Nicola wins Race for NJCA title

at Daytona Beach, Florida

Essex golfer Nicola Race capped her first year on the US women’s college circuit by winning a national title. The 19-year-old, from Witham in Essex, became National Junior College Champion on the LPGA Legends Course, Daytona Beach, Florida.
Nicola was a wire-to-wire winner in the tournament, which was reduced to 54 holes because of bush fires.
She also helped Redlands Community College in El Reno, Oklahoma to win the team trophy. Nicola, who hopes to become a teaching or tour professional, has been celebrating her successes on a trip home and remarked: “I am very pleased with my win, it's been hard work but I really love playing golf seven days a week on lots of different courses. It’s just a dream come true.”
Before Nicola started her university career she was a member at Chelmsford Golf Club and trained with the English Women’s Golf Association’s Select South East Squad.
