Starting with six shot lead Trish knew it would only be total disaster that could stop her winning; “With a six shot lead today, I think if I’d thrown that away in perfect conditions, well, it was a difficult one, I played pretty well but I never got the putter going at all.” "I just didn’t putt as well as the first two days but I didn’t have the same mentality. I suppose that was because I was defending a little bit, which I didn’t think I’d do.” "I wasn’t expecting this. I had very low expectations and I guess that worked for me. I didn’t have a practise round and I didn’t play until Friday morning and probably played one of the best rounds of my life on Friday. I’m chuffed to bits.” Gwladys Nocera finished in second place at -5 under par, her last round -3 under par 69 just not quite good enough to catch Trish at the top of the leaderboard. Three Ladies tied for third spot at -4 under par, Rebecca Artis, Stephanie Na and Sally Watson. Trish also won  the Pro-Am tournament that was running simultaneously with the main event. She was partnered by ex-footballer Alan Hansen, a 5 handicap golfer, who was full of praise for her performance; " She played so well for the three days and was just rock solid, putted great. It was never in doubt and watching her play was a delight. This is the fourth time I’ve played with her and she hits it so well."
