For Immediate Release:

Under-15 competitors, Rachel Steeves of Sussex and Callie Taylor of The Riverside took to the course during a drizzling start to the second round which showcased just how challenging the Graham Cook design can be. Mother Nature would have its say on the outcome as players were faced with ever-changing weather and temperatures during Monday’s round.
