The 25th Anniversary Trophy at Greetham Valley produced a stunning performance by Emma Steele to win the Ladies Trophy.

Played in sunny but blustery conditions Steele, playing off 31, had one of those rounds that she will remember for many months to come.

Playing with her brother, Chris (5) and Russell Aust (4), Emma was encouraged all the way round as she eventually handed in a card totalling 46 points.

On her front nine she hardly put a foot wrong to register 25 points, including a birdie on the par three sixth hole and two pars.

Her back nine was equally strong with a further two pars as she netted a further 21 points. Steele will now be playing off 25.
