Junior Jess Atwell wins National event


JESSICA Atwell, from Llanwern, scored an extraordinary 50 stableford points to win the Ping Welsh Junior Tour under 14s event at Lakeside Golf Course.

Playing off a handicap of 13, Jessica recorded a gross score of one under par, returning a card including five birdies.

Golf Union of Wales championship manager David Wilson said: “This was an exceptional score from Jessica and easily justified the early morning start and long trip from Llanwern to get to the Lakeside venue.”
