Prestbury, Cheshire and England star Bel Wardle enjoyed a stunning victory in the English Women's County Champions of Champions Tournament at Woodhall Spa.
Bel consolidated her reputation as one of England’s finest emerging talents as she dominated the field at the English Women’s County Champion of Champions event at the par 73 Hotchkin Course.
The 2017 English Women’s Open Stroke Play champion carded rounds of 72 and 71 which was enough to give her an eight-shot victory on three under par 143.
Bel’s nearest challengers were Surrey champion Lottie Woad and Bethany Garton from Lancashire. Woad represented England while finishing sixth at this year’s European Young Masters in the Czech Republic and she maintained her fine recent run of form by recovering from an opening 78 to post a 73 and finish on five-over par 151. Garton from Royal Lytham and St Annes carded rounds of 76 and 75 to complete the tournament on the same total.
