Update 6th December 2022 by Lady Convenor, Alene Campbell
Lorna’s 2022 has been simply outstanding. Her dominance of the various student events (R&A and BUCS), along with her exposure to international competition can only stand her in good stead for the increasing opportunities that she has earned for herself in 2023.
For those who have not read this summary of her achievements (as at October 2022), I include it here for your information:
R & A Student Tour Series (STS):
Represented the R & A on the winning International Team (against the USA) at the Arnold Palmer Cup at Golf Club de Geneve in Geneva.
In summary, this season Lorna was awarded 4 National Caps, won 7 Tournaments and achieved a further 7 top ten finishes. She has won 3 Order of Merits (R&A, BUCS, and Scottish Ladies) and posted her career best score of 13 under at Montrose smashing the existing Ladies Course record by 6 strokes. (This score is also just 3 shots short of the World record of 16 under shot in Oklahoma!!!). She has again gained a place on the Scottish Golf High Performance Programme and continues as a member of the International Sports Scholarship Programme at the University of Stirling.

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.
