In the Preliminary round of the County Junior Championship, Hannah Carson and Caitlin Caulfield (both East Renfrewshire) played their tie last Sunday. Hannah has previously lived and golfed in Dubai and is still acclimatising to the Scottish golfing weather. But her experience shone through and she comfortably beat Caitlin. Caitlin has not golfed much this year due to exams but had our only singles win at the Kennedy Salver at Clober back in June. Hopefully with the school holidays now here, they will both be playing in everything possible to see their handicaps tumbling down. Hannah now meets Jennifer Rankine of Haggs.
Sophie Kyle and Niamh Kinney
The other match was also played at East Renfrewshire at the weekend between Sophie Kyle and Niamh Kinney (Erskine). Niamh’s maturity and experience, plus her good golf won her the match comfortably 3&2. She now meets the winner of Emily Crusher (Eastwood) and Heather Mushet (Elderslie).
