Emily Slater, from Ely a member of Gog Magog golf Club in Cambridge, has won 2 major competitions in a week!
First, she won the Cambs and Hunts Country Championships on Sunday then travelled to Sunningdale golf club in Berkshire on Tuesday, one of the most prestigious golf clubs in the UK. Then she picked up the Critchley Salver. The tournament was contested by a class field of players ranging in handicap from 2 to +4.
In the first 18 holes on the new course she missed several opportunities to come in 1 over par and 4 shots off the pace.
The second 18 holes were played on her favourite course the old. The old course at Sunningdale is the hardest and most sort after to play. Conditions were more tricky in the afternoon with firm greens and a stiffening wind. Emily eagled the last to shoot 2 under par to clinch the championship.
Emily has been playing both national and international competitions since she was twelve and is hoping to turn professional later this year.
