Luna Sobron Galmes had no idea that a tie for 28th place could be so exciting. The 27-year-old Spaniard aced a par 4 at the Florida’s Natural Charity Classic just one day after her push cart rolled into a water hazard at the Epson Tour season-opener.
On the par-4 sixth at the Country Club of Winter Haven, Sobron Galmes didn’t see her ball roll into the cup. But she could hear the applause after her wonderfully struck 3-wood from 247 yards out found the cup’s bottom.
“It’s crazy,” Sobron Galmes remarked. “It’s impossible to make it from that distance.”
Sobron Galmes shot a final-round 71 thanks to an early ace, her second of the tournament. She ended the competition on 2 over par, 11 strokes behind the winner, Kum-Kang Park. Last month, Sobron Galmes tied for eighth place on the Ladies European Tour’s Magical Kenya Ladies Open.
A rainy second-round 76 was sandwiched between Sobron Galmes’ two 71s. Sobron Galmes placed her push cart in front of the green on the par-4 eighth hole on Saturday as she finished her par. A burst of wind knocked her cart into the surrounding lake as she stood at the back of the green. Sobron Galmes shot four over on the two back-to-back par 5s that followed.
“What do you do after having the worst day of your life on a golf course, all wet because your trolley and clubs (dropped) into the lake, and then your ball hits a tree and doesn’t come down?” Sobron Galmes said on Instagram. Congratulations for making the cut. Never give up!!!”
She had no idea that it was only going to become more fascinating from there.
