The college student bagged the biggest win of her career at Woodhall Spa today (August 1).
The Women’s Amateur Championship final ended with a 36-hole final on the Hotchkin Course at the Lincolnshire club, where Emily finished with a 4&3 victory.
But she really had to work hard for win, and her opponent wasn't going to give up without a fight.
After being two down to Lily May for most of the back nine, Emily managed to claw back a hole on the 16th and by the 18th it was all square. Then, after starting the afternoon with a par and a birdie, she kept on fighting until finally her victory was secure on the 33rd hole.
This isn't the first time that the 20-year-old student of Kent State University has won at Woodhall Spa.
She also won the English Women's Stroke Play Championship in 2016, the same year that she was named England Golf’s top girl golfer of the year.
We also recently reported that she had smashed the Ladies' Course record at her homeclub of Ludlow in Shropshire.
It seems she's really been making the most of her extended summer in the UK before she returns to America for her final two years of study.
Speaking after the final today (August 1), she said:
“To come and take the win after a very long week is unbelievable and to perform the way I have is the best feeling you can ever get as a player.
“It’s been a few years since I won – a distant memory but feels good to be holding this and having won an event of this calibre now I’m 20 years old.
“It will really help boost me and get me going for the rest of the season.”
66 of the best female amateur player competed in the tournament and, for the first time in history, the Men's Amateur Championship also took place at the same time and at the same club.
Congratulations Emily from all of us at Women & Golf.
