Laura Murray - (Photo courtesy of the LET Access Tour)

Scotland’s Laura Murray produced some sensational golf to claim her second LETAS title, with a -14 total, in the Rügenwalder Mühle Ladies Open at Golf Club am Meer in Bad Zwischenahn, Germany. The 31-year-old led from round one, opening with a stunning eight under par, 64, to take a two shot lead over Germany’s Luisa Dittrich who recorded a 66 on the opening day.

Murray was solid throughout the week, driving the ball extremely well and producing some impressive iron play. When the Scot looks back on her win, she will probably remember the decision to try out a different putter that sat at home for some three years without being used. 

“If feels incredible, it’s really good. I’ve been working really hard for this all season and I feel I’ve been knocking on the door recently and nice to finally cross the line and get the job done. I think my attitude on the course was pretty good. I just kept telling myself to keep smiling and just concentrated on what I was doing and holed a few putts and that kept me smiling a bit more. I’ve been playing so solid it was quite a nice relaxing week for me. And my attitude certainly helped me through it.”

“I put this other putter in my bag. It’s been sitting in my apartment for like three years and I just thought why not let’s chuck it in. Yes, definitely, sometimes just changing something can get a different feeling and it certainly helped this week so I think that will be staying in the bag.” 

Murray’s win has catapulted her into 4th place on the Order of Merit and she now is in within touching distance of securing her playing rights on the Ladies European Tour for the 2020 season, but Murray doesn’t plan to get ahead of herself.

“I’m going to approach it in the same way because it worked so well this week so now I know I’m 4th then there’s a good chance of securing that top 5 in the Order of Merit. I’m looking forward to see what we can do next week and to see what the course is going to offer and I’m sure it’s going to be a lot of fun.”

Other Scots
29th: Jane Turner - Even Par 
46th: Gabrielle MacDonald +7
Missed Cut -- Rachael Taylor and Hannah McCook

Hannah Darling finishes tied 6th in the World Girls Championships

Carmen, Hannah and Katy
Scotland's Hannah Darling  finished T6 in the world Girls Championship in Canada yesterday.

She had scores of 73, 66, 71 and 76 for 286 - 11 shots behind the title winner from Thailand, Atthaya Thitikul who had scores of 73, 63, 71 and 70 for 277. 

The Thai's superb second round of 63 was the score, in the final analysis, that separated her from the field.

Two  other Scots in the field, Carmen Griffiths (78-81-75-74)  for 309, and Katy Alexander (83-80-86-79) finished 39th and 58th respectively.

Laura Murry leads on Day 1 of the Rügenwalder Mühle Ladies Open

Laura Murray
Scotland’s Laura Murray claims the day one lead at Rügenwalder Mühle Ladies Open with a stunning eight-under round of 64 at the Golf Club am Meer. Germany’s Luisa Dittrich ended the day two adrift of Murray after a terrific six-under 66 in her home event, whilst Sweden’s Isabella Deilert is a shot further back on -5. 

Murray made the perfect start to her round with successive birdies on the opening two holes in Bad Zwischenahn. A huge drive led to a third birdie at the par-5 seventh before a rare missed drive at the ninth slipped the leader back to two-under at the midway point.

After a solid opening nine holes, the experienced Scot found her rhythm down the back nine with six birdies and no dropped shots coming back. Murray has been frustrated in recent weeks with strong tee-to-green play being let down on the putting surface but speaking after the round Murray had no such frustrations with a change of putter proving the key to her change in fortunes at the German course.

The other Scot in the field is Jane Turner who finished on 2 under and who lies in 11th place. She was delighted to have no bogeys in her round

With the Rügenwalder Mühle Ladies Open the final event before the season ending Road to La Largue Final, Friday’s second round is crucial for many players with vital qualifying points up for grabs. Overnight leader Murray will be conscious that a large group of players remain in contention and equally determined to secure a LET Access Series victory as the end of the season approaches setting the scene for a terrific day’s play once again in Bad Zwischenahn.

Hannah Darling has a Hole in One in the World Junior Girls Championships

‪A hole-in-one helped Hannah Darling on her way to carding a 66 in the 2nd round of the World Junior Girls Championships in Canada yesterday. 

