Nocera wins by 2 in Morocco

Agadir, Morocco (SportsNetwork.com) - Gwladys Nocera fired a 1-under 70 in Sunday's final round and she went on to win by two shots at the Lalla Meryem Cup.

Nocera finished the week at 13-under-par 271 for her 14th career victory on the Ladies European Tour. Her last win prior to this one was at the Hero Women's Indian Open last year.

After shooting three straight rounds in the 60s, Nocera coasted to the finish as she got going early in her final round at Golf de L'Ocean with back-to-back birdies on two and three.

Following four straight pars from four, Nocera got to 3-under on the day with a gain on eight. She continued to cruise with another birdie on 11, pushing her to 16-under for the week.

A double-bogey on 14 and a bogey on 17 did not come back to bite Nocera as she still parred the last to win by two.

Melissa Reid (66), Felicity Johnson (67) and Nicole Garcia (70) all finished tied for second at 11-under 273, while Nanna Koerstz Madsen (68) was the next- closest competitor at 9-under 275.
