It might have been the final day of the 147th Open Championship at Carnoustie last Sunday but Barton on Sea links course invited the creme de la creme of Hampshire girl golfers for their annual Championship.

A slight breeze in the morning challenged some of the girls and with a lot of run on the ball it was easy to find the occasional bunker or long rough. At the half way point Ellen recorded a strong nett 70, and lay in 2nd place, by just 1 shot. 

However with another 18 to go anything could happen. As anticipated, the breeze did pick up in the afternoon making conditions quite different and arguably trickier.

Ellen clawed back the 1 shot deficit to lift the trophy with a nett 75 & a combined 145.  

Ellen is a member of the U18 Hampshire Performance Team and is under the tutelage of BOSGC Head Pro - Pete Rodgers.
