England international Meghan MacLaren continued her remarkable US college career with her eighth win on the women’s circuit.
She won the Conference USA women’s championship for the second year in a row and the third time in total. The 21-year-old, from Wellingborough in Northamptonshire, scored three-under par at the Verandah Club in Fort Myers, Florida, and was two clear of the field.
She’s only the second student at Florida International University to win the title back to back and be a three-time individual conference champion.

MacLaren is a past winner of the British and Irish stroke play titles and was eighth in the 2016 South American amateur. She is an England and GB&I international and represented Europe in this season’s inaugural Patsy Hankins Trophy against Asia Pacific. She is a member of the England Golf women's squad.
