INSTITUTE OF EDUCATION & LORETO NAVAN WIN AT MILLTOWN DONEGAN TAKES THE SPOILS AT WEATHER-HIT LAHINCH BACK-NINE BLUNDER HALTS MEADOW PROGRESS IN LA Stephanie Meadow endured a horror back nine to finish down the board at the Hugel-Air Premia LA Open. Meadow had entered the final round hoping to make her ascent up the leaderboard and after making the turn in 34, she looked set to do so. However, a bogey on 10 was compounded by further dropped shots at 12 and 13 and although the Jordanstown professional rallied with birdies at 15 and 16, Meadow bogeyed 17 before making a bitterly disappointing triple at the last. 41 homeward bound strokes meant Meadow had to settle for a share of 69th in the Californian clubhouse at eight-over par, and she collected a cheque worth $3,062 for the result. Meadow re- turns to action on Thursday for the LPGA Mediheal Championship in Daly City, California. Meanwhile, Australian Minjee Lee returned a final round 68 in LA that saw the 22-year old collect her fifth LPGA Tour title by four strokes at 14-under par. FULL SCORING HERE Lahinch's Aine Donegan made home advantage count as she secured her second victory on the Scratch Cup Circuit this year at Lahinch. The event, which was reduced to 18 holes due to severe weather conditions, saw four players tied on five- over par, however Donegan was awarded the honours on a countback. Lisburn's Paula Grant remains a top of the ILGU Scratch Cup Circuit with just two events re- maining. The Hermitage Scratch Cup takes place on Sunday, May 5.
