Historically EM-gold ensures pigelandshold The Golden golf ball

EM-the gold retrieved of six Danish pigespillere is appointed as the largest Danish golfpræstation in 2019.

It was both surprising and historic, as the Danish pigelandshold in the golf earlier in the year brought gold medals home from the european championships in Spain.

Thursday stressed guldholdet their place in Danish the history, as the team's performance was named the greatest Danish golfpræstation in 2019.

It came to pass, when pigelandsholdet consisting of Anne Normann, Amalie Leth-Nissen, Cecilie Leth-Nissen, Natacha Harvest Husted, Olivia Gronborg and Alberte Thuesen was awarded The Golden golf ball at an event in the House of Sports in Brøndby.

The other nominees were Sebastian Cappelen, who qualified for the PGA Tour and Benjamin Poke, which won the kvalifikationsskolen for the European Tour.

But the choice fell on the pigelandsholdet due to the historical element that the team's victory was associated with.

said Claus Segment Thomsen, who sits on the board of Sportsjounalisternes Golf club and is the press officer at the Danish Golf Union, in connection with the presentation.

- A majority considered that the gold by a girl-EM was the greatest achievement, because we have not done it before. It is this which is decisive for the that it is a pionerpræstation, he says.

Guldholdets 18-year-old Natacha Harvest Husted was both pleased and surprised when she earlier in december received an e-mail that she together with his five landsholdskolleger had been selected as the recipient of The Golden golf ball 2019.

It was surreal to get to know that it was us who got it. I had not seen coming.

- There have been done so very well in the course of the year, so I had not thought about, that it was currently. So I am glad that you, as a amatørspiller can get the prize, says Natacha Harvest Husted.

It is the second year in a row that The Golden golf ball is won by the players. In 2018, the price went to guldtrioen Rasmus Højgaard, Nicolai Højgaard and John Axelsen, who won the team WORLD cup.
