Davies hopes for return to form next year

Europe's best-ever player Laura Davies is determined to make the 2003 season a more successful one than it's forerunner, during which the usually prolific Englishwoman won just one title.

Davies' astonishing career has seen her win 64 titles around the world ever since bursting onto the stage with two major championship victories in her second year as a professional.

And Davies wants to rediscover the form that saw her win an MBE in 1988 for her already hugely impressive CV followed by a CBE two years later.

"After the years of success I was disappointed," she told the Associated Press.

"It was a consistent year but it wasn't really, really good.

"There was always something wrong. First my driving, then I had problems with my chipping and then my putting went in the middle of the year."

"For me a good year is four wins and a bad year is three wins. I usually reckon to win one tournament in about eight.

"If you can be winning better than one in 10 you are playing to a high standard and that's what I've always done in the past, but this year it has been one in 32 and I want to put that right."

The 39-year-old Davies believes, who leaves on January 27 for a skins competition in Hawaii before traveling to Australia for three tournaments.

"They are very important because they count for the Solheim Cup so I want to come out of the traps pretty quickly."

America is Davies' next stop, and she is upbeat about her chances.

"Absolutely. I wouldn't bother packing if I couldn't turn it round," she added.
