Three girl internationals will represent England in the team event at next week’s British girls’ championship at West Kilbride Golf Club, Scotland.

The team event is played alongside the championship’s two stroke play qualifying rounds on Monday and Tuesday, August 10 and 11, with the best two scores counting each day.

The players:

Sammy Fuller, 16, (Roehampton) tied for the Irish U18 stroke play, but lost a title play-off. She was 16th in the English women’s amateur where she shot 66 in the first round.

Eloise Healey, 17, was eighth in the English girls’ championship, qualified fourth in the English women’s matchplay and tied 10th in the Helen Holm Scottish stroke play.

Lizzie Prior, 17, (Burhill) was joint runner-up in both the English women’s amateur and the English girls’ championship. She has won the Fairhaven Trophies and the Critchley Salver this season and also tied second in the Sir Henry Cooper Junior Masters.
