Historic triumph of the Galician golfer Fatima Cano after overcoming the coronavirus

The santiaguesa debuted her record as a professional at the IOA Championship held in California, a victory that increases her to third position in the ranking of the Symetra Tour of the United States.
New deed for Galician golf internationally. Fátima Cano from Santiago raised the IOA Championship winner trophy this weekend , on the Californian route of Morongo GC. A victory that marks the premiere of Cano’s record as a professional and that boosts him to third position in the Symetra Tour ranking , the second most important circuit in the United States. In addition, she becomes the second Galician to win a professional tournament after Marta Silva. And all this, after having overcome the coronavirus less than a month ago.
“In a way, I feel like I deserved it already. Lately I feel very comfortable with my game and I have fought for victories many times between this year and last. I have finally succeeded and the truth is that I have no words. It’s a bit overwhelming, the truth, “said Fatima Cano after winning the tournament. The Galician, who missed the first test of Michigan in the return of the Symetra after the stoppage due to the pandemic, precisely because she tested positive for covid-19 in the tests prior to the start of the competition, already achieved a commendable fourth place at the end of previous week in Mesa, Arizona.
Sixth in the last tournament played in Florida in March and before everything came to a standstill, Cano’s return to the green was unbeatable. More if you take into account the time she has been confined to her home until she tested negative for coronavirus again and was able to resume training outdoors. In addition, she becomes the first golfer in the world, at least on the main circuits, to win a tournament after testing positive.
With her victory in the California tournament , with 12 under par and 204 strokes (70-65-69), she climbs positions in the classification to access the LPGA Tour – the highest category in women’s golf . And it is that this year the promotion will be even more complicated, since only the first five will have the privilege of accessing one of their tournaments. Indiana will be Cano’s next destination, in two weeks, for the fifth round of the circuit, which will run until November with a total of 10 rounds.
