Bronte hoping to do the trick at West Lancs

WORLD number three Bronte Law  aims to complete a hat-trick of consecutive wins at next week’s English women’s amateur championship at West Lancs.

If she wins, the 21-year-old from Bramhall  will become the first player to complete three victories in a row. Her previous wins were at St Enodoc in Cornwall, and Hunstanton in Norfolk where she was 13 shots clear of the field.

Law  is clearly on excellent form. She was in the winning Curtis Cup team at last month’s match when she became the first GB&I player to win all five of her games.

In addition, she has just won the Annika Award as the top female US collegiate golfer, having already been named as the PING Player of the Year by the Women’s Golf Coaches Association. Law is a student at the University of California, Los Angeles.

Her defence begins on Tuesday when the 72-hole strokeplay championship gets under way.

The club, which previously hosted this championship in 2006, is providing three of the competitors: the internationals Eloise Healey and Hollie Muse and their fellow member Grace Cannon.

Another eight Lancashire players are in the field, including the internationals Louisa Brunt (Royal Birkdale), Sophie Lamb (Clitheroe) and Bel Wardle (Prestbury).

They are joined by Jae Bowers (Prestbury), Brogan Calvert (Lancaster), Georgia Coughlin (St Annes Old Links), Megan Cullen (Heysham) and Nicola George (Royal Birkdale).

The championship will be played from Tuesday to Thursday,. All competitors will play 18 holes on each of the first two days. The field is then cut to the leading 40 players and ties who play 36 holes on the final day. Spectators are welcome.
