Rising stars ready for English Girls’ event at Formby Ladies

Rosie Bee Kim is back at the English Girls’ Under 14 and 16 Open Championship this week at Formby Ladies Golf Club and looking to step up and claim another national title.

Last year at Morecambe Golf Club, the Buckinghamshire golfer took the honours in the under 14 category.

This year, the England girls’ squad member will be competing in the older age bracket and trying to succeed Maggie Whitehead as champion.

Once again, this championship brings together the best young talent in girls’ golf over three days of competition.

In the under 14 section, the girls will play 18 holes on each of the first two days. After day two, a cut will be made and the leading 40% of the field will go on to play a further 18 holes on the final day.

The older age group will play 18 holes on each of the first two days. This time the leading 40% of the field will go on to play 36 holes on the final day.

Previous winners of the Under 16 title include several players who have gone on to play in the Curtis Cup or later turn pro such as Annabell Fuller, Lily May Humphreys, Cloe Frankish and Gabriella Cowley.

In the under 14 age group, previous winners include LET stars Alice Hewson and Georgia Hall.
