Bronte hits record form to win latest title

Bronte Law

English women’s champion Bronte Law broke three records as she powered to her latest win on the US women’s college circuit.

She set a course record of eight–under 64 in the first round of the PING/ASU Invitational Tournament at the ASU Karsten Golf Course in Arizona. It was also the lowest round in the history of women’s golf at University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), where she is a student.

The world number four played the next two rounds in four-under (71 69) to finish on 12-under, setting a tournament record, and winning by three shots.

It’s her second success of the college year, having previously won the Stanford Intercollegiate in October. In between, she has been second and tied-fourth on two occasions – and she’s currently ranked as the number one US women’s college player by GolfWeek.

Law, from Bramhall in Cheshire, is no stranger to low scores. When she won her second English women’s championship last summer at Hunstanton in Norfolk she opened with nine-under 63 and went on to win on 13-under – and by 16 shots.

Already this season she’s been joint runner up in the South American amateur and played in the first women’s Major of the season, the Ana Inspiration. She’s odds-on make her third appearance in the Curtis Cup this summer.

Law is a member of England Golf’s women’s squad.
