Welwyn Garden City golfer Hannah Burke will team up with Holly Clyburn for the next Ladies European Tour event, the Mission Hills World Ladies Championship in China.

The tournament at the Blackstone Course at Mission Hills Haikou, on the island of Hainan, from March 6-9 is unique.

It consists of three events in one - an individual professional competition, a professional team championship in which countries are represented by teams of two, and an individual amateur tournament, all played simultaneously over 72-holes of stroke play.

The new team for England sees last year’s rookie and Deloitte Ladies Open champion Clyburn team-up with third year LET member Burke.

Both have made strong starts to the 2014 season, Clyburn with a tie for 23rd at the ISPS HANDA Women’s Australian Open and Burke with a tie for 28th in the same championship against one of the world’s strongest tournament fields.
