England’s Annabell Fuller shot seven-under par on the back nine of the Hotchkin course at Woodhall Spa as she played her way to a share of the lead in the English women’s stroke play championship.  She’s tied with Ireland’s Jessica Ross on four-under 69, but they reached the same total in very different ways.  22 Aug 2017 Annabell’s stunning finish earns a share of the lead “When I started I couldn’t hit the ball, I’ve never hit it so badly,” said Fuller, from Roehampton, Surrey. “I thought if I could get round below 80 I’d be happy,” she said. Like Fuller, the 22-year-old finished with a flourish, holing from 25ft on 17 for birdie and getting up and down for a final-hole birdie on the 18th.  The leaders are being chased by Dulcie Sverdloff (Thorpe Hall, Essex), who is a stroke behind on 70.

She parred the short fifth and birdied the long sixth, but promptly missed the fairway on seven. “I thought here we go again, but I started to play really well, steady and straight.  This was McGinty’s first outing on the course after she arrived in Woodhall Spa feeling unwell and opted out of practice yesterday in favour of a course walk.  “I hit a couple of nice pitches and holed the putts and then I was back to level after 14.” From then on there was no stopping her. She had another birdie on 15, yet another on 17 where she holed a 30-footer – her only long putt of the round – and finally rammed home a 10ft putt on the 18th for eagle.  Ross, meanwhile, got off to a quick start and was three under after six, helped by super-accurate hitting which gave her putts of just 1ft on the 2nd and 5th.   “I hit a couple of nice pitches and holed the putts and then I was back to level after 14.” From then on there was no stopping her.
