East of Scotland Championship 2011

East of Scotland Girls' Champion 2011 - Kate McIntosh

Finalists Gabrielle and Kate

Match Report
It was always going to be a close match – the 1st was halved in par and the 2nd in birdies! Kate went 1 up with a birdie 3 at the third. Gabrielle squared the match at the 5th. A birdie 3 at the 8th put Kate 1 up. The 9th was halved in birdie 3s and another birdie for Kate at the 10th put her 2 up. Gabrielle won the par 5, 12th with an excellent birdie, then squared the match at the short 13th. Having put her drive in the left rough near the trees, Kate played a great recovery shot to the back of the green and secured a par to win the hole. With Kate 1 up, Gabrielle’s approach to the 17th was slightly big leaving her a tricky shot back. Kate won the hole and the match 2 & 1.

Congratulations to both Gabrielle and Kate on their excellent golf in a most enjoyable final, played in the best of spirits – it was a pleasure to watch.

Footnote: At the 4th hole, Kate’s drive went zooming up the fairway followed by her driver head which veered to the left into long grass. Luckily it was found and will hopefully be fixed by next week for the Scottish Girls’ Championship.

Thank you to all the girls who played in the Summer Meeting and Championship. Thank you also to all who supported and watched the girls over the two days at Kirkcaldy.
