It’s Catherine the great – again!

CATHERINE Roberts will again represent Lancashire in the England Golf Champion of Champions final at Woodhall Spa in September after retaining her Lancashire Women’s title at Bolton Golf Club.

It was the fourth time in six years the Pleasington player has claimed the county title and she also won the inaugural Champion of Champions crown last year.

She showed her class as she led in the qualifying round posting 73 to finish ahead of Bethany Garton (Royal Lytham) and Louisa Brunt (Royal Birkdale) both 74Catherine Roberts (2).jpg.

Catherine (pictured) eased through to the final in the matchplay by beating Grainne Pendlebury (Bolton), Sophie Spearlett (Formby Ladies) and Georgia Coughlin ( St Annes Old Links) to set up the final against Bethany Garton who had accounted for Sophia Wood (Pleasington), Alex Forrest (Pleasington) and Louisa Brunt.

Throughout the competition Catherine had been at work at her family owned Hart Common Golf Club at 5am before making the short journey to Bolton.

In the final Bethany , who was county champion in 2010, took an early lead but some fine golf from Catherine  saw her draw level  and then take over the lead and wins on the 12th, 14th and 15th took her to the title by 4&3.

In the Plate final the winner was Lauren Green, of West Lancs, eased to a 5&3 win over Michelle Fielding of Clitheroe.
