Season update from Ladies Convenor, Alene Campbell
Following on from her impressive four-shot success in the Flogas Irish Women’s Open at County Louth, Lorna continues to travel and play in tournaments of increasing prestige. The past months challenges have included achieving 7th place (with 4 players being in 2nd place) in the St Rule Trophy.
The St Rule Trophy is an international women’s amateur golf tournament contested on
the St Andrews Links in Scotland. It has been played annually since 1984. The format is 54-hole stroke play over two days. Since 2014, two rounds have been played on the New course on the first day and one round on the Old course on the final day.
Lorna’s challenge the following week was in the Scottish Women’s Amateur Championship where, having reached the final by winning her three previous matches on the 15th she had a more testing round. Having been ahead in the final from the 3rd hole, she unfortunately was just beaten by Cameron Neilson on the first hole of extra play. Whilst being runner up is an absolutely amazing result in and of itself, we can but empathise with how hard it must have been to lose at this stage.
We also know that Lorna is a determined character and she will turn this experience into a
positive going forward.
This coming week Lorna is playing in the British Womens Amateur Championship at
Hunstanton, England ~ we all wish her good luck here.
It is because of these higher callings that unfortunately Lorna was not able to defend her
MGC Club Championship title this year.
We wish Lorna all the very best for the remainder of the season.
