ELAINE MOFFAT WINS SCOTTISH SENIORS' TITLE

Elaine Moffat (St. Regulus), who won the Midland Vets Championship at Kinross on 19th June completed a wonderful double when she won the 2018 Scottish Senior Ladies' Championship at Prestwick St. Nicholas G.C. on Friday 29th June. As with the Midland Vets Championship, it was the  first time Elaine had played in the event.

Elaine's performance throughout was classy.  She qualified comfortably in tied 5th position after rounds of 76 and 77 and eased past current Senior Internationalist, Gillian Kyle (East Renfrewshire), by a 4&3 margin in the first round of the match play.  In the quarter final she disposed of South African visitor, Sonja Bland, by the bigger margin of 5&4 before going on to dominate her semi final match against a tough opponent in former Scottish Champion and Curtis Cup player, Maureen Richmond (Royal Liverpool), emerging victorious by 3&2 and setting up a final against current Senior Internationalist and last year's runner-up Sheena Wood (Aberdeen Ladies).Elaine got off to a great start in the final with an eagle at the 4th hole and was two up after seven holes. Sheena fought back and not only eliminated the two hole gap but went ahead with a birdie at the 12th.Elaine's reputation as a great match player has been earned over many years and it was no surprise when she responded to the challenge with her own birdie at the next hole.  A bogey by Sheena at the 14th followed by another birdie by Elaine at the 15th restored her two hole lead and although Sheena cut that to one with a brave birdie at the 17th, a safe par 3 at the 18th was enough to give Elaine victory and the Championship title by 2 holes.

Fife take 3rd place at Intercounty Matches 2018


FIFE TAKE THIRD PLACE IN EAST DIVISION INTER-COUNTY MATCHES

The Fife County Team of Hannah Braidwood, Brogan Clark, Susan Jackson, Jocelyn Mackie, Lorraine Morrow, Gillian Paton and Karin Sharp together with loyal supporters and caddies Susie Robertson, Irene Morrison, Evelyn Hamilton, Joan Peden, Christine Steedman, Margaret Steele, Shona Hutchison and Joan Tulloch enjoyed three lovely days this week on the superb links of Dunbar in the East Division Jamboree coming third behind winners Midlothian and second-place Stirling and Clackmannanshire and just escaping the wooden spoon with an emphatic win over East Lothian on the last day.

The golf course could not have been better and whilst the weather was not the heat wave promised, it was perfect for golf with the ever-changing breeze posing different questions of the players each round.

Fife faced their toughest challenge on the first day against Midlothian and, although they made a promising start moving ahead in the foursomes in the early parts of the rounds, they could not maintain the pressure against the strong opposition and were defeated at the end of the day despite a great 4&2 win by new Champion, Gillian Paton, over Scottish Internationalist and past Scottish Champion Gabrielle MacDonald.

The foursomes were also Fife’s downfall on day two against Stirling and Clackmannan and, although they took the afternoon singles, it was not enough to avoid a second defeat.  Star of the singles was Hannah Braidwood who was making her debut for Fife and who played faultlessly in winning her match.

Everything came good for Fife on the third day with wins in both the foursomes and singles and special mention must be made again of Gillian Paton who led the team with an 8&7 win and Hannah Braidwood who emphasised  her talent for match play with a gritty 3&1 win over a much more experienced opponent.

The spirit in the Fife team was tremendous and everyone gave their all.  With a little more luck at the right time, the results could have been different but the team is now looking  forward to next year when the matches will be held at Ladybank on 1st to 3d July.

Match Results:

Day 1:  East Lothian halved with Stirling & Clackmannan

             Midlothian beat Fife 6.5 - 2.5

Day 2:  Stirling & Clackmannan beat Fife 5.5 – 3.5

             Midlothian beat East Lothian 5.5 – 3.5

Day 3:  Midlothian beat Stirling & Clackmannan 8 – 1

              Fife beat East Lothian 7 – 2

The winners, Midlothian,will play in the Scottish County Finals at Kilmacolm GC on 14-16 September 2018.
