A COUNTY woman has won her maiden professional golf title after 18 years on the tour.

Becky Morgan, who grew up in Ross-on-Wye, enjoyed her golden moment after achieving a two-shot victory in the Hero Women’s Indian Open.

The former student at Monmouth School for Girls had previously achieved 22 top-10 finishes, tied for second spot at the Indian Open in 2015 and was runner-up in the 2001 French Open.

However, this was 44-year-old Becky’s first triumph in her 119th competition on the Ladies European Tour.

“It’s taken me 18 years and it’s a mixture of excitement and relief that finally I have done it,” said Becky, who was educated with her twin sister Rachel at Monmouth.

“I didn’t look at the scoreboard until the 18th green because I knew anything could happen. I knew I was doing fairly well, because I was playing well, but I kept to myself and let it happen.”

Becky, who represents Wales, grew up in Ross and became a ladies’ professional golfer in 2000.

She was introduced to golf when she was 12 years old by her grandfather at Ross Golf Club

“I have always loved everything about India,” said Becky.

“That’s why I have kept coming back and I did come close to winning a couple of times and finally I got the job done this time.”
