The Evian Championship exemption committee has announced that Bronte Law is amongst three players who have been granted exemptions to the event.
The English Amateur champion named was named alongside the world number one amateur Hannah O’Sullivan (USA) and Switzerland's Albane Valenzuela (Switzerland) as those given the golden ticket to join the field of the top 120 players at the 5th and final Major of the season (15-18 September 2016).
Bronte Law is riding the wave of success. This year, the young English player, a student at UCLA in California, has been getting a lot of coverage in amateur world golfing circles. Particularly praised following her double title at the English Women's Amateur Championship in 2014 and 2015, in May Bronte Law was named 2016 Ping WGCA Player of the Year with a total of 3 wins over the year (6 during her college career). Her season's average score of 70.61 is the lowest since Lorena Ochoa (70.13) in 2002!
Honored in June by the Annika Award by 3M, awarded to the top college player of the year, she receives an exemption for the Evian Championship where she will attempt to improve on her 33rd place finish at a Major (Ricoh Women's British Open 2012).
In the meantime, she is smashing records with her noticeable participation in the last Curtis Cup at which she greatly contributed to the victory by Great Britain and Ireland up against the USA (5 matches won).
