Teenage pair shine at WPGA event

first_img Two teenage players from England Golf squads led the amateur challenge at the latest event on the WPGA One Day Series when they tied for second place. Cloe Frankish (image © Leaderboard Photography), 15, from Chart Hills in Kent, and Aimee Wilson, 18, from Mickleover in Derbyshire, both scored two-under 72 at Little Aston. They were in a three-way tie for second place and finished two shots behind the winner, Jo Hodge of Hamptworth in Wiltshire. A third squad player, Megan Clarke of Cleckheaton & District in Yorkshire, also finished in the top six with a score of one-over par. The WPGA has opened up entry to its popular One Day Series to U16 and U18 girls from England Golf’s regional squads to give them the chance to develop their skills in a tournament arena. This was the second event in the series and both have showcased the skills of the emerging amateurs, after Bel Wardle of Cheshire was joint runner-up in the first tournament. Rebecca Wood, the England Golf Women’s Performance Manager, said: “This was another fantastic outcome for the England Golf programme. I cannot highlight enough what a great experience this is for the players to add to their development journeys and I hope more players sign up for the remaining events.” Aimee Wilson, who trains with the West Midlands U18 squad and is the Derbyshire champion, was playing in her first pro event and confessed to shaking beforehand! But her father – and caddy – Mark, said: “She played absolutely fantastic, I was really proud of her, and she really enjoyed the experience. She was very happy.” She had four birdies in her round and came home in one-under par, with immaculate play which resulted in a birdie on the 10th and eight straight pars to finish with. Cloe Frankish, who trains with the South East U16 squad, was playing in her second One Day event and her mum, Claire, commented: “She really enjoyed it and it’s given her such a big confidence boost.” She was giving a new putter its first outing during the competition and was rewarded with an excellent performance on the greens, including holing at least one 30-footer. Altogether she amassed five birdies in her round. Click here for the full scores 21 May 2014 Teenage pair shine at WPGA event last_img read more

Russian Doll season 2 could be a death too far

first_img Aw yeeeeah… SEASON 2, witches!!!🖤 #RussianDoll pic.twitter.com/HpqONBcaXI— Joanna DeVoe (@JoannaDeVoe) June 11, 2019 russian doll renewed for season 2? I mean I’m excited because I loved it but I’m scared because the story seemed so complete….— ✍️ (@miccaeli) June 11, 2019 REALITY IS RELATIVE BUT AS MUCH AS ANYTHING CAN BE REAL YES THIS IS FOR REAL— Russian Doll (@RussianDoll) June 11, 2019 Time is a construct.— Russian Doll (@RussianDoll) June 11, 2019 50 Photos Season 1 should break open and have Season 2 inside https://t.co/AD9T17CIS1— Scott Stein (@jetscott) June 11, 2019 Just rewatch season 1.— Charles Wagen (@CharlesWagen) June 11, 2019 Share your voice Not just a time looper, the show’s mind bending aspect is seen as one of its assets. So what happens if you explain too much? Russian Doll is a show about, unsurprisingly, layers. It peeled them away to reveal the key to our hero Nadia’s predicament: understanding her relationship with her mother. It turns out letting go of the past really can set you free — from perpetual time loops of death. Tags Post a commentcenter_img Or you could do this. TV and Movies I don’t know how this is going to work, but I didn’t think Happy Death Day could have a sequel and it did, so sign me up.— Ciarán West (@CiaranWest) June 11, 2019 We’re also searching for answers. Netflix Netflix has renewed Russian Doll for a second season. This is a show about a woman who dies, repeatedly. It’s a bit like Groundhog Day, but instead of Bill Murray, there’s a metaphorical prison dictating the boundaries of a sentient being’s existence. Oh, and there’s an adorable cat named Oatmeal. Spoiler: He’s also a metaphor!Yes, this is a show that makes you think. It’s also been a critical success for talented creative team Natasha Lyonne, Amy Poehler and Leslye Headland. However, following surprise, reactions to the news of a second season have been mixed. Amid those setting off the elated emoji fireworks, some have raised only their eyebrows. What will season 2 bring? All we and @CiaranWest can do is have optimism. 2019 TV shows you can’t miss 0 Casting doubts aside for a second, let’s enjoy the official Russian Doll’s twitter account responding to excited fans. I loved the show but I see this as being a show that might be ruined by extra seasons. Explaining too much might turn into a midichlorian situation.— Mundane Simpsons (@MundaneSimpsons) June 11, 2019 Nadia literally dies on her way to answers, and that’s not to mention the drinking, smoking and self-loathing in New York. But she does make it out of the darkness. She confronts her inner demons, moves forward and helps others. So what fresh new time loop can Netflix possibly trap her in?If Netflix won’t give us answers, let’s head to a place that will.
