Holly Stand­ing carded a course record of 69 on her way to win the Eng­land Golf South Re­gion Ladies’ ti­tle by three shots at Banstead Downs in Sur­rey. Four birdies and an ea­gle in the morn­ing helped her to fin­ish fou­run­der par and lead by four at the halfway stage. How­ever, con­di­tions de­te­ri­o­rated in the af­ter­noon, with blus­tery winds and heavy show­ers mak­ing scor­ing dif­fi­cult, Holly shoot­ing 77 to fin­ish on level par 146 in the 36-hole scratch event. She also won the hand­i­cap tro­phy. Twenty-year-old Holly is home from the United States where she is continuing her golf schol­ar­ship at Arkansas Tech Univer­sity and is also study­ing psy­chol­ogy. She re­turns to the US in a fort­night’s time to com­plete her fi­nal year.
