With just two events remaining on the 2012 LET Access Series schedule, it will be a fight to the finish to top of the Order of Merit. Scotland’s Pamela Pretswell is currently 2,327 points ahead of Frenchwomen Marion Ricordeau, who had held the leading place on the Order of Merit for the majority of the season.
Ricordeau’s points have been boosted by a win at the season opener Terre Blanche Ladies Open in France, while Pretswell claimed the Ljungybed Park PGA Ladies Open in May. They are followed in third place by Norway’s Cecilie Lundgreen, this year’s only double-winner so far, with the Kristianstad Ahus Ladies Open and Women’s Bank Open titles to her name.
The Crete Ladies Open, which takes place from the 28 - 30 October and the Banesto Tour Valencia in November will both award 5,000 points to the winners, meaning the Order of Merit winner could come from outside the current top three. At the end of the season, the top three players on the Order of Merit following the final event will be offered cards on the Ladies European Tour for the 2013 season, whilst players in 4th – 15th will advance to final stage of Tour school, which takes place at Amelkis Golf Club & Al Maaden Golf Resort in Morocco from the 13 - 17 December.
