Young commented on her performance saying, “I have to say my strongest point and my weakest points are meshed together and similar… And looking back just at today, I think I’m not entirely satisfied with my tee shots. I was satisfied with my iron shots, they were going the way I wanted them, and I was confident in terms of my putting..”

The English ladies who participated Charley Hull and Bronte Law. Hull came in at T17 with 29 putts per round and 16 birdies. Law had a disappointing weekend getting more bogeys than birdies and finishing at T75.
