Diane Bailey MBE says she is ‘delighted’ to be nominated as the next President of the Ladies Golf Union.
Bailey will succeed current president, Brigid McCaw, when her term of office expires at the Annual General Meeting February 2015.
After a distinguished amateur career, she served as Curtis Cup captain and lead her players to the first ever victory on American soil for any Great Britain and Ireland team, male or female, amateur or professional, in Kansas in 1986.
“I am honoured and so delighted to have been invited to become president of the Ladies’ Golf Union,” said Bailey.
“Golf has always been such an important part of my life and to be given this great opportunity to represent and support women’s golf and the Ladies’ Golf Union is an enormous privilege.”
