It was a big day for Minchinhampton member Jane Rees at the English Senior Women’s Stroke Play Championship.

Not only was she the overall winner, but she also gained a scratch handicap for the first time in her illustrious career.

Her three rounds of 71, 69 and 68 meant the Gloucestershire golfer finished two-under par with a six-shot victory.

Then, coming up behind her as runners up were Laura Webb from East Berkshire and Kate Evans from host-venue Frilford Heath in Oxfordshire.

Welsh international player Rees has previously won six Welsh Seniors titles, and also gained a whole host of awards and achievements throughout her golfing years.

She said:

“First time ever down to scratch at the grand old age of 62! I’m delighted with that.

“It feels very good to win and I’m quite excited.”

Meanwhile, Tracey Williamson of Royal Cromer also had a round to remember by scoring a hole-in-one on the 1st hole of the final round.

It was her fourth in her career and the second to happen in an England Golf tournament.

It therefore shouldn’t have come as a surprise for us to discover that she’s the mother of England squad player and Rose Ladies Series competitor Amelia-Jane Williamson.

What a wonderful golfing family!

Congratulations Jane and Tracey.
