Somerset’s Amanda Mayne has warmed up with a win in advance of her debut for England in the senior women’s Home Internationals.

Amanda, from Saltford, took the honours in the senior English women’s South regional strokeplay tournament at Teignmouth, Devon.

She won on countback from fellow England senior international Roz Adams (Addington Court Ladies) and their Welsh counterpart, Jane Rees (Hendon). All three had tied on three-over par 76, but Amanda won by virtue of her better back nine, which she covered in level par.

The second round of the tournament was washed out by torrential rain which flooded the greens.

Amanda, who is playing her first season of senior golf, has been selected for the England team for the Senior Home Internationals at Elie, Scotland, from 2-4 October. She is a past Somerset captain and champion.
