Chloe clinches it

Chloe Garner jumping for joy immediately after hitting her winning drive.

Somerset West golfer, Chloe Garner, won the women’s division of the World Long Drive Championships in Thackerville, Oklahoma on Wednesday September 4, with a drive of 347 yards (317.3m), beating into second place New Zealand’s Phillis Meti, who has won the event for the preceding two years. “That was unbelievable,” said Chloe. “I felt really good going into it. I felt like I had found a good rhythm. I think maybe Phillis felt a bit more pressure having to back up those titles, whereas I was able to let loose.” Chloe is a member of Somerset West Golf Club.
