Having returned the lowest aggregate of four nett scores in EG medal rounds in 2017, Rachel Miller qualified for the Regional Medal Final (Midlands North) which took place at Burton on Trent's beautiful course this year. Early on, the conditions were cool with a significant breeze however the greens varied from fast to lightning. Such conditions were clearly too challenging for many as CSS for the day was 76. However Rachel, who posted a praiseworthy nett 77, held her breath as the scores trickled in to finally find herself placed 9th out of 10 available places for the Grand Medal Final. This takes place at Frilford Heath in Oxford in early August. We wish Rachel the very best of luck in the next round!!
