Liz Young is hoping to make a splash in the Women’s British Open for the second year running, after qualifying for the 2014 edition of the major championship.

The Brokenhurst Manor ace made it through final qualifying at Southport & Ainsdale on Monday, and will now tee it up at Royal Birkdale tomorrow.

Young earned a place in the same tournament last year, making an instant impact at St Andrews with an opening-round 68 that put her just two off the lead.

She ended up making the cut, before finishing in a tie for 63rd, and she is hoping for even better this time around.

“My aim is to make the cut and move up the field,” said Young, whose husband, Jon, will caddy for her. “I know I’m as good as the other players here.

“I’ve just got to keep patient and say to myself ‘You’re good enough’. I showed that last year and I feel my game is better now.”

Young, 31, added: “It’s the British Open, it’s our home major. You want to do well, but you want to enjoy the experience and soak up the atmosphere as well.

“The best players in the world are taking part, and I’m lucky enough to be one of the people up here.”
