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.
