Bronte Law from Bramhall wins title on Costa del Sol

Lesley Atkins finishes third in

Andalucia Under-16 girls' event

Lesley Atkins (Minto), winner of the Scottish Under-14 girls' title last year, finished third behind eight-stroke winner Bronte Law (Bramhall) and English schoolgirls champion Jamie-Leigh Voss (Kirby Muxloe) in the Under-16 girls' section of the Andalucia Junior European Open championship on the Costa del Sol, Spain.
In sometimes very warm and also quite windy conditions over two very good links-style courses - Finca Cortesin and Alcaidesa Links - Bronte had rounds of 77, 74 and 74 for a total of 225. She is a member at Bramhall Golf Club, Stockport in Cheshire.
The 15-year-old , who was introduced to golf by her dad at the age of four, won by eight shots from Jamie-Leigh on 233. Lesley's total was 240. Lesley Atkins is pictured on the left.
Sorry we don't have the individual rounds, except in relation to Bronte Law who by the way wants to go to an American university when she is old enough and study for a sports science degree.
