January 23, 2015: Chinese rookies Zhang Jienalin and Zhang Wei Wei will begin their first Ladies European Tour season at the inaugural Rookie Orientation Days in Alicante, Spain, from January 29-31.

 

The Orientation Days at Dénia Marriott La Sella Golf Resort and Spa will bring together players who qualified for the Ladies European Tour through the Lalla Aicha Tour School and the LET Access Series. Zhang Jienalin finished tied for 36th at last month’s Lalla Aicha Tour School Final Qualifying in Marrakech, Morocco, while Zhang Weiwei tied for 51st.

 

Zhang Jienalin said: “As my professional career begins, I am very happy to have the opportunity to learn more about the Ladies European Tour and I feel that the programme will make the transition much easier. I can’t wait to start my career at this wonderful five-star resort and I look forward to the journey ahead with the guidance of the LET team.”

 

Mike Round, the LET’s Director of Development and Membership, said: “The aim of the Rookie Orientation Days is to provide those who are new to the Tour with information and guidance so that their introduction to Tour life is as smooth as possible. As well as educating them about the LET’s vision and values, they’ll also be given practical information about playing in professional events.”

 

In addition to the programme of training sessions, the Orientation Days will also feature a Pro-Am and a welcome dinner during which former British Women’s Open champion Marta Figueras-Dotti will speak.
