Scottish Womens Amateur Championship at Royal Aberdeen

Emma Hale (Troon Ladies) was joint leader, from an impressive field, after the first round qualifier played on Tuesday when the rain didn't stop all day! Emma shot a one over par score of 77 and 17 year old Louise Duncan (West Kilbride) also had a great round scoring 79.

The second qualifying round was cancelled yesterday due to winds gusting over 40 mph making putting impossible on the exposed greens.

The 32 qualifiers were therefore decided on scores returned on Tuesday only.  Unfortunately Louise wasn't able to play in the matchplay due to her school prom which left Emma and Connie Jaffrey (Troon Ladies) playing in the knockout stages.

Emma lost this morning to Kimberley Beveridge while Connie had 2 good wins today taking her through to the last 8 tomorrow.

All the best from Ayrshire Connie, we are with you in spirit!

Both Emma and Louise will be playing for Ayrshire in the Inter County matches at Hamilton Golf Club next week.
