Her first success was at Royal West Norfolk and now she's added her second win at Woburn. After the two events she was 12 shots clear of her closest challenger and the top girls' qualifier for the regional final at Forest of Arden in August.

“It was really horrendous weather at Woburn,” said Tiffany, who shot seven over 82.
