Law claims European Ladies’ Amateur title

Bronte Law of England was seven strokes behind entering the final round of the European Ladies’ Amateur Championship, but wound up holding the trophy.

Law, who will be a senior at UCLA, birdied the final hole to close out a 6-under-par 66 and beat Leslie Coots of Germany by one stroke at Hooks Golf Club in Hok, Sweden.

‘I had a solid game and the irons felt really good this week,” said Law, who earlier this summer helped England win the European Ladies’ Amateur Championship and went 5-0 as Great Britain and Ireland claimed the Curtis Cup.

“It’s been quite an intense summer. It feels a bit like a story, something you dream of and I couldn’t have written it any better myself, which is very special. It’s quite incredible.”

Law, a 21-year-old from Bramhall in Cheshire who is a two-time winner of the English Women’s Amateur, carded a score of 65-76-70-66–277, 11-under, while Coots finished at 68-69-67-74–278.

Olivia Mehaffey of Ireland was third at 70-73-68-68–279, while Renate Hjelle Grimstad of Norway totaled 74-67-70-70–281 to tie for fourth with Morgane Metrauz of Switzerland, who wound up at 73-62-76-70–281.

Maria Parra Loque of Spain shot 73-71-72-66–282 to tie for sixth with Lisa Pettersson of Sweden, who finished at 72-70-65-75–282, and Carlotta Ricolfi of Italy, who came in at 68-72-74-68–282.

Stina Resen of Norway totaled 67-72-75-69–283 to tie for ninth with Diane Baillieux of Belgium, who wound up at 64-69-75-75–283.
