DORSET'S DAVIS WINS GIRLS NATIONAL GOLF TITLE

english women's golf association logoDorset’s Hayley Davis shot a stunning six-under par 66 to win the 2011 English girls’ golf championship by eight shots at Ellesborough in Buckinghamshire.

Her final round included back-to-back eagles and the Ferndown golfer signed off with a crowd-pleaser, rolling an impressive birdie putt in at the last.

It gave the teenage England international a 72-hole total of three-under par 285 and clear victory in an event she led from start to finish.

The runner-up was Yorkshire’s Sophie Godley while Dorset's Georgia Hall and Cheshire’s Bronte Law tied for third place. 

Davis soon leaves junior ranks and her win girls under 18 national title completes a double, following her success in last year’s English women’s amateur championship.

Davis leaves for the USA later this month to take up a scholarship at Baylor University, Texas. Before flying out Davis is set to play in the Girls’ Home Internationals next week and the British girls’ golf championship.

Dorset's Sophie Keech finished fourth in the girls under 15 championship at Mentmore, where county team-mate Kyra Horlock was also among the top 10.
