Florentyna said: “I am really excited about playing in the Ricoh Women’s British Open this year. It was great playing it last year to gain experience but with it being held at my home club this year it is even more special.”

“I think my main home advantage will be the support from my friends at The Royal Birkdale Golf Club who have always been so encouraging of my golfing aspirations” she said. “My mother’s family are from the Birkdale area and my grandparents still live there so I know I will have plenty support”

Robert Russell, Captain of The Royal Birkdale Golf Club, added, “We are very proud of Florentyna and really looking forward to seeing her play this summer in the Ricoh Women’s British Open.”

Florentyna will be up against some formidable competition in the competition. The world’s top 10 women have already confirmed their entries to this year’s tournament, along with reigning champion, Catriona Matthew.
