Lindsay Brown about to play in Omega Dubai Ladies Masters
Jenny Brown sends good wishes and news of her daughter, Lindsay who is about to turn pro and go to Q-school. She writes,
Remember me from KZNLGA !!!
Hope you are all well over there, and would like to take this opportunity to wish you and all at WGSA a very Merry Xmas and a great New Year.
I live in the UAE now, just outside Dubai……My daughter Lindsay, a former KZLNGA Player, is with me here and I thought you might be interested to hear how well she is flying the flag here with her golf.
She is winning lots of tournaments and playing off a 2 hcp off our men’s tees here in Al Ain !! She plays well off our Ladies tees but the course rating is 68 and her hcp was not changing. I think they got fed up with her winning all the longest drives as well lol !!! It was also to prepare her for the bigger tournaments coming up that she is going to play.
The exciting news is that she has received an invite to play with the Ladies from the European Tour when they play in Dubai at The Emirates Golf Club next week 14-17 December. She is one of only two amateurs in the field ……..looking forward to playing with the “Big Guns ” !! Maybe she will draw Michelle Wie or Laura Davies eh !! I think she is hoping to actually draw one of the South African girls….Lee-Anne Pace, Ashleigh Simon, Stacy Bregman, Tandi Cunnigham are all players she knows and has played with before…… anyway we are just hoping that nerves don’t get the better off her and she performs as well as she has been doing lately !!
She is also been accepted and is playing in the LET Qualifying School to be held at La Manga, Spain in January…….going to have a crack at turning Pro, if she doesn’t try she will never know ……….Tough school there though, 220 odd players vying for 30 cards !!
In a later email, Jenny writes, Thought might interest you …… article in our national newspaper re Lindsay playing in European Tour Tournament here this week !!
