The 120th Women’s Amateur Championship will feature three of the world’s top ten, as the new rankings leader is set to front a strong field for the historic event.

Ingrid Lindblad is the highest-ranked of the 144 players competing at Prince’s between June 13-18, while the Swede is one of 12 inside the top 50 who will play on the Kent coast.

The 23-year-old took the top spot from Rose Zhang following the updated Women’s Amateur Golf Rankings (WAGR).

She said: “I’m excited to be back playing The Women’s Amateur. I’ve been hitting the ball well lately, so I’m ready to go play.

“I’ve had a great experience in the last few years of this championship and I’m looking forward to another one.

“It’s a long week, so it’s important to be rested for the match play. I feel like my links experience from both The Women’s Amateur and the European Team Championship will put me in a good
position for this year.”

The world’s best female amateurs will take part in 36 holes of stroke play across the opening two days before the remaining 64 players and ties will battle it out in match play.

One of the leading championships in women’s amateur golf, the event will make its first appearance at Prince’s.

The former Open venue, which has co-hosted the Amateur Championship twice, will host the longstanding women’s championship over its Shore and Dunes loops.

The third-ranked player, Spain’s Cayetana Fernandez Garcia-Poggio, and Scotland’s Hannah Darling ranked ninth, help mark a star-studded championship.
