Connie and Bertine make the cut at Girls British Champs

Erica Lefson reports, “Connie and Yushira teed off early this morning and by the time Bertine got to the course they had both already completed their rounds.

“Connie carded a 79 and finishing on + 13. She was a bit disappointed but I was sure she would be on the cut. I then set out with Bertine and for those of you you were not following on the internet she was six over after four and suffering with a back problem.

“However from the fifth, she went birdie, par, par, par and one over on the 9th despite the strong winds and rain in patches. Bertine really played magnificent golf in difficult conditions – she had two three putts (putting from just off the green) and on the last hole hit the fairway bunker to drop another shot. This giving her an 81 and 14 over.

“Well…………..after an hour of live TV watching she slowly crept from missing the cut to being in a playoff with seven girls for one then three then seven places and then making the cut as qualifier no 64!!

“Connie is so excited at qualifying – she played pool upstairs all afternoon waiting to see if she made the cut. Yushira will be her caddy tomorrow and I will caddy for Bertine. So interesting links golf in the true sense of the word………….windy and tricky. Lets see what happens tomorrow.”
