AFTER an outstanding amateur career that has seen her win numerous top national and international competitions, including the Curtis Cup, Bramhall Golf Club’s young star Bronte Law has turned professional.
The 20-year-old, who has been one of the top players on the USA College circuit and finished in second place in the amateur rankings, will compete on the LPGA Tour in the USA.
She played in the early LPGA qualifying rounds and then the final five rounds at Daytona Beach.
She finished in 24th place with two-under-par and only two shots off the top-flight qualification but her score was enough for entry into 75 per cent of the competitions on the American Tour in 2017.
Bronte said: “Well there is my amateur career at an end and I will be starting 2017 as a partial LPGA Tour player and I am officially a professional golfer.
“I want to thank my family for supporting me and the UCLA (University of California, Los Angeles) for all they have done for me.
“I unfortunately didn’t have my best game in the final qualifier but I managed to make the best out of what I had. I’m excited for what is to come and will now be taking a well deserved vacation!”
Bramhall spokesperson Kath Ince said: “Everyone at Bramhall is very proud of her, particularly our professional Richard Green who has coached her from a very young age.”
