Lindrick's Nicola Slater made a frustrating start in the St.Rule Womens Trophy at St.Andrews and rounds of 78 and 80 left the Yorkshire and England player well down the field. However, that was all to change when the 18yr old stood on the tee on her third and final round.

Nicola who is the current Northern Ladies Champion started well on the Old Course with 2 birdies on the first seven holes. She then played the next seven holes in a remarkable seven under par and added another birdie on the infamous 18th to end her round bogey free with an eagle and eight birdies. Her final score of 66 equalled the Ladies Course record at what is one of the oldest and arguably the most famous golf course in the World.The record equalling round boosted Nicola to 19th position but her performance will be remembered for that fantastic achievement in her truly remarkable third round
