Lady European Tour professional Hailey Davis has won the Rohampton Ladies Open Gold Challenge Cup for the second time in her career after shooting a record low score for the 36-hole event.
Davis of Ferndown Golf Club, Dorset, created the perfect playing conditions for a total of 137 runs in seven-under-par in 68 and 69 rounds at the great Parkland Course in Rohampton.
When he won the title jointly in 2018, Davis had to share the title with Ince Mehmet of the row, but he was a class different in this year’s renewal, including six shots from professional Emily Slater, who was the only other player. Jema Kluse was fourth in one over, equaling Sarah G in third to finish under the finish.
There were 32 amateurs on the 50-strong field, 15-year-old Matilda Santili of Foxhills, a member of the England South Regional team, finishing fifth as the top amateur with great rounds of 74 and 72. Parkstone’s Alice Webb is the next best amateur in eighth place in four overs.
Luke Thompson of Bedfordshire won the Gold Rose Trophy for the best top finishing at the Hampshire Rose, which he won last week at the North Hunts and the Rohampton Gold Cup, where he finished 10th with a score of +5. He was presented with the Gold Rose Trophy, a gift from Justin Rose, a member of the Northern Hunt and a worldwide golf star.
