Course record on way to win Keen eye: Cecilia Cho is continuing her fine form on the international amateur golf stage. Photo: FAIRFAX MEDIA New Zealand's first woman to win the prestigious Rivers- dale Cup in Melbourne is a 16-year-old who sharpened her skills at the Pakuranga Country Club. Cecilia Cho won the inter- national women's amateur golf tournament individual title last week with relative ease. Fellow Aucklander Lydia Ko, 13, was second and together they won the teams event by an overwhelming 25 strokes. Cecilia is delighted with the win but she's already tackling another major tour- nament in India. Things started to go her way when she broke the course record, previously held by Kiwi Sarah Nicholson, with her eight under 65 in the second round. The greens were fast and quite a lot of slope on them,'' Cecilia says. But I played really well on that day and made six birdies inarow.Imadefiveinarow once at Whitford Park but this is the best. I felt quite tired at the start of the week after the New Zealand Open, but I got nine hours sleep most nights which was great.'' The Riversdale Cup is one of Australia's oldest amateur tournaments and this year featured players from Belgium, China, Mexico and New Zealand as well as act- ing as an official trial for the Australian players. Cecilia, ranked second in the newly released amateur women's world rankings, began the final round five shots clear of second placed Lydia. She says it was a great week for the Kiwi duo. They are both now in India to contest the Queen Sirikit Cup team championship that tees off today.
