Amanda Mayne

Somerset champion Amanda Mayne has become the second player to be crowned as the English Senior Women’s County Champion of Champions.

She followed in the footsteps of inaugural champion Alison Kelly from Gloucestershire after carding two rounds of 79 to claim a three-shot victory on 12-over par 158 at this year’s event at Woodhall Spa in Lincolnshire.

Mayne’s nearest rival was Kent’s Kim Morris who opened with an 82 but then fired a closing 79 to finish alone in second place on 161. 2018 champion Kelly was third on the defence of her title after posting an 80 and an 83 while first round leader Janet Melville from Lancashire dropped down to a share of fourth place with Norfolk’s Tracey Williamson after adding an 87 to her opening round of 77. Williamson carded two rounds of 82.

Mayne’s victory came 12 months after finishing tied fifth seven shots behind Kelly at the inaugural Senior Women’s County Champion of Champions event over the Green course at Frilford Heath. Melville was tied-seventh at that event.
