Annabel Pitts wins the County Championship for 2019
Annabel Pitts wins her 3rd County Championship
Tough and wet conditions on the qualifying rounds for the championship on Thursday did not disappoint with excellent scoring. Rookie Luca Thompson winning the 36 holes with scores of gross 76 + 80, the runner up was Annabel Pitts. And with fantastic matches in the knockout stages, the semi-finals saw Annabel winning against Sally and another rookie Caitlin Thomas winning her match against the inform Luca.
The final did not disappoint with the match swaying back and forth between the players but eventually Annabel winning on the 17th hole and adding a third Championship title. Congratulation Annabel and commiseration to Caitlin but we will be seeing a lot of this golfer, cool and nerves of steel to add to her ball striking excellence.
