Yorkshire’s Emma Brown wins Astor Salver
Yorkshire’s Emma Brown (right) won the Astor Salver for the second time with a three-under par total for 36 holes at The Berkshire.
Emma, who held the trophy two years ago in her maiden name of Duggleby, will be back at The Berkshire in July for the English strokeplay championship. “It was a good practice round,” she laughed.
The Malton & Norton player started on the Blue course with a three-under 69 and followed up with a level par 73 on the Red to win by a shot from Sahra Hassan of Wales.
“I started a bit scrappy in the morning but then I had a few birdies. I got off to an iffy start in the afternoon as well and was three-over after six but then I didn’t drop any more shots and came back in three-under,” she said.
Emma’s plans for this season include defending the British mid-amateur championship as well as playing in the English strokeplay, which she won 10 years ago. She is also considering trying to qualify for the Women’s British Open. She recently reached the semi-finals of the English championship at Ganton – an event which she has won twice.
