Caitlin’s masterclass

Cumbria’s Caitlin Whitehead powered away to win her first international title with a three-shot victory in the girls’ European Young Masters at Hauger Golf Club in Norway.

The 15-year old put her foot down over the last three holes, playing them in one under-par, to break clear of the charging Spanish player, Carolina Lopez-Chacarra.

Whitehead finished on three under-par while her challenger faded over the closing holes with bogeys on 16 and 18, dropping back to level par for the 54-hole event.

“I’m really pleased,” said Caitlin, from Carus Green Golf Club. “I’ve been playing well all season and been quite consistent but hadn’t managed to win many tournaments. I’m happy to have finished one off.”
