Northamptonshire’s Gillian

Curley storms to senior success

Northamptonshire’s Gillian Curley defied strong winds and heavy rain to score a seven-shot victory in the 36-hole senior English women’s North regional tournament at Malton & Norton, Yorkshire.
She put together two steady rounds of 76 to pull off her second victory in three years on the seniors’ circuit.
“The weather was horrible but I just set out to play it one hole at a time – and I putted very well! I seemed to get the measure of the greens and on both days I holed a couple of long putts.” As an additional bonus, Gillian, who plays at Northamptonshire County, has cut her handicap from five to four.
Gillian is a great supporter of EWGA’s seniors’ events. “It’s wonderful to be able to play competitive golf at a good level with like-minded people. These are really good events and it’s absolutely great that they are well organised and well run.”
Meanwhile, Fiona Southern of Bamburgh Castle, Northumberland, had a hole in one in the first round on the 127-yard 13th.
