Sweden’s Julia Engstrom burst onto the European Tour winning the LET’s Rookie of the year in 2018 at the age of just 17 and might just have what it takes to put herself in contention for a strong finish at the Australian Women’s Classic Bonville when it returns to the Coffs Coast from 21st April.
Well on the mend and swinging again after slipping two discs in her back, Engstrom will hope to find the form she previously knew in 2020 when her momentum was peaking. Engstrom won the 2020 Women’s NSW Open and Place equal seventh the week before that at Bonville. She won the Lacoste Ladies Open De France that same year and knows what it takes to make the cut.
“Right now, my main focus is just to go out there and get going, and hopefully I can pick up from where I left off,” she says “You have to be realistic and realise it’s not going to happen straight away.”
After spending time recouping at home in 2021, Engstrom has returned to the professional circuit this year finishing middle of the pack at the Magical Kenya Ladies Open and the Saudi Ladies International. The timing for an all-out assault during the Aussie leg of the tour might just be perfect for Engstrom.
A full field of International professional golfers from over 30 countries will arrive at Bonville to contest the 2022 Australian Women’s Classic Bonville. Tune in LIVE as the final rounds from the 2022 Australian Womens Classic Bonville hit KAYO and FOXTEL on 23rd and 24th April
