Holly Wins U13 Surrey Girls Golf Championships

Third Form pupil, Holly Justice (Hu), competed in the Surrey Girls Championships at West Hill and won the U13s competition. Over the morning’s 18 holes, Holly shot a gross 84, +10 over par (11 under her handicap at the time).

Holly reflected on the competition, “When I played at West Hill Golf Club, I was a bit nervous as it was one of my first Surrey Competitions in a while. On the front nine I made quite a few mistakes but I worked through them focusing on the good not the bad.

“The back nine holes were the best I’ve probably ever played, making very few mistakes and only shooting 1 over par, with back-to-back birdies on 14 and 15.

“I hadn’t been focusing too much on the score, so when I finished the round and my dad told me I had shot 10 over par, I was amazed. It felt brilliant to win a semi-major competition and to be congratulated by many people who inspire me. Overall it was a great experience and I am glad I entered.”
