Ryan captures Monmouthshire Girls’ title

Newport’s Jordan Ryan edged her way to the Monmouthshire Girls’ title, holding off the chasing pack to secure a two-stroke victory.

The Park Course at Dewstow Golf Club played host to the event where spectators witnessed a tight ending to proceedings. Ryan completed her round with a gross 83, and did just enough to stay ahead of Angharad Evans of St Pierre, club-mate Emma Miller and Parc’s Katie Dwyer, all of whom carded an 85.

Rhian Morgan scored the best net for the competition with a 68, playing off a handicap of 20. She was closely followed by Sophie Madsen of St Mellons who scored 71, playing off a handicap of 24.

Llanwern’s Nia Glanville won the competition for girls under the age of 12, scoring a net 75 off a handicap of 30. There was also a separate competition for younger girls who played nine holes off forward tees, with another Newport prospect, Megan Vineall, finishing first ahead of Erin John of Tredegar Park.

Remarkably, 10-year-old Erin Lyons of St Mellons scored a birdie on the par-three ninth hole known as ‘Peaches’, quite an achievement for a young girl who has yet to obtain her handicap.
