Thank you to all the girls who did an excellent job on the scoreboards, I hope you enjoyed your day on the course!

Scottish Girls' Open Stroke-play Championship

Louise Duncan (West Kilbride) playing in the at Montrose is lying T24 from a very strong filed of competitors, many of them from overseas.   Louise had rounds of 80 and 75 against a CSS of 75 and 73.   14 year old Rachel Foster (Turnberry) left too much to do to make the cut after a disappointing 98 yesterday but bounced back with an 80 today to restore confidence in her game and gain experience for the future.   The top 60 players + ties play the final round on Friday - the cut line was 163 with Louise making the cut to shoot a 79 in the final round to place T39.   Well done girls!

Liz Keohone is ALCGA Champion 2017

Liz Keohone, (Loudoun Gowf Club) is the new Ayrshire Ladies County Champion, winning the title in her year as Captain. It was a great final between Liz and Jane Finnie, Troon Ladies, with Liz winning at the 19th hole.

Jane got off to a great start winning the first 2 holes, the next 4 holes were exchanged before Liz won 8 and 9 to square the match. Liz then chipped in at the 10th to go ahead for the first time in the game. Eleven and 12 were halved in pars before Jane took 3 holes in a row to be 2 up with 3 to play. Sixteen was halved, then a par on 17 was enough for Liz to take the match down 18 where a great chip secured a 4 and a win.

Despite good approach shots to the 19th green neither found the putting surface with Jane running into some trouble at the back of the green. A good up and down from Liz was enough for her to win the hole and the title.

The match was watched by a good crowd who were certainly entertained by the quality of the golf from both finalists in tricky conditions. The better ball score for the 18 holes played being 3 over par.

 Well done to everyone who played this week!
