Glorious July for Nicola
July proved to be a momentous month for Lindrick's Nicola Slater.
The Lindrick teenager began with rounds of 65 & 69 to win the Bridget Jackson Bowl at Handsworth GC. Then it was on to Kirby Muxloe for the English Womens Championship where rounds of 74 & 72 ensured she qualified for the final rounds of match play. Steady progress through the rounds guarenteed an appearance in the final against Samantha Fuller where sinking a 35ft putt final clinched a 3 & 2 victory to become the England Women's Open Matchplay Champion.
Next stop was Wilmslow for the English Womens Amateur Championship where Nicola was in the leading group going into the last round with a fourth place finish being a very credible result. The final stage of her July diary was the Yorkshire Junior Championship at Pontefract where rounds of 71 & 69 were enough to take the title by two shots from fellow Lindrick club mate Mia Eales-Smith.
A fantastic month for the 18yo, pictured above at Pontefract with Mia.
