DAILY MAIL FOURSOMES

P&K MEMBERS LOSE OUT IN THE  SEMI FINALS OF THE DAILY MAIL FOURSOMES

P&K members Carol and Gwen Lambie have just contacted me with the sad news that they lost their semi-final match this morning against Sandiway.

Carol and Gwen certainly did not go down without a fight they took the match all the way to the 18th green. To lose out so close to the final is very disappointing for them both. Gwen said she was 'gutted' however I think they should both be very proud of themselves getting so far in what is deemed to be the biggest national competition in the world, where, according to the Daily Mail website, some 190,000 players take part in the qualifying stages. So very well done to make it to the semi finals.

Enjoy the remainder of your time in Wales.

SCOTTISH GIRLS (CLOSE) AMATEUR CHAMPIONSHIP

The Scottish Girls' (Close) Amateur Championship is underway at Eyemouth Golf Club with yesterday (Tuesday 13 July) the first qualifying round. The top 32 girls' qualifying for the main Championship following the second qualifying round which will be played today (Wednesday 14 July). The next 16 players will qualify for the second flight to play for the Ansley Reid Salver.

Rachael Watton, Mortonhall leads the Scottish Girls' qualifying at Eyemouth Golf Club after the first round. Her level par 73 is three shots ahead of Gillian Scanlon, Hamilton and four clear of Lesley Atkins, Gullane.

Two girls are competing from P&K they are Eilidh Watson (Muckhart) and Hannah Robb (Strathmore). Hannah kindly contacted me with an update of the scores and conditions at Eyemouth. She said the putting was particularly difficult with fast greens and tricky pin positions making the scoring hard. Hannah returned a scratch score of 88 which at present places her just outside the qualifying in joint 34th position, Eilidh returned a 83 placing her tied 18th.

So all to play for. Good luck girls and I will try to keep you all informed of the scores today.

Unfortunately we only had one representative in the Championship and two in the H/cap section of the North of Scotland they were Emily Ogilvy who qualified in 5th position with a 77 in the scratch section and our County Captain Lenore Kyle and Sandy Bushby who qualified in the Handicap section.

Emily was drawn against Rebecca Wilson and unfortunately lost the match 4&3, Lenore also lost her first round match against Gail Wilson 2&1 however Sandy won her first match against youngster Kristen MacCallum 1 hole but unfortunately lost to Ann Hay in the afternoon match 3&2.

The final of the event takes place today but as of yet, I do not have the results.

EMILY RECORDS A 76

Congratulations to Emily Oglivy who returned a highly commendable 76, this result places Emily tied 24th. 

Included in Emily's score yesterday were two eagles. Emily told me one of her eagles was on a 490 yard par 5 where she hit driver, 6 iron and a single putt. When I asked how she played she commented that she really enjoyed her round even (as she puts it) she was three over.

Well done Emily, hope you have a great round today as well.

Unfortunately Roseanne did not fair as well and returned a 91, our best wishes go to her today.
