27th July

The rain was absolutely torrential today accounting for a number of N/Rs.  However, the downpour didn't deter Susan Randall who won the Silver Section with a handicap cutting 68, playing without a waterproof (it seemed to work).
Viv Mitchell was runner-up with a 69 increasing her lead at the top of the league. Third was Coleen Derighetti with a 71.
Unfortunately no players from the Bronze Section actually completed the round, yes it really was that bad.
This was the final qualifier for the Ladies Championships and Diane Moncrieff who last won in 2014 was the top qualifier this year with her round of 75. 2017 Champion Mandy McBain and 10-times Champion Linda Robertson were next best with 77.

Well done Susan Randall and Diane Moncrieff in winning the national final of the R&A 9 hole Challenge today winning with 41 pts, second place was a mere 37 pts.
They may have been representing Comiston Ladies (where they qualified from) but they have also done Lochend proud.
Susan and Diane have won a chance of a lifetime, all expenses paid trip to the Grand Final over Royal Portrush on the eve of this year’s Open Championship where they will compete for the overall title against winning pairs from England, Ireland, Wales and Australia.
Wonder if they need a caddy.

Lorna MacKay and Myra Law were the medal winners in a very low scoring contest today.
Lorna scored a fantastic 62 to take the Bronze and spare a thought for Carole Owens who carded 64 and only made the runner-up spot. Mary Law's 66 saw her into third place.
In the Silver Myra Law also carded an equally impressive 64 giving her a six shot lead over Jaci Moriarty who was runner-up on the better-inward-half from Diane Moncrieff who also carded 70.
This Medal was also a qualifier for the James Erskine Interiors Centenary so Lorna wins the £50 voucher and will be joined by Myra, Jaci Morairty and Jennifer Somerville at the Grand Final at Graigmillar Park in September.

Congratulation to Diane Moncrieff who nailed a hole in one at the par 4 fourth hole today.  She was playing her final tie in the group stage of the Winter round robin with Coleen Derighetti (needless to say she won well) and moves on to the knockout quarter final as the only player to win all her group matches.
