HUNSTANTON, England (AP) — Jess Baker has completed a dream week at Hunstanton to win the Women’s British Amateur. The 19-year-old from England had to make a 25-foot birdie putt just to get into the match play portion of the tournament. She built a 3-up lead over Louise Rydqvist of Sweden after the morning 18 holes and stretched the lead to 5 up in the afternoon. The victory means Baker gets into the three majors.
