Connie in Scottish Ladies Finals Tomorrow

Connie Jaffrey (Troon Ladies), and Clara Young (North Berwick), will contest Saturday's 18-hole final of the 103rd Scottish women's amateur championship over Royal Aberdeen's Balgownie links (8.30am tee off).

Connie was Ayrshire Champion and Scottish U18 girls champion in 2013 and beaten finalist in the Scottish Ladies Amature Championship at Prestwick by Gabrielle MacDonald in the same year, will start slight favourite to win what should be an intriguing contest.

Connie ,who KO'd the North's last hope, Hannah McCook (Grantown on Spey) by 2 and 1 in the morning quarter-finals, was five under par in winning her semi-final by 3 and 2 against 17-year-old professional's daughter, Jillian Farrell.

Connie had six birdies in all, including three of the last four holes played to end the match on the 15th green but Farrell did not go down without a fight and was all square at the turn, both players having gone out in two-under-par 37.

Clara Young, Scottish champion at Monifieth in 2015, has carried on the impressive form - 16 under par for 54 holes - which saw her win the St Rule Trophy at St Andrews last week.
