Megan Docherty is leading Scot in rain delayed U16 Scottish Girls Open Championship

From the Scottish Golf Website

After a three and a half hour delay due to the overnight and early morning rain, play was eventually able to get underway at 11.00am.
In the U16 event, it was Austria’s Anna Neumayer and England’s Leonie Muir who finished the day at the top of the leaderboard after level-par opening rounds of 74.
Neumayer’s opening round included four birdies and four bogeys while Muir carded five birdies alongside three bogeys and a double.
The pair will now take a one-shot lead into tomorrow’s final round.
Portugal’s Sofia Barroso Sa sits one shot back of the leaders on one-over par, largely thanks to a fantastic bogey-free back-nine with eight pars and a closing birdie at 18th.
The top-Scot in the U16 event is Bishopbriggs’ Megan Docherty who posted a two-over par round of 76 and will go into tomorrow’s final round just two shots back from the lead.
Speaking to Scottish Golf after her round, Docherty said, “I’m pretty happy with today’s round, I played well and holed some nice putts. We were lucky with the weather after this morning’s delay and only got caught in one shower which was good.
Looking ahead to tomorrow, Docherty said, “It’s a nice position to be in. I’m just going to stay calm and try to play well and see what happens.”
In the U14 event, it was France’s Juliette Demeaux who posted the round of the day with an excellent one-under par 73.
Demeaux’s round included three birdies and two bogeys, and she will now take a two-shot lead into tomorrow’s final round.
Speaking to Scottish Golf after her round, Demeaux said, “It feels very good. I was confident as I wanted to play well in Scotland.
“I’m feeling confident. I played well today without attacking too much and that will be the plan again tomorrow, just trying to keep making pars.”
Demeaux’s nearest competitor going into the final round will be Kasumi Tran from Wales who’s round of one-over par has her sitting in second place.
Top Scot in the U14 event after Day 1 is Gullane’s Grace Crawford. Fresh off of competing in last week’s Home Internationals, Crawford made a costly double-bogey at 17 before bouncing back with a birdie on 18 to leave herself just four shots behind the overnight lead.

Patrick Trophy -- Diamond Dinner Celebration

Click on the slideshow above for bigger photos

In 1949, in an attempt to be able to play good competitive golf after working hours, two ladies, Miss Elizabeth Ogilvie from Kirkintilloch Golf Club and Miss Patrick from Bishopbriggs Golf Club began what is now known as The Patrick Trophy League solely for working women in and around the Dunbartonshire district.

The League consists of 7 teams: Bishopbriggs, Cawder, Douglas Park, Hayston, Hilton Park, Kirkintilloch and Lenzie.

60 years later, in keeping with tradition, all games are still played after work within a two month period to make best use of evening light.

To celebrate this occasion, we held a Diamond Celebration Dinner, hosted this year by Hilton Park Golf Club.
It was a very happy evening and making it even more special was the attendance of some the older ladies who were former players. One lady from Lenzie Golf Club, Mrs Rutherford, told our table she remembers playing in the very first match. She is now in her 90’s and unable to play but she still harbours a passion for the game.

After the death of Miss Ogilvie in 1999, (Miss Patrick had pre deceased her), it was decided that an Honorary President be appointed for a 2 year period.

Isabella Gardiner, from Douglas Park Golf Club, had the honour of becoming the first Honorary President.

Cheryl MacDonald, the current Honorary President from Lenzie Golf Club, is pictured in the slideshow cutting the cake before the meal was served.

While our tables were a mix of competitors, all rivalry was set aside with friendship and camaraderie the game plan for the evening.
