Her earlier achievements, in her maiden name of Duggleby, include winning the British, English, European, South African matchplay and Scottish strokeplay championships.

Emma, who has just started a new job at Sandburn Hall Golf Club in Yorkshire, commented: “I still enjoy competing and I have missed playing in the team events.”
