Dye’s hopes dashed after last hole disaster

CHESHIRE’S Sue Dye’s hopes of a third International English Senior Women’s Strokeplay Championship were dented after a disastrous final hole at Broadstone, Dorset.

The Delamere Forest player was one ll one ahead of Lulu Housman stood on the 18th tee. But she struck her drive hit trees and came down short, her second went in the rough and eventually she walked off the green with a double bogey six.

And Housman, from Middlesex,  held her nerve to beat challenge of Aileen Greenfield, of Sussex, on the first sudden-death hole.

Sue took third place with a philosophical remark of: “That’s just golf, isn’t it.”

Other prize winners were Julie Brown (Trentham), Caroline Berry (Bromborough) and Debbie Richards (Burhill). Gill Snelson (Wellingborough) won the over-65 trophy.
