Annabell ties for Annika Invitational

Annabell  Fuller

England teenager Annabell Fuller topped an international field to tie for first place in the Annika Invitational Europe.

The 15-year-old from Roehampton, Surrey, was three-under par for the tournament, with a birdie on the last hole for rounds of 75 69 69.

But her title challenge was foiled by Sweden’s Amanda Linner who won a sudden-death play-off on the third extra hole. The players halved the first two holes in par, birdie, before Linner’s birdie beat Fuller’s par.

The sixth Annika Invitation Europe was held at Halmstad Golf Club, Sweden and attracted a top-class girls’ field. Linner won the French U21 championship earlier this season while third-placed Julia Engstrom (Sweden) became the youngest-ever British women’s champion when she took the title in 2016 aged 15.

Fuller was third in the recent German girls’ open, was part of England’s winning team in the U16 international against Spain and has been selected for GB&I’s U16 team for the junior Vagliano Trophy match against the Continent of Europe next weekend.
