Boulden creates history

Amy Boulden was celebrating last night after creating history by becoming the first Welsh winner of the English Women's Open stroke-play championship.
In clinching the title at Mannings Heath in West Sussex, the Conwy-based Curtis Cup star completed an amazing double having won the Welsh Open stroke-play crown in May.
On Twitter, Boulden said of her win- “That was a long tough battle out there today! But so happy to have won! English open amateur champion sounds nice!”
Boulden, who celebrated her 20th Birthday earlier in the week, finished the 72-holes with an aggregate of three under par, 285, after rounds of 72,69,72 and 72, the same as Singapore-based Charlotte Thomas.
The Welsh star, who had started the last round one adrift and was then two behind with six holes remaining, won the title in a play-off against Thomas, birdying the opening hole in the sudden death play-off.
