Three in-form internationals will represent England Golf in the team event at the Welsh ladies’ open stroke play championship at Southerndown from Friday to Sunday, 1-3 May. Gemma Clews (Delamere Forest) and Inci Mehmet (Royal Mid Surrey) both tied fourth in last weekend’s Helen Holm Scottish open stroke play. The third member of the team, Sophie Lamb (Clitheroe), shared eighth place. Clews, 20, helped England into second place in the Nations Cup event at the Helen Holm. She has also recently won the Delamere Comboy scratch at her own club and had top five finishes in The Leveret, at Formby Ladies’, and the Hampshire Rose at North Hants. Lamb, 17, and Clews, have both been selected for the England v Spain international at Burnham & Berrow on May 9 and 10. It will be the first time that mixed teams have played in this fixture. Mehmet, 18, (image © Leaderboard Photography) was joint runner-up in the Hampshire Rose and was the third best amateur at the recent Roehampton Gold Cup. The team event will be played across all three rounds of the Welsh championship, with the best two scores counting in each. For the first time this year the championship is being played over three days, instead of two. The field will be cut to the top 50 and ties for Sunday’s final round. 29 Apr 2015 In-form internationals head to Wales
