Ryan takes 2009 Queensland Senior Women’s Amateur golf in fine style

Queensland golf winner Josie RyanLEADING qualifier Josie Ryan (Headland) has won the 2009 Queensland Senior Women’s Amateur Championship at Bargara Golf Club, winning the final 6&4 over Fay Payne (Caboolture).

Dominant all week following a remarkable two-under par second round in the Stroke Play qualifying section, Ryan remained solid throughout the championship, winning her matches convincingly and getting her name on the inaugural event’s trophy.

Making the turn at 3up today, Ryan continued her good form and won the 14th hole to take the title.

Payne played well throughout the week, knocking out number two qualifier Wendy O’Connell in the semi finals yesterday, but Ryan proved too strong and is a deserving Champion.

The Championship also combined a B Grade division, as well as 55 – 64 Years and 65 Years and over divisions.

The results of the other finals today were:

65 Years and Over – Joan Melksham (Maryborough) defeated Bale Lee (Virginia) – 3&2

55 – 64 Years – Fran Taylor (Bargara) defeated Helen Chittock (Virginia) – 5&4

B Grade – Ann Ford (Bargara) defeated Dawn Clements (Bargara) – 5&4

The Bargara Golf Course proved to be a fantastic venue for the event, located next to the beach just a short distance from Bundaberg in the Wide Bay area.

The venue and dates for 2010 will be announced soon.
