Jodi Ewart scores first win in US

England’s Jodi Ewart (pictured) has won her first tournament on the US women’s college circuit and collected two player of the year awards.

Jodi, 19, from Catterick Golf Club in Yorkshire, holed a testing four-footer on the 18th green to finish one shot clear of the field in the Mountain West Conference’s women’s golf championship at St George, Utah.

"The last four or five holes were extremely nerve wracking," explained Jodi, who won her first full England cap as a 17-year-old.  "I've been in that situation before so I just tried to stay calm. However, my hands were shaking on the last putt."

Jodi, who is in her first year at New Mexico University, was named Co-Player of the Year in the Mountain West Conference and also earned the Freshman of the Year honours.

Her first college season has been impressive. Jodi has never finishing lower than 15th place in nine tournaments this year and she is on track to break the school season scoring record of 73.40. Jodi has a 72.96 average after 27 rounds with at least one tournament remaining.

In this latest tournament, played over a challenging 6210-yard course, Jodi shot a one-over 72 in the final round for a 54-hole total of 220, seven over par.

She’s only the second freshman from her college to win a tournament and the third new Mexico student to take this title.

Before starting her university career Jodi represented England in the 2005 Home Internationals. She was also in the teams which won the gold medal at the 2005 European girls’ team championship and the bronze medal at the 2006 European lady juniors’ team championship. She was a member of the English Ladies’ Golf Association’s U21 Squad.
