Treble chance for Boulden.

AMY Boulden attempts next week to complete an unprecedented treble when she lines up at Prestwick on Scotland's West coast in the British Ladies Open Amateur Championship.

The 20-year-old Curtis Cup star and professional's daughter from Conwy won the Welsh Open strokeplay Championship back in May and then last week became the first Welsh victor of the English ladies Open Strokeplay title at Mannings Heath in West Sussex, clinching it on the first hole of a sudden-death play-off.

Now she has the chance of another first on one of Britain's oldest courses.

Apart from failing to win the Welsh matchplay crown, Boulden has enjoyed a good year and is relishing the prospect of tackling Prestwick links.

"I have been playing well lately and to complete the treble would be the icing on the cake, and then there's the challenge of the Home Internationals with Wales," she said. There is a healthy contingent of Welsh players in the 100-strong field with Haverfordwest-based National champion Becky Harries hoping to produce another inspirational performance, while former Monmouthshire champion Jessica Evans and Katie Bradbury are among the others in the 72-hole contest.
