Azelia Meichtry

Azelia was the only player (boy or girl) with an afternoon tee time to break par, a superb effort!  She played the back 9 first and turned in 1 over par 37 and after dropping another shot at hole 4 on her back 9 to fall 2 over par she birdied 5, 6 and 8 to get her score under par.

Whilst there was a wind in the morning, it was far stronger in the afternoon which made Azelia’s achievement all the more impressive.
