Carly lost out to fellow LGU Elite Squad member Michelle Thomson 4&3 in todays 2nd round of the Jones/Doherty women's amateur match-play championship at Coral Ridge Country Club, near Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
Commiserations Carly.


Carly is into the next round of the presitigious Jones/Doherty match-play tournament at Coral Ridge County Club near Fort Lauderdale today. Carly played American Maggie Weder and won comfortably 5-3. She will now meet her fellow LGU Elite squad team mate Aberdeenshire's Michelle Thomson, in the next round which will be held today. It is unfortunate for the team mates to meet so early in the match-play stages however I am sure both players will give the match 100%.

I will try to keep you up to date as soon as I have any info.
Good luck Carly!

The weather was awful for our very first winter coaching session at Gleneagles. The driving range was laden with snow all morning however the persistent rain soon got rid of it and by afternoon it was green!

Eight girls attended they were, in the morning session, Jillian Milne, Fiona Robertson, Eve Muirhead and Sal Shepherd and the afternoon sessions attendees were Carol Muir, Jane Yellowlees, Gwen Lambie and Laura Walker. Officials Dawn, Lenore and Shona watched on as coaches Andrew and Richard put the girls through there paces. Emily Ogilvy also came along to join us however was unable to take part due to a shoulder injury. We wish her a speedy recovery.

Despite the weather the day was very successful and all the girls gained a great deal from the day. The next senior event is a practice day at Downfield on February 16th.

Next day at Gleneagles is Junior Elite Squad training on February 10th. We are hoping for a better day!

Here are some photo's from yesterday:
