Not only did the Ely City player have to battle against some of the area’s most promising young golfers, she was also suffering with a virus ahead of the event getting under way at St Neots Golf Club.

Nevertheless, Mason started off with a solid score of 84 in the morning, leaving her two shots clear at the summit ahead of club-mate Natasha Bamford.

In the afternoon round, Mason tightened up her game to produce a round of 80 for a total of 164, which gave her a winning margin of 9 shots over Bamford.

The runner-up’s second round of 87 gave her an overall score of 173, while she also won the prize for the best morning round with a gross score of 86.
