La Moye’s Jenny Deeley, a former county player with Worcestershire and Hampshire, recorded a landslide 17 and 15 win against Guernsey’s Sue Wellfair in the Silver section at Royal Jersey while Mary Marr became the first ever Les Mielles Bronze Division winner after defeating Guernsey’s Wilma Nicolle 7 and 6 at the same venue.
Deeley, who was 14-up at the half-way stage of the best of 36 hole final, turned in a steady performance while her opponent had one of those days when little went right.
Despite winning the first hole with a par, Wellfair struggled to keep up, halving just two of the other 20 holes played.
Deeley said: ‘I played steadily throughout while Sue did not have the best of days.
‘It was good that I lost the first hole because that gave me the focus.
‘It’s not for me,’ the champion admitted, adding: ‘It’s too hot! ‘My husband and I have recently bought a house in the country; we’re busy with that at the moment and we’ll be spending any free time we have there.’ Bronze winner Marr said: ‘I’m delighted to have won and be the first Les Mielles winner.
I was pleased with my game, I played quite well.
I really liked the greens; I was four-up for quite a while and I think that helped me along.
‘This is an incentive for me to take my game more seriously now.
I currently play off 21 handicap and play mainly once a week.
I’ve done that for the past four year and to improve further I need to be getting out on the courses more.
‘It was a great day and I had a good caddy helping me – my husband Brian who is a member at Royal Jersey.’ Marr, who was successful in a draw between the respective Jersey champions, will represent the Jersey Ladies Amateur Golf Association in the HSBC UK Amateur Matchplay Championships in England in September.
