Charlestown darts prodigy and international competitor Corrine Hammond has been named the 2017 British Open Ladies champion.

Hammond is currently in the UK on a 12-month tour of the darts circuit there, culminating in the British Open and World Masters tournament.

Hammond trailed early against her opponent, three-time world champion Anastasia Dobromyslova from Russia.

In the end she was able to battle back and take out the title with her 5-3 win.

She then turned to the World Masters Darts tournament, also held at the same venue as the British Open, where she nearly made it a tourney double on her tour.

The Charlestown deadeye made her way to the semi-final through Mikuru Suzuki, the Japanese women’s champion, after Suzuki blew two chances to put the game to bed.

Hammond then downed England’s Sarah Roberts to book her spot in the grand final.

She started off strong against England’s best, Lorraine Winstanley, leaping out to a 2-1 lead in the decider.

It wasn’t enough to claim her maiden World title however, as Winstanley’s experience and talent shone through to keep the title on English soil.