‪Hannah currently sits in second place on 5 under par - three shots behind ‬Atthaya ThitiKul from Thailand. 

Carman Griffiths and Katy Alexander are in 45th and 55th position respectively.

Some happy Cathkin Team Members
Cathkin Braes played their final Greenlees Match today at home against Douglas Park. 
The home team only needed 3.5 points for victory but with a very strong team they defeated the visitors 8.5- 0.5 to win the title from Troon Ladies. 

Cathkin Braes Captain Susan Ramsay present Lindsay Mclean
with a bottle of wine for her hole in one
Douglas Park required only one point to remain in the 1st division, but this was not to be. The only highlight for them was Lindsay McLean having a HOLE IN ONE at the thirteenth hole. 

They are joined by Ranfurly Castle to be demoted to Division 2 in 2020. West Kilbride stay in Division 1 by virtue of a countback on matches won (2 points for a win and one point for a draw) 

In Division 2 Whitecraigs have finished on 43.5 points and Haggs Castle play Lenzie on Friday 27th and require a 7-2 victory to win the division. 
Please note : 2 points to be deducted from Cathcart Castle match against Old Ranfurly (A player did not turn up)

Karen Ballantyne is the new Scottish Vets Captain

L to R - Fiona de Vries, Karen Ballantyne, Maureen McKenna, Alison Whyte,
Nancy Duncan, Moira Begbie and Ellie Whyte

The SVLGA AGM was held on Monday 23rd September prior to our prizegiving. 

Many thanks to all the members who attended. Captain Ellie Whyte gave her report on a very successful Mary McKenna Trophy Match held at Troon and on the ‘Work in Progress’ Jamboree held at Northhamptonshire GC. 

We are indebted to Ellie for her superb organisation of the team over the last two years and her attention to detail, good humour and boundless energy! 

President Maureen McKerrow, Vice President Nancy Duncan, Secretary Alison Whyte, Treasurer Moira Begbie will continue in office for the current year. 

After serving two years as Vice Captain, Karen Ballantyne was appointed Captain for the next two years and is very much looking forward to working with our squad of players over the winter. 

I’m delighted Fiona de Vries has agreed to be our Vice Captain. Her huge wealth of experience playing in many team events and in particular at Vet and Senior level will be invaluable.

Thanks go to he new SVLGA Captain Karen Ballantyne for the report and photograph

Scottish Vets Round up from Blairgowrie including the Beddows Quaich and Tony Moffat Memorial Trophies

Fiona Hunter and Sheena Wood

Championship: We have a worthy 2019 Champion in Sheena Wood (Northern) who was pushed all the way by Fiona Hunter (Galloway)

The match was all square after 4 holes but Fiona built up a steady lead and was 3 up after 10 holes. Sheena fought back and the match was all square after 14. It looked like it would stay that way after 16 but Fiona sank a long putt to take her 1 up. Once again Sheena squared the match, on the 17th. 
A tense finish on the 18th saw Sheena pitch onto the green from a tricky lie and once they were on the green, Fiona conceded the match. This was a game of high quality golf with a better ball of 3 over which, given that the course was playing its full length, was very good scoring.  We were all impressed by Fiona’s brilliant short game and I think we should all be out there over the winter with the aim of getting ‘up and down’ from anywhere off the green. It’ll pay dividends. 

Some of the main prizewinners on Day 1
Patrick Rosebowl singles over Rosemount: Congratulations to Gillian Kyle on an excellent score of 76 net 73 which was the best scratch and net score of the day. The score was particularly good as Gillian teed off in the first game when it was particularly damp and misty.

Scottish Golf announces the new Handicap System will be introduced on November 2, 2020

‪⛳️ | Scottish Golf is pleased to announce that the new World Handicap System will be introduced on November 2, 2020. ‬

