Battling Annabel just misses out in Spain

8th March 2014

England international Annabel Dimmock underlined her fine form of 2014 by reaching the final of the Spanish women's amateur championship at El Saler.

The 17-year-old from Wentworth has already won this year on Florida's Orange Blossom Tour - and, despite a battling performance, she just failed to secure her second victory of the new season, losing the Spanish title by 2/1 to Sweden's Linnea Strom.

The Swedish player was never behind during the match, but Annabel hung on tenaciously, despite twice trailing by three holes.

Her fighting play reduced the deficit to just one hole after the 14th, but Annabel's birdie on the 15th was bettered by an eagle from Strom who again took a two-up lead. It proved decisive when the 16th was halved in birdie threes and the short 17th in par.

Annabel (image © Leaderboard Photography) had made her way into the final with victories over players from Spain, the Netherlands and two French opponents.

Linnea Strom's opponents on her way to the final included two other England internationals. She beat Gabriella Cowley (Hanbury Manor) in the second matchplay round and Alex Peters (Notts Ladies') in the third.
