ELGA's Melissa Reid wins The Whittington Trophy



Derbyshire’s Curtis Cup star Melissa Reid won the Whittington Ladies’ Trophy for the third successive time – helped by equalling a new course record.

The 19-year-old England international from Chevin shot a second round 69 at Whittington Heath to secure her success over the highest quality field ever to enter the competition.

Melissa’s rivals included Naomi Edwards from Ganton in Yorkshire and Breanne Loucks from Wales who are both fellow Curtis Cup players and members of the GB team for the Commonwealth Tournament, which will be played in May.

Her afternoon score, which was three under par and four under CSS, equalled the new record set in the morning by English strokeplay champion Liz Bennett of Brokenhurst Manor. Liz was runner-up overall, one shot behind Melissa.

The competition also attracted the two youngest players ever to take part in the event: Elizabeth Mallet, 12, of Sutton Coldfield Ladies’, who has been playing two years and has a five handicap; and English U13 champion Alexandra Peters, 13, of Notts Ladies. They are both members of English Ladies’ Golf Association squads.

Leading scores. Par 72 CSS 73.
142 Melissa Reid (Chevin) 73, 69.
143 Liz Bennett (Brokenhurst Manor) 69, 74
144 Bronwyn Mullins-Lane (Finchley) 74, 70
148 Clare Howells (Moor Hall) 73, 75.
149 Kerry-Anne Haskell (Broadstone) 77, 72.
