Players from 11 different countries teed up for the inaugural Girls' Under 16's Open Championship run by the R & A. Played over Fulford near York, Rachel Foster (Prestwick St. Nicholas) had two excellent rounds of 77 and 75, marred only by an 85 in round 2. The CSS for the three rounds was 73, 73, 74. Rachel finished a very creditable 29th out of a field of 90 very talented girls. Scottish Girls' 2017 champion Hannah Darling came from behind to win the event on 218. Well done Rachel!
