Podcast: Bronte Law – England Golf helped tee up my career

Bronte Law has signed up to be an England Golf ambassador – and in this month’s podcast she shares with us her inspirational rise to the top and dreams for the future.

The 26-year-old star of the LPGA Tour and Ladies European Tour has come on board to help England Golf promote the club and amateur game.

It’ s a subject she cares passionately about.

From starting out as a five-year-old at Bramhall Golf Club in Cheshire, Bronte fought to to become a two-time English Women’s Amateur champion and the best female amateur in Europe.

By 2019, she’d turned pro and won on tour, played a hero’s role in the Solheim Cup win over the USA at Gleneagles and become established as one of the world’s best golfers.

In a wide-ranging and in-depth interview for the England Golf podcast, Bronte reveals several sides to her character, recalls her journey to the top and dreams still to be fulfilled.

Listen to the full feature in the January edition of the podcast to hear Bronte talk about a variety of subjects from her winter training base in Barbados.

Bronte on giving back to the game: “England Golf was a huge part of my amateur career and definitely a huge part of the reason I am where I am now.”

Bronte on playing for England: “At that time we wore pink jumpers everywhere. Everything in my wardrobe was pink for a period of time! I loved those experiences.”

Bronte on importance of club membership: “I owe a lot to Bramhall and go back every time I’m home….I was the youngest person they’d ever allowed to be a member….. It’s important that from the age kids start, they are not lost in a gap.”

Bronte on twice becoming English Women’s Amateur champion: “My grandad was there at Hunstanton when I won and that was very special to me. I associated both the wins with a family experience. My mum and sister (Isbaella, pictured below) were at both events…we had fun on and off the course.”

Bronte on toughness of character: “I have a run which is a mile straight up a hill. Once you achieve it it’s a blessing and a curse. You know you can do it so there’s no reason to ever stop…. It’s a metaphor for life…”

Bronte on championing women’s golf: “The more women of all ages we can get into golf the better. As more women get into golf, the more incredible people they will meet.”

Bronte on her ambitions for 2022: “I’d love to get my hands on a major trophy. After talking to a few people and getting advice from major champions of the past I’m excited for what the year brings.”
