Past St Thomas’s ladies’ captains Ann Barlow and Michelle McHale, pictured left, notched up a fantastic win to put themselves among a very select group of winners by lifting the South Staffordshire Ladies’ Past Captains Golf Association crown.
Ann and Michelle came top of the 48 pairs competing for the title, held at Great Barr Golf Club at the association’s spring meeting.
The St Thomas’s pair finished just ahead of a talented and experienced field in the four ball better ball competition by virtue of a better back nine.
Ann said: “It’s brilliant to win such a prestigious trophy and finish top in such a distinguished field.”
The victory is a repeat of the success of former St Thomas’s ladies’ captains Judie Bissell and Carol Swain who won the title in 1997.
The win also adds to another success by lady players at St Thomas’s after Sue Boys and Joanne Graham won the Drayton Park Spring Open recently in a three ball alliance competition with Hilary McCrae from Ingestre.
