|Scottish Vets Winning Team|
It was a thrilling day at Troon Portland today when the Scottish Vets team set out in freezing conditions to try to ensure they continued the previous day’s winning ways.
They were well aware that a 2 point lead was a very narrow margin when there were 8 points at stake for the Mary McKenna Trophy. Even in the testing conditions there were strong performances on both sides. Click Here for the four ball report

Final result: Scotland 6 1/2 Ireland 5 1/2
Over the two days, everyone played a vital part in this win but it would be remiss of us not to mention that Lesley Lloyd halved her match after being 2 down with 2 to play, against Carol Wickham , who is considered one of the strongest Irish players.
So if you spend your time trying to hit the ball further - stop now and practise your short game. Lesley’s accuracy around the greens was key.
Many thanks to Troon Ladies who worked hard to help make this event a success.
