to County Secretary, Dawn Butchart who battled through awful weather conditions at Downfield on Saturday to win the best scratch in the 2005 Ladies Open. Dawn's score of 80 against a CSS of 76 was very exciting ahead of the Inter Counties Jamboree at Elgin at the end of June.

County Champion and Team Member Carly Booth came rocketing into the St Rule Trophy reckoning at St Andrews with the lowest score of the second round - a fantastic three-under-par 73. This added to her Saturday score of 79 over the New Course gives her a total of 152 and puts her in joint third place, only three behind the leader, Anne Laing, with one round still to go over the Old Course. Unfortunately Carly had a two-stroke penalty imposed on Saturday as her caddie-dad Wally stood directly behind her as she was driving. Without this Carly would only have been one shot off the pace after two rounds.
Carly showed great character by not letting the incident upset her and went on the play a brilliant second round. Carly was out in one under par 37 with birdies at the long fifth and ninth and a bogey at the sixth. She had an eagle 3 at the par-5 13th, dropped a shot at the 16th but birdied the Road Hole 17th which is a par-5 from the LGU tee. Carly played an excellent approach shot, giving herself a chance of another eagle however she missed the 8 foot putt and was left with only a tap in for a birdie 4.
With one round to go there is all to play for!

Her scoring was:
OUT: 4 5 4 5 4 5 4 3 3 - 37 (one under par).IN: 4 3 4 3 5 4 5 4 4 - 36 (two under par)

Another county Team member and former County Champion Roseanne Niven was also played well with a 82 over the new course and a 77 over the old course this morning.

I will try to keep you posted on the eventual outcome of the days play.

Friday, May 20, 2005


Sally Watson (Elie & Earlsferry) was once again under par winning 4 and 3 against 19-year-old Team Member Emily Ogilvy. Emily lost the first after finding herself bunkered and although Emily matched Sally's birdies at the fifth and sixth, Sally's third birdie of the outward half, a 3 at the eighth, put the younger player three up. The on form Sally went on to birdie the 12th, which put her four up.

Emily Ogilvy did P&K proud when Scottish Internationalist Louise Kenny lost out by 2 and 1 to Emily (Muckhart) in a battle between the two American college players. Louise Kenny has been an outstanding player for Iowa State University for the past two seasons. Emily only 19 is now beginning to show her true potential. Emily birdied the first two holes and although Louise pulled back to all square at the 10th hole, Emily showed great spirit with birdies at the 14th and 15th and eventually won the match 2&1.
A fantastic show of golf, well done.
Emily now goes head to head with the 13-year-old overnight sensation of the tournament, Sally Watson from South Queensferry.

Carly Booth played outstanding golf at the weekend to win her first ever County Championship. On Saturday Carly won both her matches against Joan Ritchie(Auchterarder) and Nicki Harding (Craigiehill) which lead to a fantastic semi-final against reigning County Champion Roseanne Niven (Crieff). It was a superb match with birdies and eagles to win holes it was a pleasure to watch both the girls in action. However there has to be one winner and Carly came through to win 3&2.

On the other half of the draw Emma Napper played extremely well to win both her matches on Saturday against Gillian Wallce (Glenisla) and Shona Leighton(Alyth) which led to her semi final against the No 1 seed and fellow clubmate Avril Ker (Craigiehill). On a very close fought match Emma won by 2 holes.

Emma and Carly tee off at 11.52 and with the sun shining down, both played some great golf. Carly won the championship on the 14th green 5&4.

The Gibb Trophy was won by Annabel Niven (Crieff) who is certainly looks like being a bright new star for County Golf. Annabel played beautfully all weekend winning her first match against Maggie Bruce (Alyth) 4&3 then in the afternoon she won against the number one seed Susan Ogg 7&5. The final was against Alison Ker (Craigiehill) which turned out to be an extremly close match with some fantastic golf shoots played it was a joy to watch. Annabelle won on the 18th by one hole.
