2nd July 2014
Continued success for Ayrshire on the golf links as our own Vice Captain, Liz Keohone, and Past Captain, Alex Glennie, have both qualified for the match play stages of the competition which is being held at Elgin this week.
Both posted identical scores in the stroke play with 77's in round one and 79's in round two, with a Par of 74 that was great scoring from them both. In fact, they finished tied 2nd in the stroke play, only 2 strokes behind the winner Alison Bartlett from Royal Dornoch. In a field of 91 players the girls have really done us proud.
Sixteen players go through to the match play which starts tomorrow morning. Liz will face another West golfer, Sheena McDonald from Milngavie and Alex plays Linda Grieve from Musselburgh.
Good luck to both.
