Lisburn’s Paula Grant did her Curtis Cup selection hopes no harm when she qualified for the matchplay stages of the Spanish Ladies' Amateur Championship at Barceló Montecastillo Golf in Jerez de la Frontera.

Just one qualifying round was possible after high winds and torrential rain forced several suspensions in play over the two days.

Wednesday's four-over 76 was enough for the Irish champion to qualify in 15th place, tied for seventh, as defending champion Frida Kinhult from Sweden topped the 32 qualifiers by four strokes after a 71.

Killarney's Valerie Clancy and Lurgan's Annabel Wilson made the top 32 it in 30th and 31st respectively after 79s, but Castlewarden's Lauren Walsh (80) and Milltown's Georgia Carr (88) missed out while Hermitage's Ciara Casey retired.

Grant will face Sweden's Beatrice Wallin in round one and could then face leading qualifier Kinhult in the afternoon if she wins and the Swede beats her talented compatriot Linn Grant, the Ladies British Open Amateur Stroke Play champion.

Valerie Clancy, who faces Lou Vrain for France on Friday morning, could meet her Irish teammate Grant in the semi-finals but Annabel Wilson is in the bottom half of the draw and will take on the Dane Sofie Kibsgaard in round one.
