• Nocera wins 12th title on Ladies European Tour

Gwladys Nocera came from behind to capture her second title of the year at the Suzhou Taihu Open in China.

The Frenchwoman birdied five of her last six holes to fire a final round of seven-under-par 65 to finish at 15-under-par and two clear of defending champion, Spaniard Carlota Ciganda. It was Nocera 12th LET victory in her career.
Chinese amateur Jing Yan (a) finished outright third at 12-under, while former Victorian Open winner Joanna Klatten stormed home with a magnificent 64 to finish outright fourth.

Overnight leader Veronica Zorzi didn’t have the final round she would have liked. She carded a three-over 75 to finish at eight-under and tied for 9th.

It was a good week for the Aussies, with all but one making the cut. Lindsey Wright (69), Sarah Kemp (71), Kristie Smith (72) and Bree Arthur (71) all finished at six-under-par and tied for 13th position.

Rebecca Artis (72) finished tied for 24th at four-under, with fellow compatriots Stephanie Na (72) and Frances Bondad (72) a further shot back and tied for 28th. Stacey Keating (75) finished in a share for 50th place at even par, while
Nikki Garrett was tied for 60th two shots further back.

The next stop on the tour is India, however Rebecca Artis and Stacey Keating will be missing as they head to the States to try and secure their card for the 2014 LPGA season in the final Stage of Q-School from 4 to 8 December.
