Emily Slater reflects on development in Rose Ladies Series
Emily Slater has expressed thanks to competition organisers at the culmination of the Rose Ladies Series.
The Grand Final at Wentworth had to be cancelled on Saturday after a fire had begun on Chobham Common and spread to the golf course on Friday.
The result meant that Alice Hewson was declared winner of the Computacenter Grand Final, and Charley Hull was the winner of the American Golf Order of Merit of the Rose Ladies Series.
When the round was abandoned, Slater tied 27th with 155 in the 54-hole finale.
The Gog Magog Golf Club member, in her first year as a professional, said on social media: “Sad scenes at Wentworth yesterday for the #RoseLadiesSeries finale due to the wildfire. A sad end to an amazing 8 week stretch.
“Very thankful that everyone is okay, massive thanks go the the emergency services & all the staff both at Wentworth & the Rose Series for keeping everyone safe.
“Despite this ending not being the outcome the series deserves, what an 8 weeks it’s been! Very thankful & grateful to have had the opportunity to play in world class fields at world class venues in my first year as a professional, and making history in the women’s game. Some good results, a couple top 10’s including a t2nd to build on for the rest of the season.”
“Special thankyou to @mollythorne5 @p1j7m @excelsm @justinprose99 @kjrosefoundation @american_golf @computacenteruk for allowing us this opportunity, and for your hard work throughout for which this wouldn’t have been possible.
“Also a special mention to @chinnydipper @buriedelephantgolf for supporting me these last few weeks, excited to carry on the journey!”
