Alex Peters from Shifnal, Shropshire has won the Roehampton Gold Cup at The Roehampton Club in south-west London.
The 22-year-old European Tour professional put together rounds of 71 & 70 to win on her first outing at the event.
Peters beat a high class international field which assembled to tackle the parkland course with its well-guarded greens. As well as home England players, others came from Wales, Scotland and for the first time, from Belgium and the USA. All would feature in the prizes. Two Roehampton players were in the field – sisters Samantha and Annabell Fuller – the latter having come a very close second in the recent Scottish Under 16 Championship.
Second was Jessica Bradley, professional from Tiverton, on 145 (74,71) together with Belgian professional from Ypres, Laurence Herman, also on 145 (71,74). Kent player Sharna Dutrieux from Wrotham Heath was leading amateur on 147 (71,76). The 2015 winner Hannah Ralph, professional from Cowdray Park, put up a good defence of her title on 148 (76,72) – five shots lower than her winning score last year. The low round of the day went to Wales and Surrey amateur Katherine O’Connor from West Byfleet with a record three under par 69 in the afternoon.
