Many congratulations to Jane Turner (Craigielaw) who successfully defended the British Universities and Colleges Women’s Stroke-Play Championship being held, this week, at Dundonald Links. Having won the title 12 months ago in Nottinghamshire, Jane left it until the 71st hole, this year, to take the lead and finished on 4 under par. One behind the leader after the first round, she drew level after two, scoring 2 under the CSS. However, in round 3 she dropped to 2 off the lead but came back strongly in the final round with another 2 under the CSS to pick up first place by 1 shot.
Jane’s attention stays in Ayrshire as she tees up at the end of next week on Troon Portland and Troon Old courses in the Helen Holm Scottish Open Stroke-Play Championship. She is joined in that by Gabrielle Macdonald (Craigielaw) and Rachael Watton (Mortonhall). Good luck to the girls for that event.
