Day 1

We were met by an overcast day at Balbirnie Park, as we took on Fife. As the foursomes pairings set out, behind Midlothian V Stirling & Clackmannanshire, the skies brightened. The first match out was Louise Martin & Carys Irvine V Gillian Paton & Lucy Simpson – a closely fought match which Fife closed out on the 15th hole, winning 4&3. Match 2 saw Abby Nisbet & Jill McNicoll go 3 down against Elaine Moffat & Claire Hargan. The girls fought hard to take the match down 18 where Abby put a great 5 iron to 7 feet, winning the hole and halving the game. The final pairing of the morning, Kirsten Ireland & Jenny Sewell were up against Evanna Hynd & Lucy Simpson. Another great game with the girls losing to an extremely steady pairing on the 14th, 5&4.

 

The afternoon singles matches headed out onto the course in the sunshine. Leading the way, was Ellie playing against Gillian Paton. Some fantastic golf was on show for those out on course watching, with Gillian winning 6&4. Rookie 1, Jenny Sewell, was victorious against Evanna Hynd (3&2) and rookie 2, Abby Nisbet was victorious against Claire Hargan (5&4). The final three games were all nip an tuck, Jill lost on the 18th to Lori Gilfillan, Carys on the 17th to Lucy Simpson and Louise on the 17th to Lucy Renton.