The governing bodies of amateur golf in Scotland, England, Ireland and Wales are delighted to announce that they have signed the licence for the new World Handicap System (WHS) which will come into operation on November 2, 2020.
As members of the Council of National Golf Unions (CONGU), Scottish Golf, England Golf, the Golfing Union of Ireland, the Irish Ladies Golfing Union and Wales Golf have been driving forces in planning for the new system in alliance with The R&A and USGA.
The current Golf Handicapping System maintained by CONGU will be replaced by WHS which will unify the six different structures currently in operation throughout the world of golf.
With one single, global system in place for the first time, golfers will be able to obtain and maintain a handicap index and use this on any course around the world.
In addition they will be able to compete or simply play a casual round with fellow golfers anywhere on a fair and equal basis.
As well as encouraging players new to the sport to obtain a handicap with ease, the WHS will also modernise the game for those already well versed in the game of golf.
Under the new system a player’s handicap will be based on the average of eight best scores from their last 20 rounds.
WHS will also take into account factors currently not fully represented in the existing handicapping procedure through a course and slope rating system.
“Following recent education seminars across the country, Scottish Golf is pleased to confirm that the new World Handicap System will be implemented on time on November 2, 2020. We believe that moving to a more unified handicap system will be beneficial to all golfers,” said Scottish Golf CEO Andrew McKinlay.
“The team here at Scottish Golf will continue to liaise with, and support clubs across the country to ensure the transition between now and next year is as seamless as possible for everyone involved.”

Provisional GB&I Curtis Cup Squad Announced

Hazel MacGarvie, Shannon McWilliam, and Hannah Darling have all been named in 🇬🇧&🇮🇪’s initial squad for next year’s Curtis Cup. 

Read more 👉
An initial Great Britain and Ireland squad of ten players has been announced by The R&A ahead of next year’s Curtis Cup match at Conwy Golf Club, Wales.
The 41st Curtis Cup match will be played from Friday 12 – Sunday 14 June 2020 with GB&I attempting to regain the historic trophy after the United States recorded a commanding 17-3 victory at Quaker Ridge in New York last year.

Strong player pool

Elaine Ratcliffe, who will captain GB&I in the Curtis Cup for the first time, said, “We have a strong pool of players to choose from throughout GB&I and I’m delighted with the ten players we have selected for the initial squad. Each player’s performance and results will be monitored closely over the coming months and we will be looking for each of them to maintain a high standard as they try to secure their places in the team. 

“There are many other talented players who can be added to this squad over the next few months. We will be following performances closely before the Curtis Cup team is announced in May.”

World Amateur Golf Ranking™

Olivia Mehaffey, the highest-ranked member of the squad at number 19 in the World Amateur Golf Ranking™, is aiming to make her third Curtis Cup appearance. Having made her debut in 2016, where she secured 3½ points for the victorious GB&I team, Mehaffey was also a standout player in last year’s tough defeat at the 2018 Curtis Cup where she helped achieve 2½ of the team’s 3 point total. Currently attending Arizona State University, Mehaffey has recorded three collegiate wins this year. 

Also in contention for the 2020 team are Mehaffey’s team mates from  2018, Shannon McWilliam, Annabell Fuller and Lily May Humphreys, who has enjoyed an excellent 2019, winning the Annika Invitational Europe, Irish Women’s Open and Welsh Ladies’ Open stroke play championships. 

Emily Toy, the Women’s Amateur Champion and an R&A Foundation scholar, has been named in the initial squad and is hoping to make her Curtis Cup debut in 2020. The squad features a further five potential debutants including Hannah Darling, the Scottish Girls’ Open champion, Annabel Wilson, the Irish Women’s Close champion, Hazel MacGarvie, Julie McCarthy and Isobel Wardle. 
The GB&I squad:
Hannah Darling (16, Broomieknowe, Scotland)
Shannon McWilliam (20, Aboyne, Scotland)
Annabell Fuller (17, Roehampton, England)
Olivia Mehaffey (21, Royal County Down Ladies, Ireland)
Lily May Humphreys (17, Stoke by Nayland, England)
Emily Toy (21, Carlyon Bay, England)
Hazel MacGarvie (19, Royal Troon, Scotland)
Isobel Wardle (19, Prestbury, England) 
Julie McCarthy (20, Forrest Little, Ireland)
Annabel Wilson (18, Lurgan, Ireland) 

The final eight player GB&I team will be announced on 11 May 2020 and will include the two golfers who are placed highest in the World Amateur Golf Ranking™ in the week prior. A further six players will be selected by The R&A Women’s Selection Committee. Up to four non-travelling reserves will also be announced.
