The FCLGA Junior Championship, Patrick Trophy, was played on probably the windiest day this year on 23rd August at Burntisland. With ten girls in the field we were promised a terrific competition. They all played with great enthusiasm and battled against a 3 club wind and stronger gusts.
Committee members and parents ball spotted and they could be seen pointing to the skies and following balls to their landing spots. Players headed onwards to consider the next shot, which was essentially attempting to keep the ball in play. Par 4 greens were driven and putts holed, some sensational short game displayed, demonstrating the great character of these young players.
After the competition we all assembled in a packed spike bar for our inaugural Junior Prize Giving, with great chat over sausage rolls and sandwiches. Our invited guests, Emma Wilson and Joan Blyth enjoyed presenting the prizes and meeting all the girls, and we extend our sincere thanks to them and to Liz Jones for their participation.
The winner of the Junior Trophy, Eilidh Henderson nett 75, Runner up Abbi Wallace nett 81.
The Runner-up of the Patrick Trophy, Porscha Wilson scratch 87 and the winner of the Patrick Trophy 2015 with a scratch 85, is Evanna Hynd.
Our congratulations go to each and every girl, they have all participated in the junior competitions throughout the year, attended the coaching session in June and it is a pleasure to watch them improve and enjoy this wonderful game.
Thanks to Fiona Hill, Junior Convener for the report.
