First published in Tennis by , Sports Reporter

Richmond's teenage golfing prodigy Inci Mehmet has collected another trophy by winning the Ladies Championship at Wentworth Golf Club.

The 14-year-old Tiffin Girls School student is the first junior to win the title having come through semi-final and final play-offs last weekend.

To qualify, she played in the Tiger Cup last week and won with the best scratch score and overall score to guarantee her place in the knock out.

In the semi-final, she won by 4&3 and then romped to success in the final by winning 7&6 after just 12 holes.

Mehmet's has been playing golf since she was four and has her handicap down to 3.6.

She has already met and played with Britain's most successful golfer Laura Davies and is a member of Surrey Ladies' first team.

Last year, she finished second at the European U13 Championships and then came 16th in the English U15 Championships.
