“It was exciting to get my 2023 season underway last week in Kenya on the Ladies European Tour. After a long break away it was great to test my game in competition again. I enjoyed being back competing which was a brilliant sign for me after some mental struggles throughout last year. It was a very challenging course, demanding off the tee and extremely windy. I look forward to playing more events to prepare for the Carlisle Classic.”
