Chiara Tamburlini dominates Joburg Ladies Open with record victory margin

Posted : 21 April 2024

In a David versus Goliath moment, Chiara Tamburlini, standing at just five feet tall, emerged as a towering presence at the Joburg Ladies Open, securing a historic seven-shot victory. With a comfortable six-shot lead going into the final round, Tamburlini's dominance was evident as she closed with a 70, finishing on an impressive 17 under par. This victory not only marked her first win on both the Sunshine Ladies Tour and Ladies European Tour but also set a new record for the largest margin of victory in the tournament's decade-long history.


Reflecting on her remarkable achievement, Tamburlini expressed her gratitude and the realization of a dream she had worked tirelessly towards. Despite her young professional career, having turned pro just last August, the 24-year-old Swiss golfer showcased maturity and composure beyond her years. Starting the final round with two birdies, Tamburlini maintained her aggressive approach, securing her victory with a comfortable cushion, even amidst the pressure of dropping three shots on her final two holes.


While Tamburlini's performance took center stage, the Joburg Ladies Open also made strides beyond the fairways, with the Birdies4Dignity campaign making a meaningful impact. The City of Joburg's commitment to supporting young girls through this initiative, in collaboration with Spar, saw every birdie made by professional golfers translate into a donation of dignity hampers for girls in need. With 300 hampers donated to learners at Bramley Primary School, the tournament served as a platform to elevate women in sports and foster community support.
