Retains British golf title

Here’s a photo from the sports section of the June 4 1932 edition of the Toronto Daily Star:

The British women’s golf championship (then known as the British Ladies Amateur) has come up in this blog recently. The 1932 championship was held at the Saunton Golf Club, which was founded in 1897 and still exists.

Enid Wilson (1910-1996) went on to win the championship for a third straight year in 1933. She later wrote about women’s golf in England.

Clem Purvis-Russell-Montgomery had rather a lengthy surname. I found her here (I think) in a listing of members of the British peerage. Her full name was Clementina Helen Maud Purvis-Russell-Montgomery, and her father, the 7th Montgomery baronet, went through life with the full name of Henry James Purvis-Russell-Hamilton-Montgomery.
