Pamela Pretswell had a 72 yesterday and was three shots off the pace after 3 rounds of the 72-hole event at Morfontaine Golf Club. She had rounds of 69 74 and 72
Pamela, the first-round pacemaker with a 69, was deprived, however, of the opportunity to regain the lead when the fourth and final round of the French international women's amateur golf championship at Morfontaine was cancelled because of heavy rain.
The championship for the Cecile de Rothschild Trophy was cut to three rounds and Pamela finished third on 215 (69-74-72), three shots behind the winner, Perrine Delacour from Paris, winner of the British girls open title two years ago. Perrine scored 73, 66 and 73 for a four-under-par 212.
Another French player, Fiona Puyo (72-72-70) finished second on 214, one ahead of Pamela.
Rising English teenage star Charley Hull finished joint fourth on 217 with scores of 70, 74 and 73.
