Irish girls' open amateur stroke play championship

Roganstown Golf & Country Club
15-17 April 2016
Super Swedes lead field at Irish Girls Open

The Irish girls had strong hopes coming into the Irish Girls Open Stroke Play Championship at Roganstown. Some made a solid start as 15 year old Lurgan native Annabel Wilson matched the par, with a steady start of 71, while Valerie Clancy from Killarney was on course to card an impressive round until the par 4 16th. 
 An unfortunate triple bogey set her back a few shots but nevertheless a 75 was a good start to the tournament. Fellow Irish internationals Elisa Corcoran (Grange), Niamh McSherry (Lurgan) and Mairead Martin (Killarney) carded rounds in the 70’s with 74 (+3), 78 (+7) and 78 (+7) respectively.  

Two Swedish players dominate the top of the leaderboard, Sarah Kjelker after shooting a 69 (-2) and Pi-lillebi Hermansson with a 70 (-1). 
 Hermansson is also joined by Icelandic golfer Olof Einardottir on 71 for a share of second place. Kjelker started with 11 straight pars and reached -1 on the par 3 12th before giving a shot back at the 14th but bounced back with two birdies on 15 and 18 to finish with the best round of the day.
