Congratulations to Karen Marshall (Baberton) who today won the Strathtyrum Trophy over the Eden Course in St Andrews for the fourth time. Karen led the qualifiers into the match play stages before recording 5&4, 2&1 and 3&2 victories to get through to the semi-finals. There she met Christine Appleby from Preston before progressing through to the final, by a 5&4 margin, to meet Ann Ramsay from Kirriemuir. All square after 9 holes, Karen then turned up the heat and took a 4 hole lead before finally closing the match and winning the trophy by 4&2.

Obviously, Captaining the Scottish Girls team for the Home Internationals last week stood Karen in good stead for this weeks competition! Well done Karen.

Karen wins for fourth time
