BROCKET Hall golfer Charlie Douglass just failed to make the matchplay stages of the French Lady Junior Championship at St Cloud over the Easter period.

She finished 39th after two rounds of strokeplay qualifying to miss the cut.

Only the top 32 players went through to the matchplay stages and Douglass' 11 over par 153 total was one shot too many.

Four players were tied on 10 over and one went through to the knockout rounds in 32nd place.

Charlie was one of six players who finished on 11 over.

Competing in the event as part of an English Women's Golf Association squad, Douglass was nine shots off the pace after the first 18 holes.

She returned an opening round 76 at St Cloud to trail Germany's Lara Katzy, who shot a four under par 67.

The Herts county player bogeyed the first hole but claimed birdies at the second, fourth and sixth holes.

Dropped shots at eight, nine and 10, where she had a double-bogey, as well as at 14, 16 and 18 left her five over after the first day.

Douglass finished the second day in a six-way tie for 30th place on 11 over par 153 after a 77, which included just one birdie, again at the short par 3 sixth.

However, the second qualifying round on Good Friday was delayed by rain for two hours and almost 20 players were still out on course at the close of the day's play.

They returned to the course on the Saturday morning with only the top 32 players going forward to the matchplay stages and Douglass unfortunately missed out in 39th place overall.
