“It’s unbelievable to win here really,” said Meadow. “I’m so excited and honoured as well. I want to thank ISPS Handa and Modest! for giving me the opportunity to come home and compete at home – and win at home! It’s very, very special.”

Galgorm Castle Golf Club witnessed high drama until the final putt was holed as Meadow showed real nerve to earn victory ahead of the charging Hull, securing a one-shot victory, before Senior triumphed with a birdie on the second extra hole.

“It’s great to get it over the line. I’ve been close a couple of times this year but to finally get it done means a lot. I’d like to say thank you to ISPS Handa and the Modest! guys – they’ve done a great job again of running this golf tournament.

“I’ve been in three play-offs before and won all three, so keep the play-offs coming I say! You should feel a bit relaxed coming into a play-off because no matter what happens, you’ve still had a really good week so it takes the pressure off a little bit.


Northern Ireland’s Meadow carded a level par round of 73, which included back-to-back birdies on the tenth and 11th holes after a double bogey on the ninth, to stay at her third round total of ten under par and finish one shot clear of Hull in second, who put together a four under par round of 69.

“I watched a few of the leaderboards out there and I knew a couple of the other girls were close, but not really close enough, but when Charley hit that three-wood to six feet on 18, it was an unreal shot and she’s an unreal player but luckily I was able to hit a nice one in there as well. She didn’t make the putt but it was a great run at me. She definitely gave me a run for my money.

“I’ve got a little bit of work to do to maintain my LPGA card so hopefully I can take this win and use this as momentum. If I can win here – I played against Charley Hull and she’s one of the best players in the world – so if I can do it against her, I can do it out there as well. It’s big for my confidence.”

After Senior’s birdie on the 72nd hole ensured he would contest a play-off against Baldwin, who signed for the low round of the day with a six under 67, the Galgorm crowds were almost faced with the prospect of a double play-off with Hull hunting down Meadow.

However, after the Solheim Cup player stiffed a three-wood approach to six feet, her eagle putt slid past the hole which allowed Meadow to secure victory with a par.

With the destination of the women’s title decided, Senior and Baldwin returned to the 18th tee after both finishing on 11 under par, two shots clear of Todd Clements in third place.

After both finding the rough from the tee and eventually going down for par, they returned for a second trip down the final hole.
