Championship decided on last putt.June 4, 2014 3:50am
Leanne Busch secured a one putt victory against club champion Helen Emery in the Valley View women’s championship last Wednesday.
In a close contest the entire day, Busch recorded her second championship victory with the final putt deciding the result of 181 to 182.
Busch said she thought Emery would come back and win, despite leading for most of the contest.
‘‘Helen played really well on the second nine and she really came back at me,’’ she said.
‘‘When we got to the last hole I wasn’t sure who was leading, whether I was in front or not, but after I put my last putt in Helen put her hand out and said congratulations and I just asked ‘are you sure?’
Busch said it was not until she had a chance to count the scoring cards that she was able to accept that she had won.
‘‘I was a bit nonchalant at first because I didn’t know the score when I putted out,’’ she said.
‘‘I wanted to add up first and then I realised ‘oh my God I have won’. It really only hit me though once you go inside and sit down and people congratulate you and you are presented the trophy with the other winners that it begins to feel more like a championship win.’’
Ms Busch has been playing golf for 26 years and won the Valley View women’s championship in 2009.
She maintains that she only plays the sport because it’s what she loves to do and has no particular goals for future championships.
‘‘Nothing really, I will just keep plodding along like I am now,’’ she said.
‘‘I’ll just do what I normally do because it’s what I enjoy.’’
