15th – 17th September, Glenbervie Golf Club.
The tournament started today with Dumfriesshire against Perth & Kinross and us against Renfrewshire. The format is match play with the morning matches being three foursomes and the afternoon six singles.
Today was a bright, clear, sunny day and the views, across to the Ochil Hills, from the first tee were stunning. Gabrielle MacDonald and Alison McBride led off against Megan Briggs and Carol Whyte, followed by Karen Marshall and Jennifer Bryans against Jennifer Rankine and Donna Jackson with the third match being Louise Fraser and Rachael Livingstone taking on Gillian Kyle and Liz Stewart. Unfortunately the first and second pairs lost whilst Louise and Rachael secured a half to ensure we went into lunch with a half point on the board.
Karen Ferguson-Snedden v Megan Briggs lost 3/1
Gabrielle MacDonald v Gillian Kyle won 4/3
Hannah Darling v Jennifer Rankine won 1up
Alison McBride v Donna Jackson won 5/4
Karen Marshall v Denise Cowan won 4/3
Louise Fraser v Carol Whyte lost 2/1
Midlothian 4.5 – Renfrewshire 4.5
Special mentions for Karen Ferguson-Snedden for taking Megan to the 17th and for Hannah for coming back from two down to win on the 18th.
Dumfriesshire drew with Perth & Kinross so all teams start with equal points tomorrow.
Midlothian play Dumfriesshire tomorrow with the first tee time at 0900. Come and support us.
