Curtis Cup star competes in English girls’ championship30th July, 2012 by Rebecca Haydock
One of golf’s brightest stars, the 17-year-old Curtis Cup winner, Bronte Law, will be returning to her home county of Cheshire this week to compete in the English girls’ championship at Sandiway Golf Club.
The championship will take place between Tuesday, July 31 and Thursday, August 2 alongside the English under-15s and under-13s girls’ championships that will be taking place simultaneously at Delamere Forest Golf Club. This means that Cheshire will contain almost 250 of England’s most talented girl golfers this week with all three championships completing 18 holes on each of the first two days.
Law, from Bramhall Golf Club, helped Great Britain and Ireland beat the USA for the first time in 16 years in the Curtis Cup last month. This year she has also been runner-up in the French lady junior championship and winner of the Northern ladies’ championship.
Despite Law carrying the local hopes in the English girls’ championship, she will no doubt have intense competition in the form of 17-year-old Elizabeth Mallet, who won the competition in 2010, Emily Taylor who won the under-18s event at the St Rule Trophy and Gabriella Cowley, who won the under-15s championship in 2011. Playing alongside Law will be Charlotte Leatham, Poppy Finlay, Gemma Clews, Abbie Cowlard and Ella McClintock, making the borough of Vale Royal the place to be for exciting competition this week.
