SLGA Order of Merit Title

From the SLGA Website

Kelsey MacDonald (Nairn Dunbar) has confirmed her status as Scotland’s best amateur by clinching the Scottish Ladies’ Golfing Association’s Order of Merit title.
Winner of the Scottish National and the Scottish Under-21 Open Strokeplay Championships and runner-up in the British Amateur, the 20-year-old had a terrific individual season.
She also proved to be a great team player, helping Scotland win the Home Internationals for the first time since 1991 and leading the side to a bronze medal at the European Championships in Spain in July.
“I’m over the moon to win the Order of Merit,” said Kelsey, who has just returned from representing Scotland at the World Amateur Team Championship in Argentina last month. “I won the girls’ title two years ago, and the title is a reward for consistency.
“I have had a really busy season, so to be crowned the best overall in Scotland is a great honour.”
Kelsey finished with 2,900 points, with last year’s winner, Louise Kenney (Pitreavie), taking second place with 2,380 points. Laura Murray (Alford) was third on 1,955.
Jane Turner (Craigielaw) and Curtis Cup player Pamela Pretswell (Bothwell Castle) filled the next two places on 1,875 and 1,776 points respectively.
Kelsey and Eildih Briggs (Kilmacolm), who won the Girls’ Order of Merit title, will receive their awards at the Scottish Golf Dinner in February 2011
