South West win for Sarah-Jane

Sarah-Jane Boyd

Cornwall’s Sarah-Jane Boyd won the South West women’s championship at Yeovil Golf Club when she beat Somerset’s Becky Gibbs in the final.

Sarah-Jane, from Truro, is also the Cornwall champion.  Meanwhile, Georgia Price (Bude) scored a double for Cornwall when she won the second flight trophy.

The championship was threatened beforehand by very bad weather but head greenkeeper James Last and his team succeeded in presenting the course in fine condition. During the event there was torrential rain on the second day but squeegees were used to keep the greens playable.
