Lily May Humphreys has become the third event winner within the 2023 Rose Ladies Series, supported by Europe’s leading golf retailer, American Golf.

A member of Royal Norwich Golf Club, Lily, 21, took home a first prize sum of £10k at Wentworth (East) Golf Club, Surrey after achieving a superb bogey free 67 to win by 4 and the only participant to shoot under par on the Championship golf course.

The Rose Ladies Series was founded and funded by Justin Rose MBE, former number one, and Major champion along with his wife Kate Rose in 2020. Created with the intention of plugging the gaps that had been left from the cancelled Ladies European Tour tournaments, the prize money contributed by the Roses was matched by American Golf and Computacenter UK as title sponsors.

Now in its fourth year, The Rose Ladies Series has become an exciting fixture on the women’s professional circuit, providing an excellent opportunity for female pros and high-ranking amateurs to compete, hone and showcase their talent as the Ladies European Tour ramps up.

Lily May made her professional debut in June 2022 on the LET and then played a full season on the LET Access Series winning the Order of Merit and Rookie of the Year titles.

Lily said: “It gives me great confidence to win this Rose Ladies Series event title, as it shows that my work’s paying off and that I’m concentrating on the right things.

“I took up golf because I enjoyed the atmosphere on and off the course with people that I really like and look up to. I’m also very competitive, which made me keep coming back because in golf there’s always something you can improve upon and work towards in terms of the next big title. I hope more young females are inspired to take up golf and realise what a fantastic career it can afford them too.”

Scott Taylor, Marketing Director, American Golf said: “We are delighted that Lily has become the 2023 Rose Ladies Series third event winner. As the title sponsor for the fourth year running, American Golf is proud to back this inspirational tournament which aligns perfectly with our own values.

“Promoting and supporting gender inclusivity within golf by providing additional opportunities for female golfers to showcase their talent is vital to breaking down player barriers and increasing player participation. The American Golf team wishes Lily all the very best for the rest of the season.”

The 2023 Rose Ladies Series includes two more events as follows: Bearwood Lakes Golf Club (Tuesday April 25th) and The Grove (Tuesday May 2nd). The Rose Ladies Open will also return to Brocket Hall in Hertfordshire 7th-9th September 2023.
