Annabel Dimmock, 17-year-old England international and Wentworth Club member, scored the best win of her career so far at Coral Ridge Country Club, Fort Lauderdale in Florida yesterday.
England's Annabel Dimmock, the No 5 seed, beat the No 3 seed, Isabella DiLiso from Florida by one hole in the final of the Jones Doherty Challenge Cup, the last individual event of the 2014 Orange Blossom Tour. Annabel knocked out the No 1 seed, Marisa Messana by 6&4 in the semi-finals.
Last weekend, Miss Dimmock finished second in the South Atlantic Ladies Amateur ("The Sally").
Kelsey MacDonald, now a tour pro but a winner on the Orange Blossom Tour herself when she made the trip more than once as a Stirling student, caddied for Annabel in both the Jones Doherty Challenge Cup and "The Sally."
Annabel's World Amateur Ranking is bound to soar with these back-to-back performances and her hopes of making it into the GB and I team to defend the Curtis Cup at St Louis, Missouri in June have soared. The top four in the WAGR will gain automatic selection. So too will the top two in the LGU Order of Merit who have not qualified through the WAGR. The last two places in the team of eight, to be captain again by Tegwen Matthews, will be chosen by the LGU Selection Panel.
