Caroline Martens Wins LET Q-School

The winner of the 2013 Ladies European Tour Q-School is Norwegian golfer Caroline Martens, who earns her tour card for the 2014 season. Martens won it easily, too - her final margin of victory was eight strokes. The LET explains Martens' recent injury history:

Having previously held Category 9b membership of the LET in 2012, Martens kept competitive by playing on the LET Access Series in 2013, but dislocated both of her shoulders during a tournament in Sweden in early September.

"It's been such a difficult year and I've worked so hard. Having this week going the way it did, it makes me feel like all the hard work I've put into it really paid off. I'm really looking forward to next year, getting started and improving on what I did here," she said.

Her Q-School performance certainly suggests Caroline is fully healed and ready for some good results in 2014.

Martens played NCAA golf at Louisiana State University (LSU), recording four Top 10 finishes. After college, Caroline played the Nordea Tour and LET Access Series before gaining the status mentioned in the blockquote above on the LET in 2012-13. In a limited number of appearances, her best finish to date in an LET tournament is a tie for ninth at the 2012 ISPS Handa Ladies British Masters.
