Maggie and Sarah played golf with a smile on their face all weekend despite the challenging conditions. They played some wonderfully consistent golf to take the ladies title with 63 points and even kept smiling through unexpected events, as Sarah reports.

“Maggie invited me to come and play a free round of golf with her at the Rustington qualifier. We sneaked in as third place qualifiers but we put together two good rounds and now we’re Ladies’ Champions! After Maggie was so nervous she hit an air shot on the first I didn’t fancy our chances. I had to hit my drive through tears of laughter and we haven’t stopped laughing since. The whole event has been incredible. My father has been very poorly in hospital so I wasn’t even sure if I would make the event, but he was discharged the morning of the second round so I just relaxed into it and we played really well. Our experience with American Golf has just got better and better and I can’t thank them enough for a wonderful Championship!”
