England international Hayley Davis, from Ferndown, shot two-under par to win her second title on the US women’s college circuit in the annual Betsy Rawls Longhorn Invitational in Texas.
She laid the foundations of the win with a superb seven-under 65 in the first round and followed up with scores of 75, 74. She had 12 birdies and an eagle during the 54-hole event.
Hayley is a student at Baylor University, Texas, and her coach, Jay Goble, commented after the final round: “Hayley played great this week. Today she did not have all the putts fall, but it was a really dominant performance.”
Hayley is in great form. She won the English women’s stroke play championship immediately before returning to the USA and only last week was runner-up in another college tournament.
Her latest result underlines her consistently strong scoring, providing her 13th top three finish in her college career. She has been placed in the top five 16 times.
Hayley’s result helped Baylor to finish third in the team event, their best result so far this season. Her next event will be the Alamo Invitational at San Antonio, Texas, which runs from October 26 -28.
