There was a double English triumph in the ladies’ game over the weekend, too.

Firstly, Annabel Dimmock won her first Ladies European Tour title, holding off amateur Pauline Roussin Bouchard to claim the Jabra Ladies Open in France.

For 24-year-old Law, who enjoyed a success-rich amateur career before jumping to the pro ranks in 2016, the win made amends for the disappointment of losing in a play-off at the Mediheal Championship just three weeks earlier.

“I guess after San Fran it really gave me perspective that I can compete at the top,” said Law, who held off Canada’s Brooke Henderson, Madelene Sagstrom of Sweden, and Japan’s Nasa Hataoka to take the title.

Dimmock was just as thrilled by her own breakthrough win.

“It’s such a relief,” said the 22-year-old from Buckinghamshire. “I’ve wanted to do this for so long and I’m so relieved I’ve finally won. I’ve been struggling a bit since I turned pro so to finally get a win is really special.”
