Com­pet­ing with the ladies no hand­i­cap for Eilidh

Argyllshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

Last week saw the fi­nal rounds of two com­pe­ti­tions for the ladies at Lochgilp­head Golf Club.

On Tues­day Septem­ber 15 the last round of the nine-hole eclec­tic com­pe­ti­tion was won by Kath­leen Young with 19 points, but the over­all win­ner of the six rounds was ju­nior girl Eilidh Flana­gan with a fan­tas­tic 28 points.

This is Eilidh’s first year play­ing with the ladies and she chose to play off a 36 hand­i­cap to al­low her to com­pete in the com­pe­ti­tions. She not only won this com­pe­ti­tion but has also re­duced her hand­i­cap. Club mem­bers have no doubt that hers is a name they will be see­ing on more win­ning lists in the fu­ture.

The other fi­nal was the Ladies Char­ity Cup. This is played over four rounds and the win­ner chooses the char­ity to which the en­try fees are do­nated. The win­ner on the day with 19 points was Jane Hep­burn, who was also over­all win­ner with 25 points. Jane started the sea­son well and fell away a wee bit but came back for a fan­tas­tic fi­nale.

Jane has cho­sen Blood Can­cer UK to re­ceive the funds so a cheque for £155 is on its way to it.

The gents, mean­while, played the Septem­ber Medal which was won by Andy Law with 62 strokes, beat­ing Alex MacAu­lay by one.
