Eve Neild joint third

Friday, May 3, 2019

Norfolk youngster Eve Neild produced a superb performance at the R&A Girls’ Under-16 Championship

The 14-year-old from Royal Norwich went into the tournament at Fulford in Yorkshire with a handicap of six, meaning she was ranked 85th out of the 90 qualifiers.

But that didn't stop her from leaving a whole host of top internationals in her wake as she put together three solid rounds to finish as the top home player in joint third place.

The Thorpe St Andrew School pupil was a model of consistency around the testing lay-out, matching the par of 75 on the opening two days before a final round of 76 left her one over for the tournament.

Eve ended up seven shots adrift of champion Francesa Fiorellini from Italy and four behind second placed Carmen Griffiths from Scotland, who finished with a five under 70.

“It was a really good performance from Eve and we are all very proud of her,” said dad John. “It is a testament to all the hard work she has put in and we'd like to say a big thankyou to her coach at Royal Norwich Neil Lythgoe.”
