TERESA TAYLOR secured the Mapledurham Golf Club ladies’ championship for the fifth successive year last week, her sixth title in all.
The championship was played over two days in different conditions. Day one was hot and dry but overnight torrential rain and thunderstorms changed the playing conditions for day two. This did not deter 10-handicap Taylor who carded 83 each day to give her a total of 166.
Of the 28 competitors five were within six strokes of the leader after day one. Challenging on four down were mother and daughter Kim and Jessica Kennedy with 87 strokes followed by Dawn Challis on 88 and 89 for both Val Ochonski and Kari Dixon.
Day two proved to be too much for Ochonski and Kim Kennedy who finished with 180 and 181 respectively. Julie Parsons tried hard to make up from 91 after day one but her subsequent 87 only gave her a total of 178. Jessica Kennedy ended up on 176 after carding an 89 in round two.
The best rallies came from Challis who returned 85 despite the change in conditions and Dixon with 86 to give them 173 and 176 respectively.
