Huddersfield golfer Rochelle Morris heads to Ireland on Thursday aiming to push her claims for Curtis Cup selection.

The 20-year-old who is coached at Woodsome Hall by John Eyre is already doing a pretty good job of that.

She has just finished second in the 36-hole scratch at Formby Golf Club having impressed in both the Spanish Open and the French Under 21 in Paris.

In Spain, Rochelle finished joint 29th, with 32 to qualify for the knockout stages, but unfortunately, on the last 18 countback, the county champion was down to 33rd and not in the draw.

One of the players who finished on the same score went on to reach the final.

In Paris, Rochelle made the qualifying mark by winning a play-off against three other players, but she went out in the first round of the knockout.

Undeterred, Rochelle led at the half way stage at Formby on one under.

She then played the next round in one over to finish on even par, just one shot behind the winner.

It was a solid display in preparation for the Ladies Irish Open this week and the Helen Holm Scottish Women’s Open in two weeks – two major events ahead of the Curtis Cup selection at the end of May.
