Dickens of a time at Glenmuir Women’s PGA Professional Championship

Suzanne Dickens has claimed victory in the 2014 Glenmuir Women’s PGA Professional Championship adding the title to her Order of Merit triumph. The 42-year-old Thorpe Wood professional eased to a seven-shot victory over Ormskirk’s Alison Gray in the premier women’s event on the PGA schedule at Blairgowrie Golf Club, Scotland. She collected a winner’s cheque for £1,000.

Dickens admitted she was almost overcome by emotion after sinking an eagle on the par five seventeenth that ensured she could go down the last and take in the moment. “I can’t believe I’ve won as it is something I have wanted to win and it has been one of my goals for the year. It means a lot as I’ve got a lump in my throat. When I was I was on the eighteenth green I had to get hold of my thoughts and concentrate on what I was doing as I could quite easily have burst into tears as I was that happy. It’s a really big tournament and everyone wants to win it. I’m just happy that I can get my name on the trophy.”
