GREETHAM Valley’s Sophie Beardsall has been playing for Lincolnshire’s ladies golf team at the England Golf Women’s County Finals this week.
Last year’s champions Lincolnshire opened the defence of their title by beating Lancashire 5-4 in a tense finish at East Devon Golf Club.
After the first two days’ play Essex and Gloucestershire lead the way with 1½ points apiece while Lincolnshire, Lancashire and Surrey each have a point and Buckinghamshire have yet to score.
Lincolnshire girls’ champion Emily Slater (from Ely City GC) secured the point for her team when she birdied the last to win her game 2up.
Sophie and her playing partner Emilee Taylor beat their Lancashire opponents 2&1.
