Two England teams will challenge for the Nations Cup at this weekend’s Welsh women’s open championship at Aberdovey.
Lily May Humphreys (pictured) and Sophie Lamb, who have both been selected for the GB&I Curtis Cup team, will be joined by Georgia Price in a team drawn from the England Golf women’s squad.

Thalia Kirby, Martha Lewis and Hannah Screen make up the second team and are all members of the England Golf girls’ squad.

The 54-hole championship starts tomorrow and continues until Sunday. The Nations Cup will be decided by the best two scores from three in each round.

Humphreys will be looking to add this championship to the Scottish women’s open, which she won last month and holds alongside English, British, European and US titles. Lamb was the low amateur at the 2017 Ricoh Women’s British Open and a past winner of the British stroke play title. Price returns consistently high finishes.

The three girls are all looking for a big win after coming very close last season. Lewis was runner-up in the 2017 English girls’ championship, Kirby was in a play-off in the English U16 girls’ championship and Screen was runner up in the women’s British stroke play and the Sir Henry Cooper Junior Masters.
