After the foursomes were halved it was all to play for in this afternoon’s singles. The match was always in the balance and two wins from the first two matches thanks to Clara and Grace put us in the driving seat. Stirling and Clackmannanshire fought back with two wins against Kay and Sue. Dianne had a very close match losing on the 17th.
A big thank you to all the players and caddies who played their part in giving us this exciting, nail biting round of golf.
On the tee Jill McNicoll
Jill who had been 3 down at one stage fought back to 1 down with 2 to play. At the 17th, the shot of the day, a fantastic long putt won the hole.
The only game to go up the 18th saw Jill remain calm while her opponent got into trouble in the rough, a really good approach and an excellent putt made sure of the win and a halved match overall.
