Teenage golfer becomes youngest ever junior county champion

Despite challenging weather at Badgemore Park, Lara Murphy won by a seven-shot margin.

Battling rain and wind, she birdied the 17th to emerge victorious.

Having joined the county juniors at the age of eight, Ms Murphy, whose home club is Frilford Heath, is also the youngest to represent Oxford Seniors.

Her coach, PGA professional Andy Taylor, said: “Lara has worked very hard this Winter, so this title is very much deserved.”

The Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire Girls Championship and Oxfordshire Girls Championship took place on the same day.

The overall Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire Championship winner with a +5 gross score of 77 was Katy Lansley.
