The Ladies Champion !!!!!

20 July 2016

Millie had a fabulous day yesterday competing in the Bramley Ladies Golf Championship. She was allowed off school for the day and together with two other juniors played against 50 other ladies in 33 degrees of heat. The competition was originally set for 36 holes but because the extreme temperatures they shortened it to 27 holes.

Millie played beautifully and was leading after 18 and then played well again over the last nine-holes in the afternoon, and ended up winning! Her friend Daisy came second and when it came time for the prize giving the Junior Organiser felt that it would perhaps cause some problems if two juniors off of high handicaps walked away with all the prizes, so Millie and Daisy were taken out of the main draw and given some vouchers for the Pro Shop instead. Millie was upset about not getting her name on the board in the Club House that dates back to 1913, as well as the trophy, but she took it all with grace and is incredibly proud of her accomplishment.

Millie started the day at 34.1 and played so well that she was cut to 25.7 over just 27-holes! Anyone who plays golf knows that that is a serious day’s work! She would have won even if she played off of 25 for the day but she’ll be back for another attempt next year. Bravo Millie and your Mum and I are extremely proud of you! (see photos)
