Zoe Wilson won the women's competition of Trilby Tour Championship of Cumbria with a magic putt on the 18th at Carson Green. 

She said: "It was a ridiculous feeling because I just wanted to get through. I didn't want to know the score-I knew I was playing well. But there were other people on the course that I knew were good and I was coming back from injury and not having played a particularly good year.

"You have got to play the shots as they come. The first four or five holes I wasn't playing particularly well but I was trying not to get frustrated and to keep calm. But it is just striking away, you have to keep striking away. 

"On the 18th hole I got onto the green for two and I had a fifteen yard putt and it went in. All the course and everybody that you spend so much time with are all cheering for you."

She named Andrew Waple, her coach as 'fundamental in my development' and wanted to credit Carus Green, her local golf club, for creating a warm and friendly atmosphere. 

Carus Green is one of four venues across the country selected to host the tour. The event attracted amateur golfers from across the UK hoping to be among the top fifteen going to the grand final in September. 

Graham Curtin, director at Carus Green says: "The Trilby Tour has been a huge success and the professionalism and commitment of Lloyd South Lakes to this new partnership has been outstanding, we are all hugely excited about our future together."

One of the sponsors was Lloyd South Lakes BMW and MINI. Andrew Robinson, head of business said: "The Trilby tour is the UK's most prestigious amateur golfing event and it is amazing that they selected Carus Green as one of only four clubs to host the event, which is a fantastic achievement.
