Seven Scots Qualify for the British Amateur Matchplay Championship

At the renowned venue in the north-west, the English trio of Emily Price, Rosie Belsham and Isabelle Simpson were joined by Carolina Melgrati from Italy and Denmark’s Amalie Leth-Nissen in signing for one-under-par rounds of 71 in the Women's 
Amateur Championship Qualifier

From a starting field of almost 100 competitors aged from 13 to 57, the quintet led the top 64 players into the match play stage.

With stroke play qualifying reduced to one round after Tuesday’s inclement weather, play was delayed a further hour on Wednesday morning due to strong winds. West Lancashire, hosting the championship for the first time, was then blessed with far more favourable conditions. 

7 Scots have qualified for the Matchplay which starts tomorrow including West of Scotland's  Hazel MacGarvie (Royal Troon) and Lorna McClymont (Milngavie) the 2019 D&A County Champion
