DEBIE Gibson won her first-ever title at the Fiji Golf Club ladies competition when she took out the ANZ Tanoa Trophy yesterday.

She carded 38 last Tuesday and then carded the same score again yesterday at the Fiji Golf Club course in Vatuwaqa to win the overall title.

"I never actually thought about winning until after I gave my card in," Gibson said.

"Today (yesterday) it was wonderful competition with fantastic weather and a great turnout from the ladies.

"I have been competing for around one and half years now and now that I have my first taste of success, I aim to continue winning."

Ladies secretary Ana Harvey said 28 ladies turned up for the competition yesterday.

"We had a very good turnout and the ladies recorded some very good scores," she said.

"Also we would like to thank the sponsors for the event, ANZ, for their wonderful support and we hope they will continue to support us in our competitions."

SH Lim won division one competition with a score of 74 and second-placed Gye Oh also recorded the same score but lost out on countback.

Kelera Watling was third with a score of 70.

In division two, E H Kim won convincingly with a score of 75.

Mua Rawlinson was second with a score of 67 and third placed Marica Margetts also carded 67 but lost out on countback.
