Flora Keites finished 30th in her first national competition of the season, the Roehampton Gold Cup, which included 20 professionals in the field of 60.
She let a promising start slip in her opening round of 76 (+4) as she suffered two late double bogeys, including a short missed putt at the last. However, this still left her inside the top ten as the field found it difficult to deal with the quick greens. Unfortunately, Flora herself could not hole anything in the afternoon and could only manage 85 (+13) to drop down to mid-table.
The Gold Cup was won by professional, Sophie Walker, with 143 (-1). Amelia Williamson was the leading amateur in second place overall with 146 (+2). The full results are available on: http://www.englandgolf.org/ChampionshipsFixtures.aspx?type=&year=2017&page=2
Despite being disappointed with her finish, Flora was pleased with her long-game on which she has worked hard over the winter with her coach, Sebastien Jost.
Flora will not have to wait long for her next competitive outing as she is playing in the Hampshire Rose at North Hants on Sunday 9 April, followed by the Scottish U18 Girls’ Championship at Montrose Links 12-14 April.
