CARLY LOSES BY ONE SHOT
Fellow Scottish Team mate and defending Champion Krystle Caithness (St Regulus)pipped Carly Booth (Auchterarder) once again for the title in the SLGA St Leonards Under-16 girls' open stroke-play championship at Strathtyrum Course, St Andrews on Friday.
Due to the weather conditions the event was reduced to 27 holes.
Carly was on great form as she birdied the fifth and had pars at the rest of the first six holes. But unfortunately she then bogeyed the seventh and eighth and that cost the County Team player her first national title.
Past Champion of the event and our County Champion Roseanne Niven was fifth.
Scotland No 1 Team - represented by Carly, Roseanne and Krystal - retained the team title with a total of 223 - nine shots ahead of England - with Scotland 2 - third on 235.
County Junior Member Lucy Gilmour (Strathmore) who is currently one of our girls who is enjoying sponsorship at Gleneagles through P&K won the Skills Test from her age group.
Well done girls!
