Jessica is a record breaker

There’s just no stopping Bishop Auckland’s Jessica Hall.

The England Girls international started the year with a top 20 finish in the Portuguese Ladies Championship and was picked for the England team for the Irish and Scottish Girls Championships.

She birdied the last two holes to clinch third place in Irish Girls and while she was disappointed with her showing in the Scottish Girls and Scottish Ladies, she bounced back with runner-up finishes in the British Colleges Championship at Forest of Arden and the Durham County Ladies Championship.

Jessica then went on a winning run with victories in the Intercollegiate Tour Championship at Moortown, returned a course record to lift the Durham County Appleby Bowl at Dinsdale Spa, and broke another course record en route to winning the Critchley Salver at Sunningdale. Jessica’s seven-shot win at Moortown was her first national title.

In the Appleby Bowl, a nett trophy, she shot a two under-par 73 gross and won on countback, three better than the previous course record set by Sarah Hirst.

Jessica then entered Sunningdale for experience and won the event with scores of 74 and 69, her second round deciding victory after a tie with Martha Lewis and Rochelle Morris.

She is hoping to carry her form into the North of England Schools Championship at Whickham and several national events.

“If nothing else happens it has been a good year,” she said. “I’m playing lots of national tournaments and hope to achieve some more high finishes, or even win again.”
