Midlothian made a great start to the Scottish County Finals at Dumfries & County Golf Club today by beating Ayrshire 6-3 in the opening day. We won the morning foursomes 2-1 and the afternoon singles 4-2 in torrential rain. There were some interesting situations at times both for players and caddies, with jackets caught in lockers, balls landing on brolleys, insect bites and a few other sticky moments, but all escaped unharmed in the end.
The team fought hard with their usual team spirit in very testing conditions. We play Perth & Kinross tomorrow.
