Congratulations to Aileen Greenfield of Pyecombe. Runner up at the County Championships a few weeks ago, her great form has continued this week at the Senior Open Stroke Play Championship which has been played over three days at Broadstone in Dorset.
Going into the final day, Aileen was tied in 3rd place just a couple of shots off the lead. Her fantastic round of 74 today (CSS 73) meant she was tied in first place with Lulu Houseman (Wyke Green) on 229. She then faced a sudden death play off, and was unfortunately just pipped at the post. Well done Aileen, brilliant golf all week 78/76/75, an honour to be runner up competing against many of the best senior golfers in the country in her first year of eligibility. Katherine Russell (Royal Ashdown Forest) finished in 9th place – we look forward to seeing you both at County Match Week next week ladies!
