ROSANNA Halls claimed the title of England’s most improved girl golfer after she sped away to a five-shot victory in the Abraham Trophy final.

The 12-year-old from Gaudet Luce shot an eight-under par round 64 on the Signature Course at Nottinghamshire Golf and Country Club to claim top spot.

Halls took 79 strokes to complete her round and it was the first time the youngster had broken 80 in the competition.

Her closest rivals Georgia Ann Pritchard (Beau Desert), Jess Bakes (Gosforth Park Ladies) and Lexi Dart (Churston) tied with scores of three-under 69.

Halls was one of 20 girls who contested the final, having qualified on the basis of handicap reduction.

Holding a handicap of 36 last year, Halls is now playing off 15 and will be having another hefty cut following her impressive performance at the Abraham Trophy final.

Halls’ father Richard introduced her to the sport four years ago and she now boasts a lower handicap than him.

She said: “I’m really pleased with my score. It’s just been a pleasure to be here.

“I think golf is an amazing sport, you meet new people and the courses you get to play are fantastic. It’s a lovely sport to play.”
