Three in a row as Mar­garet takes ti­tle

Argyllshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

Saturday saw the ladies take to the course for the first day of their cham­pi­onship.

The weather could not have been bet­ter at Lochgilp­head Golf Club and, while nice dry fair­ways gave a good run on the balls, it also meant it was harder to con­trol on the greens.

Mar­garet MacKin­non was def­i­nitely on her game with level par for the first nine. She lost her stride a lit­tle on the in­ward nine but still fin­ished with a gross 76, giv­ing her an eight-stroke lead over Kath­leen Young.

Sunday saw equally good weather as the ladies set off on round two. There was no way Mar­garet could be beaten and scor­ing a gross 77 on day two made her ladies’ cham­pion for the third year in a row, beat­ing Kath­leen by a mas­sive 19 strokes.

The sec­ondary Stable­ford com­pe­ti­tion was won by Fiona McLeod with 76 points, beat­ing Ele Hunter by two points. The com­pe­ti­tion was rounded off with a photo shoot of the win­ners with drinks and fresh cream scones cour­tesy of new player Kirsty Flana­gan.

This week­end sees the first two rounds of the gents’ cham­pi­onship while the ladies play for their June medal on Saturday and then head to Tar­bert Ladies’ Open on Sunday.
