Lauren is East of Scotland Girls' Champion 2012

Lauren Whyte, St Regulus, beat Hannah Scott, Broomieknowe, by 4 & 2 in the final of the East of Scotland Girls' Championship today at Murrayfield Golf Club.

Congratulations to both Lauren and Hannah on an excellent final played in the best of spirits.

East of Scotland Girls' Champion 2012 - Lauren Whyte

Finalists, Hannah Scott and Lauren Whyte

Thank you to Mandy for the following match report: 

'On a cold but dry autumn morning at Murrayfield Golf Club, Edinburgh, the final of the East of Scotland Girls' Championship between Hannah Scott of Broomieknowe and Lauren Whyte of St Regulus started with some steady golf as both girls halved the first two holes with pars. At the tricky par 5, third hole, Hannah was the first to take the lead with another par. Lauren quickly fought back winning the fourth hole. However Hannah then won the next two holes to be two up playing the seventh which was halved again in pars.  After Hannah finding the bunker on the eight and misjudging her pitch onto the ninth the two holes were taken by Lauren to take the match to all square after nine holes. 

After Hannah missing the green at the short 10th hole and Lauren's two good shots to hit the eleventh green in two to set up a birdie, Lauren went two up. After two steady holes which were halved Lauren stepped up a pace by taking the fourteenth hole with a birdie to go three up. The fifteenth was then halved with two good birdies. After two good drives up the sixteenth hole Hannah playing first played a good shot pin high onto the green however Lauren followed with an equally good shot. Hannah putting first really needed to sink the putt but just missed,Lauren then finished the match by sinking her putt for another birdie and to take the title by winning the match by 4 and 2. 

Well done to both girls who not only played good golf today but have each had an excellent season of golf.'

Thank you to Murrayfield Golf Club for courtesy of the course for today's final and also for the Summer Meeting and earlier stages of the Championship.

Congratulations to the East District team of Jessica and Emily Dalgetty (Glencorse),Catherine Goodwin (Glenbervie), Charlotte Munro (Gullane), Hannah Scott (Broomieknowe),and Alexandra Tait (St Regulus) for retaining the SLGA Girls' Inter Divisional Championship Trophy over the weekend at Ballumbie Castle Golf Club,  Dundee.

On Saturday morning they played steady golf to beat the North District team by 2 games to 1. However, the afternoon match against the South Team was more of a battle. Determined to win, the second pairing of Jessica and Catherine pulled out a birdie on the last hole to win by 1 hole and in the final pairing of Alexandra and Charlotte, Alexandra played the shot of the day, pin high, onto a two tiered 18th green, to allow Charlotte to hit a great putt to secure them of a 1 hole victory.

Going into Sunday and the final day of play, East District team found themselves up against the West Team who also had won both their matches on the first day. So it was all to play for between the two teams.
Jessica and Catherine after playing so well on the first day lost their match by 7&5. However, it was not long until East District got a win from Alexandra and Charlotte winning by 6&4. So now the match was all square, both teams having won a game. Hannah and Emily having been well down managed to pull it back to all square at the 16th. The 17th was then halved after a fantastic bunker shot and putt from Emily.  Hannah then hit a great drive down the 18th allowing Emily to play a match winning shot six feet from the pin which was the followed by a birdie putt from Hannah to give them the game and secure the match against the West and also to take the championship.

Well done girls !

Unfortunately on Saturday evening Maggie took unwell so unfortunately missed all the exciting play on Sunday. We do wish her well and thank her for all her support and hard work to the run up to the competition.
