Leila Scobie (right) from Three Rivers Golf and Country Club in Essex won her club medal and with it the chance to partner PGA Fellow Professional Sarah Bennett (left) in the inaugural all-women WPGA Lombard Trophy regional qualifier at Camberley Heath, Surrey, on July 4. The pair will be playing for a place in the grand final which is being staged at Portugal’s Pestana Vila Sol Golf & Resort Hotel at Vilamoura later in the summer from September 22-23. Scobie first experienced golf through Bennett’s Golfing Girl initiative which has brought several hundred women into the sport over the past five years. “It’s a real achievement Leila has qualified to play with me in the WPGA Lombard Trophy because five years ago she had never picked up a club,” said Bennett, who is an England Golf squad coach. “I’ve since watched her develop all the way from complete beginner to someone who absolutely loves golf. “She started with a few lessons and it has just flowered from there. She has really bought into everything and progressed to runner up in the club championships and winning competitions and now this. “After she found out she’d qualified I received a text saying it was a really scary prospect and I said she must have heard what it’s like playing with me! “She’s already looked up the course on the website and is very excited. It’s just another step in her golfing adventure, another progression she’s taken since first picking up a club. “It’s really special, and even more so because she is leaving Three Rivers to move to Scotland. She will be a big miss because she has been instrumental within the ladies section and a real motivating force.” Scobie is one of a small, but thriving ladies’ section at Three Rivers, and Bennett remains passionate about not only getting more into golf but ensuring they stay in the game. “The key objective for me is retention. A very high percentage of my ladies who I have introduced to golf are still playing. That is the key driver for me. I don’t just want to tick a box when it comes to introducing people to the game and saying I have introduced ‘X’ number. “I would like the majority to still be playing five years later. I think that is how you have to measure success.” Bennett also had other good news having been selected by England Golf as lead coach to take the U16 boys and girls team to face Spain in Madrid at the end of May. The former Ladies European Tour player will cover numerous event preparations including course mapping and course strategy with specific contingency plans. “It’s an area I am meticulous with because tournament preparation is absolutely key,” she said. In the meantime she is also looking to picking up her own clubs again after a hand-injury sidelined her for a couple of years. “I’m looking forward to getting my teeth into playing again. You spend so much time helping other people learn to play you tend to forget what an amazing game it is to play.”last_img read more

(AP Photo/Phil Sears)TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Florida State quarterback and Heisman Trophy candidate Jameis Winston will not be charged with sexually assaulting a woman who accused him of raping her about a year ago, a prosecutor said Thursday.State Attorney Willie Meggs made the announcement at a news conference, saying the woman’s memory lapses of the events last December were problematic and there was not enough evidence to win a conviction. The woman told police she had been drinking at a bar with friends before the alleged assault took place at an off-campus apartment.“It’s not inconsistencies, it’s lack of memory most of the time,” Meggs said of the woman’s allegations.While the alleged assault happened last December, reports didn’t surface in the public until November, as the redshirt freshman was well into a remarkable season with Florida State.Winston, 19, has led the Seminoles to a No. 1 ranking and a shot at a national championship if they defeat Duke on Saturday in the ACC championship game. As for the Heisman, many voters were waiting to see whether he would be charged before the deadline for ballots Monday. The trophy for the nation’s top player will be awarded Dec. 14.Meanwhile, the woman’s family was sharply critical of the Tallahassee Police Department, accusing the agency of delaying the investigation and discouraging her from going forward with the case because of the public attention it would receive.“The victim has grave concerns that her experience, as it unfolded in the public eye and through social media, will discourage other victims of rape from coming forward and reporting,” according to a statement from the accuser and her family.The Associated Press does not identify alleged victims of sexual assault.The alleged assault was reported to police Dec. 7, 2012, but it wasn’t until last month before the public had any idea Winston was the subject of a sexual assault investigation. And it wasn’t until Thursday that specific details of the woman’s accusations began to emerge.She told police she and friends had five to six shots at a bar and her “memory is very broken from that point forward,” according to a search warrant for cell phone records. She said she remembered being in a cab with a “non-descript” black man and going into an apartment, but she didn’t remember where it was.The warrant said she tried to fight the man off, and at some point, another man came into the room and told him to stop. But the two went into a bathroom “where he completed the act.”Her next memory was of the suspect dressing her, putting her on a scooter and dropping her off at a campus intersection.The woman told police she initially didn’t know who assaulted her. She identified Winston, who is black, about a month after the alleged assault.Meggs’ office took over the case last month and interviewed the accuser. They also took DNA from Winston and matched it to DNA on the woman’s underwear. They also matched DNA on her shorts to her boyfriend at the time.Winston’s attorney, Timothy Jansen, said Winston had consensual sex with the accuser. Winston refused to be interviewed by police and has not talked about the case to the media.The quarterback said in a statement he was relieved.“It’s been difficult to stay silent through this process, but I never lost faith in the truth and in who I am,” Winston said.The accuser’s family has been sharply critical of the way Tallahassee police have handled the case. They said they pushed to have a DNA sample taken from Winston, only to be told by a police detective that it would alert Winston and make the case public. The family said Carroll was warned by police that Tallahassee is a “big football town, and the victim needs to think long and hard before proceeding against him because she will be raked over the coals and her life will be made miserable.”Tallahassee police have defended their handling of the case and said it was placed on inactive status in February after police were told the alleged victim did not wish to prosecute the case. The woman’s attorney has denied that the woman wanted to drop the investigation.The alleged victim was an FSU student, but she left school last month as media reports of the case surfaced. Meggs said when his office spoke with the woman last month, she wanted the case to move forward.At a restaurant on campus, students high-fived one another and did the Seminole’s chant and tomahawk chop when Meggs’ said no charges would be filed.“It’s been a tough couple weeks,” said Justin Savage, a 21-year-old senior sports management major from Fort Walton Beach. “I’m just so grateful. He’s just so lovable a guy. You can see him on campus and he’ll talk to you, it doesn’t matter who you are.”___Associated Press writer Kareem Copeland contributed to this story.___Follow Gary Fineout on Twitter: http://twitter.com/fineout.last_img read more
