HEADLINEEmma Brown takes third place in Helen Holm

England's Emma Brown (pictured right) shared third place in the Helen Holm Scottish women's open strokeplay championship at Troon.

The event was won the 14-year-old Irish twin, Leona Maguire, who has also just become the French U21 champion. She led from start to finish and was six-under par for the tournament, two clear of Scottish U21 champion Kelsey MacDonald.

Yorkshire's Emma Brown – who won this title in 2004 in her maiden name of Duggleby – was a further shot behind, alongside Leona's twin, Lisa Maguire. In the final round Emma birdied four of the last seven holes, including the 17th and 18th. She is a former Curtis Cup player and an English and British champion.

Also in the top ten were another former English champion, Naomi Edwards of Yorkshire, and Cheshire's Charlotte Wild, who was runner-up in the 2008 English girls' championship.
