The winner of the Handicap Championship was Lauren Watson of Deeside who returned an excellent nett 69, Alyth's Rheanna Thom also returned a 69 but was pipped by Lauren virtue of a better inward half.

Below is the results of the prizewinners.

Due to the excellent scoring the CSS reduced to 71.

Captain Pat Colquhoun and her team did an excellent job in the organising of this event which was enjoyed by all the girls who participated. It is so good to see so many young girls display their golf in an event such as this and they all thoroughly enjoyed the day.

Eilidh Watson notched a half point for Scotland today which brought the team back from 2-1 down to end the day against Wales 4.5 to 4.5. Well done Scotland and look forward to tomorrow!

Ireland and England also ended 4.5 - 4.5 so its all to play for.


Nicola Roberts (Dunblane New) qualified as 15th seed in the St Andrews Junior Ladies Open yesterday with a 3 over par 74 on the Eden Course. Today Nicola played number 2 seed Tegan Seivwright and narrowly missed out on making it to the next round losing out by 2 holes.

Rheanna Thom (Alyth) and Kirsty Brodie (Strathmore) both qualified into the handicap section. Rheanna qualified as 2nd seed but unfortunately was beaten this morning by Charlotte Heeps (Thornbury) 2&1 in another tight match. Kirsty Brodie who took the last spot as seed 8 took on the number 1 seed Sophie Bennett (Southport Old Link) and won through with an impressive 4&2 victory. She will now play in tomorrows semi final against Mirren Fraser (Powfoot).

Today's scratch matches were played over the Eden course and the Handicap matches over Strathyrum course. Should Kirsty make it through to the Final she will play over the Old Course.

Good Luck Kirsty and very well done to Nicola and Rheanna. 


County Team member Eilidh Watson makes her debut appearance in the Home Internationals in Wales this afternoon. She plays Welsh Team player Ella Griffiths who along with her partner Chloe Williams beat Lesley Atkins and Jessica Meek 4&3 this morning in the foursomes matches. Scotland at present are trailing 2-1. However the news so far is that Eilidh is 2 up thru 3.

Keep it up Eilidh!
