Helen tames winds for second senior title

Senior international Helen Lowe overcame a six-shot deficit – and strong winds - to win her second national championship. 
She claimed the English senior stroke play title with an impressive final round of one-over par at Belton Park Golf Club in Lincolnshire. 
 
“I can’t believe I’ve done it, I really can’t,” said Lowe, from Scraptoft in Leicestershire. She won by four shots from Norfolk’s Tracey Williamson (Royal Cromer).
 
“This is tremendously important to me. It’s something you dream of and I don’t think I’ve won a stroke play event before. Putting three decent rounds together is quite an achievement!” 
 
Lowe wasn’t on top form as she approached the event, but some lessons did the trick. As 30mph winds challenged the contestants during rounds two and three, she produced steady play. “It was hard work playing off,” remarked Lowe, who won the English senior amateur championship in 2015. “I’ve been trying to get some rhythm going and get my confidence back – this should help!” 
 
After the first round Lowe was eight shots off the lead set by Tracey Williamson (Royal Cromer) who went round in two-under 71. Williamson was blown off course in round two and Yorkshire’s Karen Jobling moved to the top of the leaderboard, five ahead of the field and six ahead of Lowe. Jobling faded in the final day’s winds and had to settle for third place after Williamson birdied the last to secure the runners-up spot on her own. 
 
Defending champion Jackie Foster (Bishops Stortford) had been hoping to complete a hat trick of wins. She left herself too much to do in the final round, but still managed a top ten finish.
Belton Park's Anna Clarke finished in a tie for 17th, which was a fantastic achievement. Anna returned a final round of 86 to finish on +26 and if there had been a nett competition, she would have won it comfortably!
 
Leading final scores: 
228 Helen Lowe (Scraptoft) 
232 Tracey Williamson (Royal Cromer) 
233 Karen Jobling (Richmond, Yorks)

English Senior Womens Strokeplay Champs

After day 2 of the English Senior Womens Strokeplay Championships, the leader on +2 is Karen Jobling of Richmond (Yorks) Golf Club. Karen leads the field by 5 shots.

Belton Park's Anna Clark is tied for 13th with a 14 over par score of 160.

Play starts tomorrow at 8.30am with Anna teeing off at 10.40am and all support would be very welcome.

The club has received many plaudits during the week for the course, facilities and the friendly staff and members.
