Former English women’s champion Kerry Smith won the Hampshire Rose for the third time with a two-under par score at North Hants Golf Club
Smith, from Waterlooville in Hampshire, previously won the Rose in 2001 and 2002, when she was a member of the Curtis Cup team.
This time she scored 73 71 in a strong north easterly wind. She was four shots clear of the field and saw off the challenge of four rivals who tied for second place: England Golf squad players Ebonie Lewis (Knowle) and Sharna Dutreux (Wrotham Heath), another Hampshire player, Georgie Mundy (Corhampton), and former England international Tara Watters (Muswell Hill), who won the Rose in 2011.
Kerry Smith won the English women’s amateur in 2004 and was an England international from 1997 to 2008. She has helped Hampshire to win the English women’s County Finals on four occasions.
