What a day at Prestwick today!!


Connie Jaffrey had 2 great wins today and progresses to the final of the Scottish Ladies Amateur Championship tomorrow against Gabrielle MacDonald from Craigielaw.

This morning she had a tight match against Lauren Whyte, going one down after 13 she birdied 15 to square the match then won 16 and 17 to take the tie by 2&1.

She faced a tough opponent in the afternoon semi final - recent Curtis Cup selection, Eilidh Briggs from Kilmacolm. Connie was one under par for the front 9 and turned for home one up. Eilidh fought back to square the match after 11 but Connie won the 12th to go back to one ahead. The match was squared after 14 but Connie again played 16 and 17 well to book her place in the final with a 2&1 win.

The final tees off at 0900 tomorrow morning at Prestwick Golf Club and I know that Connie would appreciate all your support.

Another great success for Ayrshire this afternoon when Emma Hale from Troon won the Clark Rosebowl. A close semi final against Tara MacTaggart went to the 18th and she then went on to beat Renfrewshires Carol Whyte by 2&1 in the final. A fantastic week and result for Emma who will receive her trophy tomorrow after the Championship final.
