Congratulations to Jessica Hall on winning the County Championship at Hartlepool by beating Shannon O'Dwyer at the first extra hole. The many spectators were treated to some excellent golf in what was possibly the best final for many years with both players playing beautifully. We are lucky to have such talented players in Durham. Both girls are currently studying at Colleges in the US but have come throught the County's Junior programme and credit must be given to the County Association for the encouragement and support which they give to all our young players. Interesting to note that the youngest players in the Championship this year will have to wait 40 years before they can join the Vets!
