Cloe scores a runaway Scottish win

first_img England’s Cloe Frankish scored a runaway win in the Scottish Ladies’ junior open strokeplay at Drumpellier – finishing on one-under par and leaving the field trailing seven shots behind. This was the final playing of the U21 championship and Frankish made it back-to-back victories for England, following India Clyburn’s success last year. “It’s my biggest win and it means a lot because I have put in so much hard work and it’s finally paying off,” said the 16-year-old from Chart Hills in Kent. The event was played in generally wet and windy weather and conditions called for lots of long-iron play. Frankish proved super-accurate and set a course record of four-under par 69 in the first round, finishing with three birdies in the last four holes. “It was exciting and I just wanted to get out and play the next round straight away,” said Frankish, who trains with England Golf’s U16 South East squad. She led throughout the event, scoring one under in the second round and finishing in the rain with a final round 77. “I started with three birdies but in the middle of the round I had three holes where my second shots just flew straight through the green,” said Frankish, who put it down to an adrenalin rush. “Then on the 14th it just absolutely poured down.” Now, she’s off to the English U16 girls’ championship at Royal Cromer and will follow-up at the British girls, back in Scotland. Frankish’s win underlines her good form. She was second in the Sir Henry Cooper Junior Masters, tied ninth in the English women’s amateur championship and qualified in sixth place for the knockout stages of the English women’s matchplay championship. She has also had top ten finishes this season in the Irish women’s stroke play and the Scottish U16s and was a reserve for the GB&I team for the Junior Vagliano match.
