Amelia Williamson has completed a notable double – despite being below her best in the second tournament of a double header at the weekend.

The Royal Cromer player took the first step in a successful title defence a fortnight ago when she won the Hampshire Rose by a stroke.

The 17-year-old Royal Cromer player was three-under par for the 36 holes at North Hants Golf Club, adding her name to a trophy which has previously been held by top professionals Charley Hull and Georgia Hall.

She then moved on to the Roehampton Gold Cup on Saturday which is paired with the Hampshire Rose to create a 72-hole event, offering world ranking points while the overall winner receives the Gold Rose Trophy.

Williamson became the first winner of the combined event last year and retained the trophy, which was given by Olympic champion Justin Rose, despite finishing just outside the top 10 following rounds of 75 and 76. Her four-round aggregate of 292 was one better than Castle Royle’s Cara Gainer.
