Aberdeen golfer Michele Thomson continued her fine start to the Ladies European Tour season by finishing tied fourth at the Women’s NSW Open in Australia.

Thomson carded a closing round of level par 72 to finish on eight under – seven strokes adrift of winner Maja Stark from Sweden.

The Scot had to battle back from a triple bogey eight at the opening hole followed by dropped shots at the second and fourth.

And a run of six birdies in the space of seven holes helped her move back up the leaderboard for a top-five finish.

Thomson, who earned €8,505, moves up to seventh in the order of merit with 572.21 points.

Stark claimed her third Ladies European Tour win in eight months with the five-stroke victory at Coolangatta and Tweed Heads Golf Club.

The 22-year-old carded a fourth round of 70 (-2) to finish on 15-under-par and seal the win ahead of compatriot Johanna Gustavsson.

She said: “I am super happy to get my third win on tour. It was a slow start to the season in the US and then a couple of second places, so I’m very happy to get the win.

“I started with a birdie on one, so that helped but then it was a birdie drought for a long time until I made a bogey.

“Then I had to get my act together and finish well. I was a bit stressed because Johanna was playing so good.”
