Less than 24 hours after finishing runner up in our championship Susan Dumigan was out playing in the regular Thursday competition at St Nicholas and had a hole in one at the 12th hole!
This is Susan's second hole in one having holed out at the 10th a number of years ago.
Well done Susan!
There was a great display of golf from both players this afternoon in very tricky conditions.
Susan took an early lead but the match was squared at the 5th. Roz took a 2 hole lead into the back 9 which she extended to 3 after the 12th. Susan did get one back but Roz held on to win her first County Championship at the 16th hole.
Great to see so many members, past and present, out supporting the girls.
A beautiful, sunny day today but a tricky breeze for the players to contend with.
Having defeated the top seed in the morning, Susan Dumigan went on to book her place in the semi finals with a win over Jocelyn Faris this afternoon. Susan will now play Jennifer Bell who beat Louise Milligan at the 16th hole. This will be the first appearance in the semi finals for Susan and Jennifer.
Louise and Jennifer
In the bottom half of the draw Audrey Thompson, runner up in 2013 and 2019, beat Alison Jarvie to secure her semi final place where she will play 2022 runner up Roz Purdom after her defeat of Joanne Sharp.
