Bronte Law beats mixed field in

North of England championship

Cheshire’s Bronte Law (pictured by Cal Carson Golf Agency, receiving the best under-14 performance prize in the recent British girls championship at West Lancs) beat the mixed field by four shots in the North of England U16 championship at Heswall.
Bronte, 14, from the English Women’s Golf Association Select North Squad, is thought to be the first girl to top the leaderboard in this event. She did it with scores of 76, 72, 70 and 79 for a one-over par total on the girls’ card of 297. She won both the girls’ U16 and U14 trophies. Bronte’s closest overall challenger was Heswall’s Oliver Carr, who finished on 301, while she was 10 shots clear of the next girl, Luna Sobron of Spain.
Chris Williamson, manager of EWGA’s championship squad, said: “It was just amazing to see Bronte’s name at the top of the leaderboard. She played extremely well and everyone admired her golf and her businesslike approach.”
Bronte took the lead with a four-under par 70 in the third round, which like the final round, was played in strong winds interspersed with heavy downpours. “You had to fight out there,” said Bronte. “It was really hard, very tiring. It made it difficult to concentrate because you were putting your brolly up and down and trying to keep everything dry. But it was good! “Everything just felt right for me all week. I trusted my swing and focussed on the golf course. It’s great.” This was Bronte’s last event before she returns to school at the end of a successful summer. Her other wins include the U18 title at the English stroke-play championship and the North region girls’ championship. She is also Cheshire girls’ champion
