It was an England one, two, three in the Fairhaven Trophy with Sadie Adams taking the title in the girls competition

The Fairhaven Trophy took place on May 3-5. The 72-hole Stroke Play Championship sees competitors in both the girls and boys competitions compete across three days with the leading 40 competitors and ties playing a further 36 holes after the 36 hole cut.

In the Fairhaven Trophy girls’ event, Sadie Adams (Royal Birkdale) battled brilliantly to shoot level-par over the course of four rounds at Fairhaven Golf Club to finish one shot ahead of fellow England player Ellie Lichtenhein (Buckinghamshire), with Chloe Tarbard (Royal Norwich) finishing in 3rd place.

Adams said: "I knew it was tight heading into the final round and I was thinking to try and go low again after my -4 in the morning. I was three-under through eight but bogeyed six of the next eight holes!"

However, she kept her composure to birdie the final two holes and added:

"I just kept telling myself that I was hitting it well and if I could birdie a couple of holes I'd have a chance. I birdied the 18th and after putting my score in, I headed to the practice green expecting a play-off, but someone came over to tell me I'd won and it was quite a shock.

"I really needed a win and, this early in the season, it certainly helps my confidence and shows that I can do it. My parents were there to celebrate with me - my mum was crying! We ended up just coming home for a quiet night as it was a long weekend!"

In the boys’ event, Carl Moller from Sweden topped the leaderboard at five-under-par, with fellow Swede Edwin Askerfors in second place just one shot behind. England's Jake Potter (Chelsfield Lakes) finished in third at one-under-par.
