Ladies Star on Saturday at the GolfSixes

England Women and European Women both made it through to the last eight at the GolfSixes after a historic day at Centurion Club.

The European Tour broke new ground yet again at the innovative event, with men’s, women’s and mixed teams all taking part in a format which saw 16 pairs take each other on in greensomes match play over six holes in a round robin, with the top two teams in each group of four advancing to Sunday’s quarter-finals.

The European Women pair of Carlota Ciganda and Mel Reid overcame defending champions Denmark in a playoff to finish second in Group A behind Thailand, with Georgia Hall and Charley Hull soon following them into the knockout stages.

After a draw against England Men and a victory over South Africa, the England Women duo lost their final match 2-1 against Sweden but finished above Alexander Björk and Joakim Lagergren on holes won.

That left them second in Group D behind their male counterparts and they will next face Ireland who won Group C, with England Men facing Group C runners-up France.
