Scottish Girls Amateur Championship

Louise Duncan (West Kilbride) leads the qualifiers in the Scottish Girls' Amateur Championship.   In the first round yesterday at Drumoig Louise had 8 birdies in her round of 69 to be 4 under par.   2 over for 74 at Scotscraig today leaves Louise leading the field by 5 shots going into the matchplay where the top 16 scratch players will battle out for the National title.   Rachel Foster (Turnberry) had rounds of 84 and 80 to land in 16th spot so the two Ayrshire girls will meet tomorrow in the first round.   Claire McLaughlin (West Kilbride) narrowly missed out in the top flight but qualifies for the nett matchplay trophy where a further 16 girls continue on a knock-out basis.   The CSS for both days was 74.      Good luck to our three Ayrshire Girls! 
As top qualifier Louise has earned a place in the Scottish Ladies Open Pro-Am at Dundonald Links on Wednesday, 26th July - what a treat to look forward to!   Well done Louise 😊
