The Regional Finals of the Wee Wonders Championships were held on Tuesday on the Craigend Course at the Ladies’ Golf Club in Troon. I would like to thank Junior Member Julia Smith’s father, Iain, for the following report:
“The 3 Midlothian Juniors who had qualified in different area events played valiantly on a tight Craigend Course (the Ladies’ Golf Course) at Troon on Tuesday. It was a very hot day with some fantastic golf being played. Lisa Macpherson came in a brilliant second in her age category (5-8 year olds). In the 9-10 year old age category, Julia Smith popped her flag, after her allotted 36 shots, into the cup on the 8th hole to tie for 3rd place but fell back to 4th place on the better inward half countback. The third junior star, Emma Morrison, kept it going and popped her flag down onto the 7th green.”
Well done to all of you – a fantastic effort which shows that Midlothian golf has some very promising up and coming juniors who are already making their names known. I hope you all enjoyed your experience and look forward to hearing all about it next time we meet.
