HUDDERSFIELD golfer Sandra Paul is the new Yorkshire Veteran Ladies champion.
Sandra, 55, won the title at Hessle Golf Club after beating Colleen McCormack of Bridlington Belvedere 4 and 2 in the final.
Sandra, from Northowram, took up golf at the age of 14. She has won the Halifax-Huddersfield Championship three times and is currently reigning champion.
The Yorkshire Vets is her first county title and comes just one week after a disappointing showing at the English Senior Championship at York Golf Club the previous week, where she failed to qualify.
Sandra said: “I am absolutely over the moon. I feel like I have gone from chump to champ in a week!
“I thought a county title was never going to happen for me, so this is fantastic. It has given me loads of confidence and I am really looking forward to defending my Huddersfield/Halifax title at Crosland Heath in August.”
Gill Travis, of Crosland Heath, won third net prize with a 74 (off seven) at the county Vets.
THE Halifax/Huddersfield Union’s Junior golfers start their Inter-Union season tomorrow, when they take on the Leeds at Headingley.
The 12-strong Halifax, Huddersfield Junior side is:
Jamie Smith (Halifax Ogden), Tom Williams (Huddersfield), Michael Major (Huddersfield), Ethan Shaw (Marsden), Louis Collier (Crosland Heath), Brad Hardcastle (Halifax West End), Josh Bailes (Halifax Bradley Hall), Connor Judson (Halifax Ogden), Corey Avison (Marsden), Gary Moulman (Huddersfield), Jonathan Fleetwood (Crosland Heath), Josh Morton (Hanging Heaton).
