Course record and hole-in-one

Rachel Gourley celebrated her 13th birthday in style yesterday (July 23) when she broke the ladies' course record at Thetford in the ESGA Under-16 National Championships.
Rachel's afternoon round was a five-under-par 69, including five birdies plus eagles at the 7th and 18th, to break the previous record of 73 set by Jodi Ewart in July 2004. Jodi - now Ewart-Shadoff - is a successful professional on the LPGA tour in America.

But Rachel, a member of Arcot Hall Golf Club in Northumberland, was not crowed as national champion as her morning round was a disappointing 81. Evie Cooke from Yorkshire won the title with 74-73-147 while Lottie Woad (Surrey) was runner-up with 74-74-148. Rachel was third with 150. Norfolk's Eve Neild (Thorpe St Andrew HS) won the morning handicap prize with 74-7-67 and ended on 159 while Chloe Gibbs (Broadland School) ended on 162.
Another highlight of the day was a hole-in-one by Katie Symonds (Staffordshire) at the third.
The boys' champion was Sam West (Hampshire) with 75-69-144, one better than Jacob Tidswell (Dorset) 73-72-145 with Jack Whaley (Yorkshire) third with 148.
