Kylie Walker qualifies for the matchplay stages in Spain

Michele Thomson (McDonald Ellon) and Kylie Walker (Buchanan Castle) were among the 32 qualifiers for the match-play stages from a starting field of 99 in the Spanish women's open amateur golf championship for the Queen's Cup at La Reserva Golf Club, Cadiz today.
In windy conditions for the second qualifying round, Curtis Cup team candidate Michele actually improved by one shot on the first day with a 76 for 153 to be the 15th seed with a first-round tie against the 18th qualifier, Sonia Cologan (Spain).
Kylie went back from an opening 74 to an 80 but her total of 154 gave her 20th place in the match-play draw. She will play England's experienced international, Kerry Smith, the Waterlooville chef, in the first round.
Rachel Connor, daughter of the Scots-born Manchester Golf Club professional, qualified with a 76 for 153. She will play Josephine Jansson (Sweden).
Other Brits who qualified were Breanne Loucks (Wales), Holly Aitchison (England) and Kerry Smith (England), all on 152, and Sian James (England) on 155.
Rachael Livingstone (Musselburgh Old) and Jane Turner (Mortonhall) missed the cut (two on 157 got through, five on the same mark did not). Rachael had a repeat 81 for 162 while Jane had an 81 for 167.
Bad news for the GB&I Curtis Cup team selectors who meet next week to choose the eight to face the United States over the Old Course, St Andrews at the end of May was that only three of their Elite Squad - Thomson, Loucks and Smith - made it through while some of the players regarded as near-certainties for selection failed to qualify in Spain - Liz Bennett (157 but eliminated on a second-round comparison), Naomi Edwards (158) and Florentyna Parker (159).

Spanish Amateur Open- Kylie Walker does well in the 1st Round

This week's Spanish women's open amateur golf championship at La Reserva, Cadiz is the last chance for the LGU's Elite Squad to impress the GB&I selectors before the Curtis Cup team of eight is chosen next week for the match against the Americans over the Old Course, St Andrews at the end of May.
But all the Curtis Cup aspirants trailed behind 21-year-old former Scottish schoolgirls champion Kylie Walker (Buchanan Castle), - not a member of the Elite Squad - in today's first round. Kylie shot a two-over-par 74 to be sharing fifth place behind the Spanish wonder girl, Carlota Ciganda.
It would be wrong to class this as a flash in the pan performance by Miss Walker because she played very well in the Portuguese women's open amateur championship two or three weeks ago when she finished joint seventh.
Ciganda, one of the world's top-rated female amateurs with a handicap of +5.4, won the British women's open amateur championship at Alwoodley, Leeds last June and she was a runaway winner of the recent Portuguese women's open amateur title.
Today the slim 17-year-old, who will have her pick of the top American colleges for a golf scholarship in the autumn, set a cracking pace over a course only she seemed to find comparatively easy.
Carlota, from the bull-run Spanish city of Pamplona, had a four-under-par round of 69 to open up a four-stroke lead from one Spanish and two French competitors on 73.
England's Kerry Smith, who is one of the LGU Elite Squad, led the rest of the Brits in the field of 99, all of whom had to have at least a handicap of scratch before they could get into the championship. She had a 75.
Michele Thomson from McDonald Ellon, who gave Carlota Ciganda her toughest tie in last summer's "British" - she lost on the 18th green, had a 77. Michele finished third behind Ciganda and Florentyna Parker in the "Portuguese" and has had some intensive one-on-one coaching from Neil Marr since then.
Other Scots' scores were an 81 by Rachael Livingstone (Musselburgh Old) and an 86 by Jane Turner (Mortonhall).

Leader Board (first day)
1 .- Carlota Ciganda (Spain) 69
2 .- Alexandra Vilatte (France) 73
+ .- Goumard Audrey (France) 73
+ .- Laura Gonzalez-Escallón (Belgium) 73
5 .- Ane Urchegui (Spain) 74

Milngavie Golf Club Duo are Champions of D&A County

Helen Burnet, Kay McColl,Katy MacAuley
Katy MacAuley and Anna Telfer
Anna Telfer and Katy MacAulay(pictured left) of Milngavie GC captured the first trophy of the season when they won the Dunbartonshire and Argyll Ladies County Winter Foursomes on Sunday February 24th.
The competition runs from October through to March and Katy and Anna have played 4 rounds on different courses in all kinds of weather.
The final was played over the 'neutral' course of Cardross and their opponents were Kay McColl and Helen Burnet of Hilton Park (pictured above with Katy and Anna)
Anna said 'Our hearts sank when we realised that we were to be playing to 18 winter greens as we had to give 12 shots. However, we pitched and putted really well and that was the key factor in the very wet conditions.'
The final result was a 6 and 5 victory to the Milngavie pair.

