Pamela chosen for GB&I team

The two Scots - Pamela Pretswell and Kelsey MacDonald - named earlier today in the Great Britain side of five for the Astor Trophy international team event did not know of their selection until it was announced.
So you can imagine their reaction to the news that they would be playing against most of the best female amateurs in the world from New Zealand, South Africa, Canada and Australia.
"Delighted to be selected for the Astor Trophy team. It is such a great honour to play for Great Britain and Ireland.
"I loved every minute of playing in the Vagliano Trophy two years ago and the Curtis Cup last year, so I am very much looking forward to the event and trying to defend the title that was won by Britain in South Africa four years ago."
The Astor Trophy tournament which is a round-robin team-matchplay event will be hosted by Fairhaven Golf Club at Lytham St Annes, Lancashire from Wednesday to Sunday, June 15 to 19.
It promises to be a great event, not only for players such as Pamela and Kelsey but also spectators because the field is made up of the very best female amateurs in the world.
The two girls ranked No 1 and No 3 in the Women's World Amateur Rankings - Lydia Ko and Cecilia Cho - will be spearheading a New Zealand team which will start favourites to take the title.
