Stockport-born golfer Bronte Law will be in action today at the Gainbridge LPGA in Orlando, Florida. 

The tournament takes place at the Lake Nona Golf Club between 25-28 February. A full field of 120 players will take on the 72-hole course.

This weekend will be the Law’s second outing of the 2021 LPGA Tour after placing 14th at the Diamond Resorts Tournament in Florida in January.

The Diamond Resorts Tournament was won by American Jessica Korda, who has six career wins on the LPGA Tour and is also set to compete at Gainbridge.

Korda is part of the stacked field facing Bronte Law this weekend, which features six of the top seven players in the Rolex Women’s World Golf rankings, including world number one Jin Young Ko and number two Sei Young Kim

But the headline player of the tournament is Annika Sorenstam, who is returning to competition after officially retiring in 2008. Gainbridge is the first event back for the Swede, whose decorated career includes 10 major titles and 72 LPGA wins.

 Now in her fifth year as professional, Law has one career victory on the LPGA Tour, which she took in 2019 at the Pure Silk Championship.

She currently ranks 68th in the world, and will be looking for a good result in the coming days to start her 2021 campaign strongly and move up the leaderboard.

Fellow Brits Charley Hull, Mel Reid, Laura Davies and Georgia Hall are also playing over the weekend.

Law will tee off at 5.14pm UK time today.
