Hannah Darling secures six-stroke home 

victory at Scottish Girls’ Open 



  Hannah Darling in the rough for probably the time in her all-the-way victory at St Andrews

Scottish U18 girls champion from last year, Hannah Darling led from start to finish at the 2019 Scottish Girls’ Open Championship in a title march that saw her have six strokes to spare over a strong international field after 54 holes over the Eden Course,  St Andrews today.
 Taking a three-shot lead into the final round, the 15-year-old outstanding prospect from Broomieknowe Golf Club carded her second even-par 71 round of the week to finish on four-under-par 209.  
England’s Ellie Gower was two-under-par through 12 but an 8 on the penultimate hole put an end to her chase. 
Darling, who had spoken about maintaining a level-head throughout the week, did just that, finishing with a birdie on 18th to secure a six-shot advantage.
"I stuck to my game plan and I'm just really happy to come away with the win.”  
Darling was able to share the victory with her parents, adding:  “It’s the first time that they have both been here to see me win a national title. It’s always good to see fans out watching.” 
Darling now turns her attention to next week’s Helen Holm Women’s Open at Troon. With next week’s event counting towards qualification for The PING Junior Solheim Cup, the Scots teenager is hoping she can take advantage of her recent run of form, adding:  “Next week’s event is a women’s event so obviously it will step up another level, but I am definitely happy with where my game is at the moment and ready to take on the challenge of next week and hopefully, I will come away with another good performance.”
