Clyburn delighted with Open display
HOLLY Clyburn was the highest-placed English amateur, finishing joint 26th on her Women's British Open debut.
The 21-year-old Cleethorpes amateur golfer carded 11 over par in the Major after four rounds at Hoylake. The Curtis Cup winner, who matched the score of world number one and defending champion Yani Tseng, described her experience in the professional event as "amazing".
In December, Clyburn will attempt to qualify for next year's Ladies European Tour.
Had Clyburn been professional now, she would have earned almost £16,000 for her Open performance.

The BBC cameras gave Clyburn plenty of coverage as she made the cut with scores of 72 and 73, finishing her second outing with an eagle at the 18th. She then carded 74 to go into the final round in joint 14th.
In windy conditions, Clyburn struggled on the front nine – she triple-bogeyed the 3rd and 7th and had dropped a further three shots by the 9th.
But she recovered with seven straight pars and sandwiched a bogey at the 17th with birdies at the 16th and 18th.
Afterwards, Clyburn tweeted: "Words can't describe how good this week has been! Amazing!"
