In freezing cold, blustery conditions, the Junior Training Squad turned out for their first coaching session of 2009 with Mark Berrie at the Braid Hills Driving Range. This year, the squad has been divided into two groups which each have a 45-min coaching session. The girls seemed to enjoy the session and the smaller group format. Our thanks to Mark for his time this morning.

As well as the coaching, 6 girls braved the weather for the monthly 9-holes round the Princes Course. We were thankful that it stayed sunny and the sleet did not come until after they had all finished but a lot of jumping and running around was needed to keep warm. Despite all of this, the girls all played really well and hit some fantastic shots. The general feeling was that more putting practice was required! My thanks to May Hardy for organinsing today and to Claire MacDonald for her help. The results were:

Heather Laing net 46.5

1st Carys Hardy 62
2nd Caitlin Turner 63
3rd Emma Morrison 67

Congratulations to Heather and Carys!

Remember the Princes Course league starts next month and runs until August. Points are awarded for turning up, for the handicap winner and for 1st, 2nd and 3rd non-handicap place. So come along and join in!
