A quartet of female golfers, comprising Lytchett Minster School’s Year 10 student Louise Burke, along with Lydia Cryer, Lottie Woad and Rachel Gourley, dominated the singles play against Switzerland to emerge victorious from their under-16 international match on Friday, 23 August.
The Swiss took an early lead but some regrouping during the lunch break led to the English girls storming ahead, with each player emerging victorious to secure a dominant 4.5 – 1.5 team victory.
National Girls’ Coach, Mark Day, said: “There was definitely an element of excitement, nerves and anticipation from the girls at the start with it being a new experience for them. They came up against a stronger Swiss team than before which was good for the girls.
“Our girls showed some nerves and three-putted the 18th to halve the second foursomes but we regrouped in the afternoon and committed to personal standards which they delivered 100%.
“They didn’t let the occasion overwhelm them, they kept cool, played their golf and I couldn’t ask any more of them.”
