Congratulations to Marianne Skarpnord, who earned her first career win on the Ladies European Tour on Sunday at the Deutsche Bank Ladies Open.
Skarpnord, from Norway, is in her fifth season with LET status, and she's had success before, but no wins until now. Skarpnord had seven Top 10 finishes on the LET in 2008, including a runner-up at the Ladies Irish Open. She finished 16th on the LET money last year and with the win at the Deutsche Bank moves into first on the 2009 money list.
In 2007 Skarpnord played mostly on the Telia Tour, winning three times and leading that LET-feeder tour in money.
Marianne's Web site is available in both Norwegian and English and includes her blog.
