Championships – Day 1 – Gullane

We were treated to some great golf and great weather for the first day of the 2018 Championships. In the morning matches Dawn Young raced off to a 7&5 win in the first match and further down the draw Anne Marshall had a surprise 4&2 win over last year’s runner up Kay Lannin, but five of the remaining matches in the Championship went to the 18th with the last match going to the 19th.

In the Handicap Quaich the matches were hard fought but not so close. The last match between Jean McNeill and Morag Nicholson was notable for a hole in one from Morag at the 13th on her way to her first round win. Well done Morag.

In the afternoon Matches our last two Captains went head to head in a close match that went all the way to the 19th before Barbars secured a place in the semi-finals. Last year’s winner Jill McNicoll had a decisive 5&3 win to secure her place and a match with Barbara. In the bottom half of the draw newcomers Audrey Dunnett played well to beat Hazel Suanders while Karen Fullerton who had earlier put out Sue Penman had a convincing win over Fiona MacIver. The two newcomers meet each other in the other semi final.

In the Handicap Quaich June Elliot who had earlier put out her fellow Glen member Linda Henderson now secured a place in he final with a win over Pat Phillips. Lorna Thomson meantime had a good match with Morag Nicholson winning out at the 16th 3&2.

We look forward to watching more great golf in the sunshine tomorrow. The morning semi finals start at 9am and Handicap Quaich at 9.16. The Championship final starts at 2pm. Why not come along and watch? The trophies will be presented in the clubhouse following the final.
