England’s Mimi Rhodes has won the U16 trophy at the Scottish girls’ championship at Montrose Golf Club. The championship itself was won in runaway style by Germany’s Hannah Karg, who was 12-under. She was 10 shots clear of Shannon McWilliam (Scotland) and Hollie Muse (West Lancashire) who both finished on two-under. Rhodes, from Burnham & Berrow in Somerset, was three-over for the 54-hole championship and won the U16 competition by four shots. “I am so chuffed for her,” said England coach Mark Day. “Mimi demonstrated some really good all-round skills and thoroughly deserved her score and the win.” Rhodes started with a scrambling 77 but then controlled the ball well to add scores of one-under 72 and 73. She was part of a six-strong England squad which produced an impressive early season performance. Four of the players were in the top 10, led by Martha Lewis (St George’s Hill, Surrey) who was fourth on level par and who posted the squad’s low score with her second round of three-under 70. “That was a great demonstration of golf, she hit fairways, greens and holed some putts,” said Day. “It was really good.” Hannah Screen (Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire) clearly enjoys Scottish events. She won the U16 championship last year and has now moved up with a share of fifth place in this year’s U18 event, scoring two-over. Mimi Rhodes and Amelia Williamson (Royal Cromer, Norfolk) shared eighth place on three-over. Williamson moved up the leaderboard with a closing score of one-under 72. The squad was completed by newcomers Jess Hall (Bishop Auckland, Durham) and Caitlin Whithead (Kendal, Cumbria) who both had strong finishes. They improved their placings with good final rounds of 74 and 73 respectively. “The girls were brilliant,” said Day. “Conditions were difficult for the first two days and, while the golf course isn’t long it is tricky. It made the girls think and use different skills to control the ball and manage their way around. It bodes well for the rest of the season.” Click here for full scores 14 Apr 2017 Mimi takes U16 honours at Scottish championship
