HANNAH, LOUISE AND ELAINE WIN THE 2018 SCOTTISH ORDER OF MERIT TITLES
From the Scottish Golf Website The female trio of Hannah McCook, Louise Duncan and Elaine Moffat are celebrating after winning their respective domestic 2018 Order of Merit titles.
Winner of the women’s title for the third year-in-a-row, Hannah McCook’s impressive season included phenomenal back-to-back victories at both the Irish and Welsh Women’s Open Stroke Play Championship, a semi-final finish in the Scottish Women’s Amateur Championship at Elie and a top-5 finish at the St Rule Trophy.
Grantown-on-Spey’s McCook also enjoyed success on the team front, playing a pivotal role in Scotland’s first Women’s Home Internationals victory since 2010 at Ballybunnion, Ireland.
Following her victories, McCook said “I’ve won a couple of University events, but this is the first time I have found some form in an International sense. At the beginning of the year my goal was to win but to have done so twice in a row was just amazing.”
At the girls’ level, West Kilbride’s Louise Duncan topped the rankings after a fantastic season which included victory in the Fairhaven Trophy, runner-up in the Xact Scottish Girls Amateur Championship and a total of seven top-10 finishes.
In the seniors, Elaine Moffat (St Regulus Ladies) came out on top after a fine season which included three victories in six events. Moffat’s wins included the Scottish Senior Women’s Match-play Championship, the Midlands Regional Vets Championship and the SVLGA Championship.
Moffat also made her international debut, representing Scotland in both the European Team Championships and the Senior Ladies Home Internationals.
