World Amateur Team Championships: Ireland In Contention After Day One

The Irish trio of Olivia Mehaffey, Paula Grant, and Anabel Wilson are right in contention at the World Amateur Team Championships at Carton House.

Mehaffey was the best of the Irish, posting a strong 70, while her teammates Anabel Wilson and Paula Grant posted 71 and 74, respectively. The Irish were playing in the heavyweight grouping of USA and Republic of Korea, who posted totals of 142 and 140 respectively. World No. 1 Jennifer Kupcho also posted a 70 on the Montgomery Course, further underlining the strength of Mehaffey’s performance.

Japan sit atop the World Amateur Team Championships leaderboard with 136 after a stunning seven under par 65 from sixteen-year-old Yuka Yasuda. The feat is all the more impressive considering she had just touched down in Ireland less than twenty-four hours prior to hitting the Carton House fairways.

England sit thirteen shots back after the team of Annabel Fuller (74), Sophie Lamb (75) and Hollie Muse (77) posted a score of 149.
