CHAMP ENDS 57-YEAR TITLE WAIT

Seventy-eight-year-old Jill Thornhill has defied her years to come out on top in a club competition 57 years after her last triumph.

The former Curtis Cup player won the Ladies Autumn Gold Medal over the demanding Old Course at Walton Heath Golf Club in Surrey.

Her one-shot victory was remarkable not only for the winning score – but because it highlighted the longevity of her career. Thornhill – winner of her national title in 1986 at Prince’s Golf Club in Kent – said: “It had been a goal of mine for a couple of years now to break or equal my age and I’ve been close to achieving it. However, each time I managed to get ahead of myself.

In my heyday, if your achievements didn’t get into the press, it didn’t appear anywhere. Now, with social media, everyone seems to know about my 78.”
