Melissa Reid scores top ten finish in English Open




The 19-year-old from Derby was a little disappointed with her ninth place, which she scored with a one-under par total of 215 and which included a bogey on her final hole. But she remarked: “It’s a top 10 and it’s only my second pro event.

“I’ve played in this twice now and finished 11th and 9th – it isn’t too bad, especially in a field like this week’s which included Laura Davies, Becky Brewerton, Trish Johnson and Karen Stupples. It was great to play amongst the big girls!”

She opened with a two under 70, added rounds of 73 and level par 72 – and was never out of the tournament’s top ten.

Melissa, who plays at Chevin, plans to turn professional at the end of next season, added: “I know I’m not too far away. If anything, I’m probably already there technically but this had shown me where I need to improve. It’s going to make me work even harder to get up there and to be the best.”

Melissa represented the English Ladies’ Golf Association in the tournament
and her next big date is playing in the England team in the European ladies’ team championship in Italy, which starts on Tuesday.

“We’ve got a really good team and I think we are in with a great shout,” said Melissa.

The Ladies English Open was won by Becky Brewerton of Wales who finished on seven under par and three shots clear of England’s Kirsty Taylor and Karen Stupples and Sweden’s Linda Wessberg.
