A 15-year-old from Denmark with a surname that sounds as though she has Scottish blood in her veins – Puk Lyng Thomsen – is the youngest of the four semi-finalists in the British Girls’ Open Championsip at Fairhaven Golf Club, Lytham St Annes in Lancashire.
Puk will play 17-year-old Singapore-based Jing Yan – the first Chinese player to have made the last four in this prestigious tournament – in the first semi-final at 8.30am this morning.
In the other it will be 17-year-old Michaela Finn (Sweden) against 18-year-old Roberta Liti from Siena, near Florence in Italy.
Roberta is the current Italian Women’s Open Amateur Stroke-play champion.
No English, Welsh or Irish players made it past the third round.
