SALE ace Cath Rawthore is England’s top senior golf for the second time after topping England Golf Senior Orders of Merit.
She laid the foundations of her success with a dramatic win in the senior women’s amateur when, having trailed throughout the final, she triumphed on the 21st hole.
The circumstances of the win, coupled with adverse weather conditions, “made it all the more special” and completed her set of senior titles, having won the British and English strokeplay championships in previous years.
She said: “Winning the Order of Merit is very special, particularly when you look at the calibre of the ladies involved in the running.”
Rawthore is part of England’s successful senior women’s team and she added: “I feel lucky and honoured to have represented England for the last four years and although it is a competitive environment, it is very friendly and a lot of fun.
“To continue to do so in 2017 will require being in form as soon as the season starts and I will be trying my very best over the winter to do just that.”
