The 91st International Women’s Amateur Golf Championship in Portugal, which was played at the Montado Hotel & Golf Resort, from 12-15 May 2021, was won by Lucie Malchirand (22nd World Championship), who totalled 274 strokes, 14 under par, with rounds of 73-66-67-68, leaving compatriot Vairana Heck four shots away with 278 (-10), rounds of 72-79-69-67 and Spanish Andrea Revuelta Goicoechea in third place with 280 strokes, 71-74-66-69.
It was the “revenge” of Malchirand, who in 2019 had lost by the slightest difference in a great duel to her compatriot Pauline Roussin-Bouchard and who in 2020 had finished in the 11th position.
The Portuguese Sofia Barroso Sá not only significantly improved her final position compared to 2020, reaching the 12th position (when she was 22nd last year), but also achieved the best ranking of a Portuguese golf amateur since the tournament changed its format from match play to stroke play In 2008.
The previous best Portuguese position belonged to Marta Vasconcelos (Oporto Golf Course), with the 13th position in 2008, winning with 296 (+12), rounds of 75-73-71-79, in an edition with only 55 participants, held at Par 71 of the Benamor Golf Course.
