Peninsula in the grip of Flood

Rebecca Flood is the 2008 Victorian Women’s Amateur champion after beating Grace Lennon 1-up at Peninsula Golf Club. An extremely close match saw Flood 1-up on Lennon after the morning round in challenging weather conditions. It went all the way down to the wire with Flood winning the championship on the 36th hole. The win builds on Flood s good results in 2008 after finishing runner-up at the NSW Amateur event and placing 3rd at the Srixon Australian Women’s Stroke Play. It was also an excellent achievement for Lennon, who beat national squad member Clare Choi in the semi finals and was consistent as she pushed her national squad opponent Flood all the way to the end.
