England came on top in the European Ladies’ Amateur Team Championship 2016 in Iceland after a thrilling final match against Spain at Oddur Golf Club. The teams split the points in the morning foursomes. The game was up for grabs in the afternoon singles.
England soon got the upper hand and got the lead in first two matches. Spain battled until the end but the game was decided on the 18th green in exciting match between Bronte Law of England and Ainhoa Olarra of Spain.
Law was 1 up heading up the 18th and saved an excellent par. Olarra had the chance to extend the match to extra holes with a birdie on the last but her putt came up short. The England players celebrated victory in a thrilling final match at Oddur Golf Club, 4 – 3.
Germany came 3rd in the Championship after a win over Switzerland, 4,5 – 2,5.
