Inter County Matches

Ayrshire got off to a great start against Dunbartonshire & Argyll in the first day of the West of Scotland Inter County Matches at Loudoun Gowf Club.

In the morning foursomes they took a 2 point lead after Catherine Malcolm (Prestwick St Cuthbert) and Linzi Allan (West Kilbride) won their match at the 18th and Liz Keohone (Loudoun) and Emma Hale (Troon Ladies) had an excellent 5&4 win.  Audrey Thompson (Loudoun) and Connie Jaffrey (Troon Ladies) also had a very close game which ended in a halved match.

Ayrshire Champion Catherine Malcolm showed the way in the afternoon singles with a 4&3 win over Lorraine Campbell (Cardross) and Debbie Watt (Belleisle) was unlucky when her opponent chipped in at the 18th to win the match. Jenny Linklater (Largs), Emma Hale (Troon Ladies) and Linzi Allan (West Kilbride) added a further 3 points to the Ayrshire total before Connie Jaffrey (Troon Ladies) lost out in a very close match with Claire Hargan (St Regulus) which went to the 18th hole.

The final tally for today was 6.5 to 2.5 and Ayrshire will now play Lanarkshire in Day Two.
