County squad member Roseanne Niven (Crieff) completed her first tournament on the college golf circuit in the USA this week. Roseanne, who had to pre-qualify to make the University of California Berkeley team scored rounds of 79,79 & 80 to finish tied 51st on +25. The tournament held at the Palos Verdes Golf Club attracted a very strong field including Tara Delaney, Belen Mozo and Anna Nordqvist. The winner of the tournament was Misun Cho from Pepperdine University who finished on +5.

Roseanne emailed to say "they say the course is the 'US open of college golf' because the greens were ridiculously fast! I could have scored better if I hadn't had so many double bogies but never mind it was fun!"

Well done Roseanne and we wish you all the best for the next tournament.

County Squad member Annabel Niven (Crieff) was selected for SLGA Winter Training - Under 15s Squad - this is what she says about her experiences -

"I was lucky enough to be selected for Scottish coaching. This kept me motivated during the winter months and it was very beneficial. I enjoyed both my weekends I went to and had good fun. We covered all aspects of the game, including short game, long game and we also played 9 holes on the course both weekends. We also covered statistics and general preparation for competitions. All the things that I learnt will be useful for the future and I thoroughly enjoyed my weekend. "

Well done Annabel!
