Beckwith crowned Abraham champion

England Golf teenager Kirsty Beckwith has been crowned Abraham Trophy champion following a narrow one-shot victory at Delamere Forest in Cheshire.

The 15-year-old from Moortown, Yorkshire fired a nett 4-under 68 playing off a six-handicap, to edge out fellow Yorkshire 15-year-old Bethany Acey of Sandburn Hall.

Beckwith, who took up the game just four years ago, will now drop down to a five-handicap as she bids to fulfil her goal of reaching the end of the season off three.

“It’s amazing, I really didn’t expect to win and I’m very happy,” said Beckwith, who also beat the boys to win the Colin Montgomerie Scratch Cup earlier this season.

Beckwith will now turn her attention to the English U15 girls’ championship which starts on Tuesday, also at Delamere Forest.
