The 10-year-old battled hard in the windy conditions at The Bedford Golf Club on Sunday as she compiled an excellent gross round of 87 to finish three ahead of Reuben Tennant (Worksop) in the Challenge Division.

Victory guarantees the youngster, whose older brother Manato finished third in the Elite Division, a place in the grand final on Sunday, May 14, at Magnolia Park GC in Oxfordshire.

And it wasn’t the only success for the club as Zak Rzymkowski won the net category in the Elite Division with an exceptional score of net 69. Second place was on 77.

In a competition that attracted a sold-out field of 78 players, the shot of the day came from Finn Dobson (The Leicestershire) as the 10-year-old carded a hole-in-one on the fourth hole.

His special reward was a signed photo from top European professional Charley Hull, with the wording ‘Welcome to the Ace Club’.

Round Two of British Junior Golf Tour’s Super Six Series takes place at Cambridge Meridian GC on Sunday, March 12.
