Results from day 2 of Midland Vets Championship held at Crieff Golf Club - Mon 13th & Tues 14th June. Fife based players took all 4 places in this mornings (Tues 14th) semi-finals of the 2016 Championship played at Crieff in ever changing weather. The morning started in glorious sunshine which last for about 9 holes before intermittent showers arrived. Emma Wilson, Elie and Earlsferry Ladies and 2002 Champion, had a close game with Aileen Baker, Crail which resulted in a win for Emma at 17th. In the second semi Lorna McKinlay’s, Dunnikier Park, excellent putting proved too strong for Lorna Bennett, Ladybank, and won by 5&4.
The final had to contend with increasingly heavy showers of rain and an easterly wind and Lorna got off to a flying start by winning the first 3 holes. Emma battled on didn’t quite manage to take the opportunities to pull back Lorna’s lead. The result was a 7 and 5 win for Lorna.
Having entered the Vets last year, Lorna has had great success in being selected to play for Scottish Vets and Scotland’s senior team as well as reaching last year’s Midland Vets final, but has gone one step further in winning the Championship title this year and will go forward to represent Midlands in the Scottish Vets Championships at Blairgowrie in September.
