Emily Gottfried has won the 2019 Paradise Island Adventure Golf Open Championship held at the Trafford Centre.
The annual PIAG Open competition takes place across Paradise Island Adventure Golf's seven venues and is the largest Open miniature golf tournament in the UK with thousands of players competing across three age categories at each venue.
Emily scored a course record of 30 on the Temple Ruins layout to win the competition. The course par is 42. Her round included seven holes-in-one on the 18-hole course.
Emily, 37 said "I am so happy to win the PIAG Open in Manchester. It's a great course that I really enjoy playing, so to get seven aces in my round was really nice. There are a lot of well-designed and aceable holes at the Trafford Centre course, so I'm really pleased I managed to get my best ever round there for the tournament on Sunday. I can't wait to play again already. The trophy is wonderful too!"
