English Seniors Strokeplay 2018

HelenTrophy18Helen Lowe of Scraptoft GC won her second national title at Belton Park, playing in strong winds. The competition was played from 19th to 21st June 2018. Helen overcame a six shot deficit going into the final round, playing steady golf, to finish with a 1 under par round of 74 and put together 3 decent rounds of 79,75,and 74. Although her confidence wasn’t high going into this tournament, recent lessons have helped and, while others faltered, Helen kept her calm and won by 4 shots from new Midland Vet Tracey Williamson of Royal Cromer. Tracey led after day 1 with the best score of the tournament of -2. However she struggled with the wind on day 2 and was blown off the course, finishing with a birdie to secure second place overall.

The Midland Vets also saw 2 other prize winners in the age group categories.
50-54 Julie Brown of Trentham
55-59 Sue Spencer of Whittington Heath.
