Annabel Wilson cards an impressive top 10 finish in Algarve tournament

LURGAN’S Annabel Wilson (above) was best of the Irish at the 94th Portuguese Women’s Amateur Championship at the Penina Championship Course in the Algarve.

Annabel carded a fourth round 73 to finish the championship in T8 on -6, 12 strokes behind winner Helen Briem of Germany. 

One shot further back on -5 was Elm Park’s Emma Fleming, who saved her best round until last (70) to end her tournament in T10. 

Hermitage’s Kate Lanigan couldn’t build on a promising start earlier in the week and had to settle for a T16 finish on -3. 

The quintet of Irish players was made up by Olivia Costello (Roscommon) and Mairead Martin (Kanturk) who both unfortunately failed to make it past the 54-hole cut.
