Samantha Taylor is currently playing in the English Girls' Closed Amateur Championship at Sandiway GC Cheshire and finished the first round in style. I quote the press release from EnglandGolf "Northumberland golfer Samantha Taylor finished the first round of the English girls’ championship on a high – with a hole-in-one on the 18th. The 17-year-old from Parklands used a hybrid for her shot to the 168-yard par three – and watched in delight as the ball rolled into the hole. “It was brilliant,” said Samantha, whose shot made short work of a challenging final hole which is well bunkered and has out of bounds down the right hand side. It was her first hole in one and it helped her to a score of five-over 77, matching her handicap. “It wasn’t too bad, but I should have hit more club on some holes which were playing long because of the rain. I’ll definitely play it differently tomorrow.” Congratulations Sam from all at Parklands.
