Dorset’s Hannah Bews wins US college title
Dorset’s Hannah Bews has won her first tournament on the US women’s college circuit with a two-stroke victory in her conference championship.
The 20-year-old becomes the third English player to win a 2008 conference title, alongside English strokeplay champion Jodi Ewart from Yorkshire and Laura Cutler from Essex.
Hannah, who plays at Broadstone, is a second year student at Portland State University, Oregon, and her play in the championship also helped her college to win the Big Sky Conference team title.
After her win, at Foothills Golf Club, Hannah phoned her family at home in Ringwood, Hampshire, to find them following live scoring on a computer.
It told them that she’d birdied the last hole for a two-stroke win in both the individual and team titles. The deciding shot was a 140-yard, downwind approach which Hannah played to within a foot of the hole
Her final round of level par 72 was a career best and during the tournament she posted nine birdies over three days and finished at four-over par with 73-75-72=220.
“We all played really good," said Hannah. "We've been working toward it all season and just waiting for something like this to happen.”
Hannah is a former county schools champion and has represented England in a schools’ international. She is a past member of an English Women’s Golf Association regional training squad.
English girls’ champion Ellie Givens (Blackwell Grange, Durham) was ninth in the Sun Belt Conference college championship at Shoals Golf Club in Alabama.
Ellie, 19 and a first-year student at the University of Denver, shared fourth place with a round to go but fell away with a closing 79. However, she was on the winning side because her college captured the team title by 42 shots.
