Rose Ladies Series: The Price is right for England’s Emily

Emily Price will fly the flag for the amateur game tomorrow in the fifth event of the Rose Ladies Series.

The former England girls’ international is the only non-professional in the field for the event staged at the JCB Golf and Country Club in Staffordshire.

The Kent State University student will line up alongside stars of the women’s game including Charley Hull, Meghan MacLaren and back-to-back series winner Gemma Dryburgh.

Price goes into the event in a rich vein of form.

Earlier this month, the 20-year-old broke the course record at Ludlow Golf Club with a five under par round of 66.

Price has progressed quickly up the amateur rankings and currently stands at 105 in the world.

On completing her studies in 2022, Price has targeted a move into professional golf with Q School followed by life on tour her ultimate aim.

The Worcestershire golfer became the second youngest winner of the English Women’s Stroke Play title in 2016 when – at the age of 16 – she won the title at Bristol and Clifton Golf Club.

Price will be hoping to keep up the fine record of amateurs competing at Rose Ladies Series events.

In the four previous tournaments, at least one amateur has claimed a top-ten finish.

The Rose Ladies Series is the brainchild of England Golf ambassador Justin Rose and his wife Kate who were keen to support the restart of golf after the disruption to play caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.

The former US Open winner and current Olympic champion has sponsored a series of seven events leading up to a grand final played in three stages between August 5-7.
