WOMENS GOLF Toy English Amateur halfway leader

Cornwall amateur golfer Emily Toy image courtesy & copyright Leaderboard Photography via England GolfCornwall’s Emily Toy tops the English Women’s Amateur Championship at halfway stage on six-under par 148 heading into today's final two rounds. 

Consistent Toy returned back to back 69s at The Wilmslow in Cheshire, to edge one stroke ahead of a group of four on 139. Toy (Carlyon Bay GC) leads the 46 qualifiers who will return for today’s thrilling final 36 holes.  

In pursuit are Hollie Muse, who reached the semi-finals of the British women’s amateur; St Rule Trophy winner Lianna Bailey; Curtis Cup player Annabell Fuller and recent US college graduate Georgina Blackman. 

It doesn’t end there. The leaderboard is packed with top quality players, such as the group of three on four under: Curtis Cup player Sophie Lamb and the Yorkshire pair of Nicola Slater, the English women’s match play champion, and Charlotte Heath, the girls’ winner at the Sir Henry Cooper Junior Masters. 

Toy is no stranger to being in the mix. She’s a past English girls’ champion and, as an Exeter University student, has an impressive university golf record, including a win in last year’s R&A’s Foundation Scholars’ Tournament. 

Yesterday was all about keeping the momentum going, typified by her response to two dropped shots early on.
The 20-year-old came straight back with a pair of birdies, remarking: “I changed that around quickly.” After that she played steadily on, getting up and down when necessary, and after signing for her 69, commented: “I’m pretty happy with that.” 
 
Round one leader Chloe Howard (Boringdon Park GC) remains two under par and tied 10th on 142 following a second round 75.
Bude & North Cornwall's Georgia Price is ninth on 141 storming up the leaderboard following a second round 69.
