The 17-year-old from Royal Lytham and St Annes (image © Leaderboard Photography) defied winds gusting up to 35mph on the first day to post the low score of the tournament with a two-under 72 in the second round. Her score, combined with her opening 85, put her within one shot of the lead held by Ireland’s Gillian O’Leary. In the third and final round Emily moved ahead to secure the win, shooting 76 in blustery conditions, with  birdies on eight, ten, and 15 before she holed from 12ft on the last. The field included Irish Curtis Cup player Leona Maguire, who was unable to break 80 throughout the tournament and finished in a share of 10th place with scores of 82 83 80. Her twin, Lisa, a Curtis Cup reserve, was fourth. Already this season Emily has finished fifth in the English women’s amateur championship and helped England win the Vilmorin Cup at the French Lady Junior Championship. She is a past winner of the Scottish U16 open stroke play title.   Leading final scores Par 222 (3 x 74) CSS 80 79 77 233 Emily Taylor (ENG) 85 72 76 236 Mary Dowling (New Ross) 81 79 76 Gillian O’Leary (Cork) 79 77 80 238 Lisa Maguire (Slieve Russell) 81 79 78 239 Deirdre Smith (Co.

This time Ronaldo Souza will look to be more Thiago Santos and less Luke Rockhold when he challenges Jan Blachowicz in Jacare’s native Brazil. The duo is all set for the Light Heavyweight main event seizing the limelight and keeping their fans up from their seats. Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza, a veteran in the UFC roster, has very strong control on the mat and John might have a tough time grappling him. At 40, he is an explosive athlete however what causes the slightest tension for the fans is that despite his strong calves, he might be giving up a substantial amount of reach to Blachowicz, who is only one inch taller and has a 78” reach compared to Jacare’s 72”.Jan “John” Błachowicz, on the other hand, might not have physical strength at bay but is known to take over with his strong mental game, which has always rendered the opponent unconscious around the fence. However, the fight is predicted to be very simple and if Jacare can get Blachowicz down then there’s every chance he can get him out of there with a submission, as well.Light Heavyweight Title Bout (Main Event) – Maurício Rua and Paul CraigThe co-main event this week is a reminder of the abode of talent that exists in the Light Heavyweight with the incredible opening act with Maurício Rua and Paul Craig.Keeping his boat afloat this year after that violent knockout by Anthony Smith, Maurício “Shogun” Rua is back this weekend to face Paul “Bearjew” Craig. Craig is almost everyone’s favorite all over the world right now. He may not the best athlete or isn’t as skilled but has got to this level due to sheer hard work and dedication. He’s not terrible from the clinch to be fair, but against some of the more explosive 205lbers, he always has a tough time as he struggles to grapple.Shogun, on the other hand, is a BJJ black belt and a skilled grappler and is known to steer his opponents away by reminding them of his incredibly hard punches. Amongst these two, Craig might have some success early on by clinching with Shogun, but we really doubt his strength and stamina to combat the heat that Shogun’s going to throw at him. Of course, Shogun’s power and finishing instincts undoubtedly remain intact. Advertisementlast_img read more
