Ayrshire Teenagers Tee Up with the Professionals!

Connie Jaffrey (19) and Rachel Foster (13) were invited to play in the two day Pro-Am event of the Ladies Scottish Open at Dundonald.  Connie was playing alongside Connie Chen from South Africa who scored 78 and 77 not good enough to make the cut - their team score was -9.   Rachel's professional partner was Alex Peters from England who had two rounds of 73 against a par of 72.   Their Team score after the two days was -14 which included 4 birdies from Rachel on Saturday giving them a top 10 finish!  Well done Rachel, I'm sure the professional ladies would be impressed! 

Hazel is Scottish Girls' Champion!!

Hazel MacGarvie (Troon Ladies) won the Scottish Girls' Championship at Baberton today after beating Jillian Farrell (Cardross) with an eagle 2 at the first play-off hole after they finished tied on 3 under par 71.   The Championship format had to be changed due to flooding after the two rounds of stroke-play qualifying on Tuesday, so instead of matchplay from there, it was decided on one round of strokeplay today.   Hazel's two 72's had left her tied first after the qualifying but this counted for nothing so it all came down to the round today.   Excellent scoring Hazel, and holding your nerve in the play-off to have an eagle!   Awesome!   Many congratulations from all of us in Ayrshire.   Louise Duncan (West Kilbride) had a 76 today for a top 10 finish.   Well done Louise.
