Wellingborough golfer Meghan MacLaren wins by eight in USA

England international Meghan MacLaren swept away from the field to score an eight-shot win – and her fifth victory on the US women's college circuit.

The British stroke play champion was 11-under par for two rounds of the JU Amelia Island Collegiate in Florida and was declared the winner when the final round was abandoned after heavy rain flooded the greens.

Meghan, 20, set a personal best and a course record with her first round 64, which was eight under par. Remarkably it included a double bogey, on the par four 16th, alongside eight birdies and an eagle. She shot 69 in the second round.
