Paula Carver (Worthing) and Clarissa Bushell (West Sussex) will meet in the Semi-Finals of the English Senior Women’s Amateur Championship tomorrow, Friday 17th May.
Paula beat Amanda Mayne 4&3 and with only her 2nd appearance in the Champs, says “To win this morning (in the quarter-finals) was great because it took me a step further than last year. This afternoon I had no expectation but I got off to a flyer.”
Clarissa is really enjoying this event, “I just feel more settled, a lot more positive,” she said. “I’m playing nicely, everything feels good, the weather is fantastic, the course is fantastic. I’m loving it!” She beat Lancashire’s Susan Caton (Pleasington) 5&3, having plotted her way round the course and wielded her secret weapon – a putter ‘stolen’ from her husband!
Paula and Clarissa will tee off at 8am tomorrow, and the winner will meet either Caroline Berry or Jackie Foster.
We wish them both the VERY best of luck.