SLGA Squad lose at Dunbar

A SLGA squad took on the Dunbar Men's League team over a very cold and windswept Dunbar links today. The format was four-ball, better-ball, with the girls playing from the white tees. They received two strokes (the difference in the SSSs)
With the wind at their backs on the outward half, it was up to the girls to build up a lead as after the turn it was quite a battle against the elements, and a struggle to get any length.

Pamela Pretswell (Bothwell Castle) and Laura Murray (Alford) were the only members of SLGA squad to record a win when they beat Michael Creasey and John Archibald by 4&3.
The Northern Counties combination of Kelsey MacDonald (Nairn Dunbar) and Sammy Vass (Tain) halved with Stephen Easingwood and Darren Kilfara.
Megan Briggs (Kilmacolm) and Rebecca Wilson (Monifeith) lost by 4&2 to Tam Caldwell and Ali Thomson.
Lesley Hendry (Largs Routenburn) and Gillian Monteith (Portpatrick Dunskey) lost by 4&3 to Scott Knowles and Stephen Simmants.
Alexandra Bushby (Strathmore) and Emma Fairnie (Dunbar) lost by 4&3 to Brian Reid and Gary Queen

County Medals run as Open Days with different CSS for Home and Away Players

This is just some information for the Counties (only) that are using Club 2000 software to run their Competitions. At the SLGA AGM I enquired if a County Medal would be the classified the same as an Open Day for the calculation of a different CSS for the home players and away players and the answer was YES. Since then we were informed at the handicap seminars that by ticking a visitors box this would allow your record to be changed. However on trying this it still did not work. I have since then emailed Glyn Roberts (Head of Club 2000) and this was his reply last week
With regard to your query above, we have discussed this with SLGA and SGU (amongst others) and we have agreed with the various unions that we will enable County sections to change the Visitor marker when amending records. Whilst we have coded this, we haven't yet released it. I think we probably will release the next build later this week though. All users who are connected will automatically get the update. The next build will be v10.2 build 7, so keep an eye on the version details in the lower left corner of the splash screen when launching the software. Once it changes to build 7 you should be able to amend a record and alter the Visitor check box quite easliy. This update was done this week
I have since checked it out and all works well ---- Hopefully we will never need to use this ruling since it is unlikely that a County Medal will have 20 or more "HOME" players playing --- although it is possible.

Volunteer for the Ladies Scottish Open at The Carrick

Mrs Lynn Mitchell 46 Queen Victoria Drive Glasgow. G14 9DJ. Tel. 0141 954 9427 07711 340897 (Mob)

The Aberdeen Asset Management Ladies Scottish Open The Carrick at Cameron House 1st – 3rd May 2008
A very Happy New Year for 2008 to everyone! I am delighted to tell you that it has been officially announced that there will be a repeat of the Ladies Scottish Open at the Carrick both under new sponsorship and earlier in the season.
Once again I have been asked to put together a team of volunteers to undertake a wide range of duties. In its inaugural year at the Carrick, I was extremely grateful for all your support and assistance throughout the bad weather and long shifts. However this year I hope to adopt a three-shift system. In order to organise this I do need as many volunteers as possible. So if you know of any others who might be interested, please let me know and I can send them details. The duties are as follows:
a) Static Greenside Scorers at every third hole exit, to take the scores from the players and relay them to Score Control. There will be no walking scorers, except possibly for the last 4-6 matches on the Saturday.
b) Ladies to operate the 6 Leader Boards around the golf course.
c) Ladies to operate the Main Score Board in the tented village.
d) Score Board Carriers. There is the possibility of having some carry boards with the games this year (a gasp of horror!). However it has been suggested that the boards be strapped onto a pull or battery trolley, which means we “wheel” rather than carry them! Those walking with games will have the opportunity to see the golf played by our top European and American players.

If you are interested in helping this year, I attach a form (See link at the end of this article) for you to indicate - Which duties/slots you would like to cover (I promise to work on shorter shifts) and Information I need concerning uniform sizes (please tell me both your lady’s and comparable gent’s size e.g. size 14 / gents M)
Please return the form to me at the above address as soon as possible but no later than 10th February. If unable to help, a nil response would be appreciated.

I look forward to hearing from you.

With kind regards,
Lynn Mitchell, Chief Scorer.

I thought you might like to get the update on the Ladies Scottish Open. Lots of positive improvements on site since last years' tournament:

1. New practice putting green being constructed on the site of last year's tented village.
2. New practice area around the ground by the 2nd hole green and 3rd hole Tee under construction.
3. The tented village (possibly the site of our score control, Ray's Tent) will be situated where the practise nets were last year.
4. And a BIG BONUS! There will be parking on site in the field on the right hand side of the driveway into the Carrick. I.e. between the security manned gate and road. NO PARK AND RIDE! This area should take about 400 cars.

Report from Helen Faulds;
As you can imagine the course was pretty difficult with flags tucked in behind huge bunkers and over water. It made me play very negative which doesn’t get good scores.
Weather was disappointing but still managed to enjoy it. Jen not well at all and had a few early nights. Hopefully she will get sorted now she is home.
