Ladies course record for County Champion Martin

NGL Ladies County Championships

Thalia Martin (Peterborough Milton) was in sensational form in the 2020 Ladies County Championships as she secured the title for the second time with a brilliant Collingtree Park course record seven-under-par 67.

Martin, who was also successful in 2016, never looked back after carding four birdies and no bogeys on the outward half, before picking up further shots on the 11th and 13th holes.

The plus-one handicapper dropped her only stroke of the day on the 15th, but responded in style with back-to-back birdies on the closing two holes to finish an incredible 10 shots clear of runner-up Ellie Darnell (Wellingborough).

Although Martin was unable to claim the net prize, which went to Mary MacLaren (Wellingborough), the result capped an incredible year in which she reached the knockout stages of both the English Amateur and Women’s Amateur Championships.
