On the first day of the championships at Lincoln golf club today, we were treated to best weather for ages. 32 players tackled the course and our defending champion, and just back from university in the states, Tilly Garfoot led the qualifiers with consistent play over 36 holes. Elise Rymer, fresh from representing England in a brilliant 2 day match against Spain, just edged out Courtney Martland for 2nd qualifying spot.
Six home players have qualified in the top 16, and there are some very interesting matches lined up for tomorrow morning.
There are 25 players taking part in the Butlin trophy tomorrow - 18 holes of medal play.
We’re looking forward to seeing everyone tomorrow.
