Update from Royal Aberdeen

The weather has dominated the Scottish Women’s Championship at Royal Aberdeen. Day 1 had full squads of greenkeepers and helpers desperately trying to keep the greens playable and welly boots the preferred foot wear. Day 2 had to be cancelled completely in strong winds which had flag poles almost bent double at times. The qualifying had to be determined solely on the waterlogged day 1 results. This saw Clara Young qualify for the Championship and Stacey Cameron and Sarah Stichbury qualify for the Clark Rosebowl.

Day 3 again had the players out in teeming rain. In the Clark Rosebowl Stacey lost in the first round 3&2 to C Wilson (Murcar Links) and Sarah Stichbury at the 19th to Wendy Nicholson.

In the Championship Clara won her first round tie against E Watson comfortably 5&4. In the afternoon though she had a battle on her hands when faced with Rachael Polson (Kenmay). Three hole down Clara fought back to square the match at the 18th with a birdie before going on to win at the 19th. congratulations go to Clara in qualifying for the championships and her great play in winning her first two ties. I am sure everyone wishes Clara good luck for today.

Well done also to Stacey and Sarah for qualifying for the Rosebowl in the conditions and in battling performances in the ties.
