IRELAND’S Laura Webb overcame a strong international field at Crail to win the Women’s Senior Open Amateur Championship for a second time. The winner at Caldy in the north-west of England two years ago, Webb led by three shots after an opening round of 67, which was a course record. She coasted to an impressive nine-shot victory over Catherine Rawthore with a final round 73 over the Craighead Course.
“It was really tough going out there and putting was particularly difficult,” she said. “It may seem that I had a comfortable lead but you can never be too far ahead in these conditions. I am really delighted to win again.”
Webb has won the Irish girls’, ladies’ and senior titles and has also played for her country at all three levels.
