Yorkshire’s Emma Duggleby wins British Mid-Amateur





“I got off to a good start on the first day when it was really windy and quite difficult. I managed to keep it quite tidy,” said Emma, from Malton and Norton.

Despite the conditions, she posted a one-under 72 and led by four shots. After a second round 76 she was three clear and she extended her lead with another 72 in the final round.

Her closest challengers were Bronwyn Mullins-Lane of Australia and Scotland’s Valerie Melvin.

“It’s always nice to win a British title,” said Emma, 35, who has previously been British champion, English champion (twice), European champion, South African matchplay champion and Scottish strokeplay champion.

It’s the first time she’s won this trophy, which remembers the late Angela Uzielli, who was one of the leading amateurs of her generation. “It’s special,” said Emma, who was captained by Angela in the 1995 European team championships. “She was a great character.”

Emma retired from international team competition last year after a career
which included playing in three Curtis Cup teams, three Vagliano Trophy teams and two Espirito Santo teams. She represented England ten times in the Home International matches and five times in the European ladies’ team championships.

“I’m still playing full-time, just not the team events,” she said. “I was using all my holiday for it and I didn’t have enough time, it had to go – but I really miss it.”

She continues to play for Yorkshire and is in the team which has reached County Finals.
