Golf - 16. January 2009.

Holly scores top 10 finish in USA



The 17-year-old from Woodhall Spa in Lincolnshire was seventh overall after posting two-sub par rounds during the 72-hole tournament at Sebring. Holly is a member of the English Women’s Golf Association Performance Squad.

In the second round, Holly shot a five-under 67, which was the low score of the day. She followed up with 69 in the third round which moved her up into a share of third place. Holly opened with 78 – partly due to “losing” her ball up a palm tree – and finished with a 75.  

The event was won by American Candace Schepperle who coasted to a seven-stroke win with a final round of seven-under par 65 for a course record. She was 13-under for the tournament.

This is Holly’s first competitive trip overseas and she also finished fourth in the   
Canadian Junior Golf Association’s World Junior Challenge, which also took place in Florida.

The Orange Blossom Tour moves this week to the Oceanside Country Club for the South Atlantic Amateur, known as the SALLY.  This was won last year by Liz Bennett of Brokenhurst Manor, Hampshire, who went on to become England’s number one amateur and is currently playing at Ladies European Tour qualifying school.

This year’s SALLY field includes England international Rachel Connor of Manchester, who is a member of EWGA’s Performance Squad. Harriet Beasley of Woburn and Holly Calvert of Lancaster are also playing as part of a group from Stirling university.
