Fifteen P&K County Junior Girls turned out for the second of this year's Girls' Coaching Sessions, which was held at Strathmore Golf Centre today.
PGA Professional, Gareth Couzens, put the girls through their paces at the driving range. There was also a putting lesson and a tricky little putting challenge, which Anna Jackson won. Well done Anna!

The girls then headed off to the "wee course" to enjoy 9-holes in the Autumn sun, courtesy of Strathmore Golf Centre. It gave everyone a chance to put into practise what they had learnt at coaching.
Zoe Davidson was presented with the North of Scotland Girls' Handicap Championship trophy, which she won in the summer at Blairgowrie. It was presented to Zoe by our P&K Ladies' County President, Dawn Butchart.
Well done to our Junior Secretary, Gillian Wallace, who organised the day.

Huge Congratulations to Lauren Cameron & Isla Johnston (Pitlochry) who won the 2021 Coronation Foursomes Grand Final at St Andrews.
Isla Johnston, aged only 14, and Lauren Cameron, 22, from Pitlochry Golf Club posted a score of 39 points in the handicap stableford foursomes format to emerge as the winners from 16 pairs at the Eden Course.

Cameron, a 19-handicapper, only returned to the sport last year after a 10 year break, while 22-handicapper Johnston, has been playing at Pitlochry since the age of six. They are one of the youngest ever pairings to have competed.

The fellow Scottish pair of Elizabeth Anderson & Andrea Johnstone (Swanston) finished runners-up on 38 points.

After her win Isla Johnston said:

“We’re so happy, it’s amazing to win. I’ve been playing for eight years now as Pitlochry has a really good junior policy. I like going to new clubs as I play a lot of Pitlochry, so getting a change of scenery is really nice.”

Her playing partner, Lauren Cameron added:

“I think we knew we had a chance today, but I don’t think we would do it. It was great just to reach the Grand Final. I played golf when I was younger, then took 10 years off, and I only started again last year. We both come from families of golfers as well, so that really helps. It’s a great team event and we’ve loved competing in St Andrews and being part of this final.”

The winning duo can now look forward to competing in the Pro-Am for the 2022 AIG Women’s Open at Muirfield thanks to their victory.

Congratulations to Catriona Matthew and the European Solheim Cup Team. What an increadible win for Europe on American soil!

Team Europe retained the Solheim Cup after a thrilling 15-13 victory.

The sights were familiar, well-remembered by every golf fan from Gleneagles two years ago: a victorious Captain, Catriona Matthew, hoisted aloft by her beloved Team Europe on the 18th green, chants of "Olé, Olé, Olé” ringing out in cacophonous celebration, and the European team lifting the trophy overhead, having once again defeated the USA Team.

But this was a vey different victory. It’s only the second time in history that Team Europe has won the Cup on American soil — the only other time was in 2013 at Colorado Golf Club. Also, the European Team led wire-to-wire, looking unflappable in the face of home team advantage and a partisan USA crowd. And, instead of a veteran being the hero, as was the case with Suzann Pettersen in Scotland, it was a rookie from Ireland, Leona Maguire, who led the way for the blue and yellow and a rookie from Finland, Matilda Castren, who drained the crucial putt that sealed the deal and returned the Cup to Europe.

Catriona Matthew is now the only European captain ever to win back-to-back Solheim Cups. Thoroughly impressed with her squad’s ability she said:

“Two years ago at Gleneagles in Scotland was fantastic, but this time in America we were up against it. The Americans were a fantastic team this year. They played hard. We just perhaps holed a few more putts and we’re lucky we came out on top."

“I think we were a team of 12. They all contributed. One person doesn't win it, we needed all 12 of them, so just congratulations to the whole team.”

Huge Congratulations to Galloway County pairing of Teresa & Vanessa Ho, who won the Commonwealth Spoons Final at Dullatur on Monday!
Also, many congratulations to our own Perth & Kinross County pairing of Hilary Cunningham & Morag Brydson (Dunkeld & Birnam) who put together a brilliant round to finish second.

Teresa & Venessa Ho (Newton Stewart) produced a fine back nine to win the 2021 Final over the Carrickstone course at the Dullatur Golf Club near Cumbernauld. The sisters were four over par at the turn but came home in three-under-par to post a nett one-over-par 73 and complete a three-shot victory over Hilary Cunningham & Morag Brydson.

Cunningham & Brydson also made a late move with a nett one on the 12th and a nett two on the 15th to post a nett four-over-par 76 and finish a single shot ahead of Helen Wilson & Sarah Parker (Drumpellier)

Our other Perth & Kinross pairing of Janette Kennedy & Kay Fleming (Blair Atholl) were also on great form. They finished tied 7th with a nett 79.
