Lucy Williams qualifies for US Women’s Open

PGA Professional Lucy Williams has qualified for the US Women’s Open at the first attempt. The 24-year-old Mid Herts pro holed a 25 foot birdie putt on the last hole at The Buckinghamshire to secure a top eight finish and a place alongside the world’s best golfers at the legendary Pinehurst No.2 course in North Carolina.

Williams is the reigning Glenmuir WPGA Champion and currently in the middle of her debut year on the Ladies European Tour. She will visit Holland for the Deloitte Ladies Open before heading to North Carolina for 19 June.

She commented, “It all feels pretty insane. I can’t believe I’m going to be playing in my first major, it’s really exciting! It’s the first time they’ve held a European qualifier, and it was over a course I know quite well too so I was hopeful that I would be able to qualify. I’ve got lots of events coming up after the US Open so hopefully this will be the start of a really good year for me.”
