Four players from West Lancashire G C are playing in the English Ladies’ Amateur Stroke Play Championship at Wilmslow this week, Hollie Muse, Lauren Green (Lancashire County Champion), Eloise Healey and Maddie Raine.
After an excellent performance in the recent British Ladies’ Championship held at Hillside GC at the end of June where Hollie Muse battling a painful groin injury sustained in the second day of the qualifying rounds was the only British player to reach the semi final stage of the knockout, which she lost to the runner up Stephanie Lau of the United States. The winner was Leonie Harm from Germany.
Today Hollie although still not completely fit after her injury played a solid round finishing -4 in a field of 116 players. Our other girls unfortunately did not have a good opening round; Maddie Raine shot +9, Eloise Healey +13 and Lauren Green +15. The second round is played tomorrow and the best 40 players will progress to the final 36 holes, which are played on Thursday. Wilmslow is only around a 45 minute drive away from the club so any members who would like to go and support our girls will be very welcome.

Update - Thursday 19th July
Hollie is still very much in contention lying in joint 2nd place at -5 after a -1 round on the second day just one shot behind the leader Emily Toy (-6) at Wilmslow GC in the English Ladies’ 72 hole Strokeplay Championship.
Hollie got to -6 before dropping a shot on the last when her ball spun off the green into an awkward lie. But she declared of today’s one under par 71 round; “I’m happy with it. I played steady again, solid. I’m right in it, and as my coach says, if you play well enough you have a chance of holding the trophy.”
The final 36 holes will be played today (19.7) and Hollie’s tee times are 10.30 am and 3.00 pm.
