CHARLES TOUR: JOHN JONES STEEL LTD HAREWOOD OPEN: PERRY LOOKS TO BOW OUT IN STYLE

19/10/2012

New Zealand rep Emily Perry, in her final event as an amateur, carded a one under par 71 to lead local Sylvie Williams (73) by two shots.

 

 


Perry is playing in her first event since representing New Zealand at the Espirito Santo World Teams Championship where they finished fourth.

 

“I played really well today,” said the 21-year-old from the Lochiel Golf Club.

 

“I drove one of the par fours which was an easy birdie. I dropped a couple of shots coming home but overall I am happy.”

 

The big hitting Waikato No.1, who was also at the Michael Campbell Foundation Scholarship with Munn and Sarah Bradley, said the time with the major champion was invaluable.

 

“He taught me a lot of great shots around short game and pitching and chipping and using the bounce differently. I have no imagination with those shots and that really helped me today when we were playing on hard fast greens his advice was in my mind and it really helped.”

  

Perry, who has won six Charles Tour titles to be the most successful women’s golfer in the series history, is preparing for first stage of Ladies European Tour qualifying in Morocco in December. 

 

“I am looking forward to closing the door on being an amateur because I feel like I am ready. They always say don’t go until you’re ready but I am ready and I am looking forward to it.

 

“I have won six Charles Tour titles and I am always here to win. I am looking for the ideal buildup for Ladies European Tour qualifying in Morocco and a win would give me that confidence. “
