Now, she’s won her first event of the new academic year taking the individual honours in the Mary Fossum Invitational, hosted by Michigan State.

Meghan was in third place at the start of the final round and shot a third round score of 74. It gave her a tournament score of five-over par and a one stroke victory.

She commented afterwards on Twitter: “Another stressful day but happy to have won my first college tournament back in America! Ready for a good year.”  Her previous US successes were in 2013 and 2012.

Meghan, an England international from Wellinborough, stormed through the field to win her British title, sealing her triumph the day before she returned to the USA. She played the final two rounds in nine-under par and won by a stroke at Ashburnham in Wales.
