Many congratulations to Gabrielle Macdonald (Craigielaw) who finished second and Rachael Watton (Mortonhall) who was tied third in the Paul Lawrie Scottish Schools Championship held over the Buddon and Burnside Courses at Carnoustie yesterday. Rachael was the tied leader with eventual winner Aisla Summers (Carnoustie Ladies) after the morning round on the Buddon Course with a score of 71 (CSS 68), while Gabrielle lay 7 shots behind. I’m not sure what Gabrielle had for lunch but that lead was soon whittled down in the afternoon on the Burnside Course as she shot a 3 under CSS, 68 to jump up to second place and finish one shot behind Aisla. Rachael had a second round 77 which left her, tied, in third place. Great golf and great scoring – well done girls!

Gabrielle second and Rachael third!
