He said it on his Instagram on April 2: “The results do not come out. It’s time to breathe, analyze and continue trusting. The work is there.” Seven days later that confidence in the game itself has paid off. And uppercase. Ana Peláez (Málaga, 1998) is the impressive queen of the Comunidad de Madrid Ladies Open after ‘breaking’ the record at the ‘Casa Club’ of the Royal Automobile Club of Spain and a wonderful Sunday after which she attends MARCA. She is present, future… And with a dream: that the 2023 Solheim Cup at Finca Cortesín live with her magic from the tee.
Ana Peláez, statements
Ana Peláez is pure talent for golf, but she also joins a team that forms one of the most talented and charismatic athletes. Together with Turismo Costa del Sol, Reale, the Pro Spain Team Program of the Spanish Golf Federation, Galpe Seguros, Ford Garum Motor, Wiemspro and SdCGolf, the Malaga woman is growing and continues with her non-negotiable work together with her coach Sergio de Céspedes and Óscar del River in the mental part.
“Everything goes through my head. Not only the daily effort, but also that of the team around me and my family. It’s not just my win. The clock works again. All gears are well placed and since I arrived in Madrid we did everything well. We studied the course to perfection, we knew how to act at all times and that caused my energy to remain intact until the last hole. If he started attacking he would dislodge the others. I knew that and it would be key to winning the tournament. I went with an aggressive mentality and the play went well for me. The birdie-par-birdie gave me a decisive advantage. I want to win. Always win. Now more than ever. We are at a very good level of play and we know that we can be up there, if the mind and body work, there are many possibilities of being up there.
“I had a pothole, but I had to get over it at that moment. I have learned from how I have felt and it helped me to value the things that I have now. We will follow the calendar of the Ladies European Tour, with competition in France. We will return home, and then having the card from the European circuit we will seek to reach the highest division. In the physical aspect we give him a lot of ‘cane’ and we continue working hard to hit longer and better. And as technical aspects we seek to strengthen everything, with a touch more fluidity. Having everything ‘under control’ doesn’t always help. Yes. The ‘Covid’ passed and we are fashionable. A fantastic job is being done, the federation continues to work and there will be more names in Spanish golf. Especially for the passion that characterizes us”.
