Sarah Kemp's near miss in Morocco

Disappointing near miss but positives for Kemp (Photo: Ladies Euopean Tour )
NSW golfer Sarah Kemp has narrowly missed out on her first Ladies European Tour title when beaten in a playoff for the Lalla Meryem Cup in Rabat, Morocco.

Kemp was unable to match the birdie of Sweden’s Jenny Haglund at the second extra hole but the finish matched her best ever on the LET and after losing her LPGA Tour status late last year the performance will be a great boost for the 32 year old.

Kemp would finish in a tie for second with Czech Klara Spilkova.

Kemp had shared the lead into today’s final round and actually moved three clear of the field when she birdied the 10th but a double bogey at the 11th after finding the water would eventually cost her the chance of the title.

“I’m obviously a little disappointed. I didn’t play as well as I had the past few days, but my goal this week was to put myself in contention and I did that, so it’s my equal best finish out on the Ladies European Tour and all in all it’s been a great week.

“I actually really enjoyed the play-off. I was nervous, but I had a really good time. I hope that I get that opportunity again and hopefully I can do something different. All in all, I achieved my goal for this week and the more I’m in this situation the better I’ll get at it.”

Kemp earned €33,000 for her efforts.

Queenslander Amy Walsh finished 47th and West Australian Whitney Hillier was 59th.
