Rose Ladies Series: Cowley scoops top prize at JCB Club

Former England international Gabriella Cowley dug in for the victory at the JCB Golf and Country Club.

But once again there was another fine showing from the lone amateur in the field at the sixth event in the Rose Ladies Series – the 2016  English Women’s Stroke Play champion Emily Price.

Cowley’s round of 70 for a two-under par finish saw her enjoy a slender one shot winning margin over no fewer than six of her nearest rivals including Georgia Hall and Charley Hull.

Amateur Price (pictured below) can take some pride from her round of 74 which saw the Kent State University student finish in 15th place.

The Ludlow Golf Club member got off to a flying start with a birdie at the opening hole.

Bogeys at the fifth and eighth halted her charge, but another birdie at the par three, ninth hole allowed her to reach the turn in a level par total of 36.

A tough back nine for Price started with two bogeys at 10 and 11.

However, another birdie at the 12th, a run of five pars and a dropped shot at the last allowed her to sign for a score of two-over par.
