WINNING CHAMPIONSHIP DEBUT FOR ELAINE

Elaine Moffat (St Regulus) today won the Midland Vets Championship at the Montgomery course, Kinross with a 2&1 victory in the final over Dianne Watson (Leven GS) and Elaine will now represent Midland Vets in the S.V.L.G.A. Championship at Blairgowrie on 23d and 24th September.

In the morning's semi-finals, Elaine defeated Linda McDonald (Ladybank) in a lovely match and the winning margin of 5&4 did not fairly represent how well Linda played.

In the second semi-final, Dianne beat defending Champion, Fiona de Vries, (St.Rule) by 7&6 - Dianne's amazing putting being just too much for Fiona to overcome.

The afternoon's final was played at a fast pace in dry, breezy conditions and was a pleasure for the small band of caddies and supporters to watch. Elaine took an early lead with a birdie 4 at the 3rd hole and was 2 up after the 5th. Although Dianne won the 6th hole, Elaine won back the 8th and increased her lead to 3 after 10 holes and this remained the position after 13 holes. Dianne's fight back started at the par 3 14th hole with an excellent birdie followed up by an even better one at the par 5 15th but the door which had opened slightly was promptly closed again when Elaine birdied the par 5 16th hole with a 3 wood second shot which was straight out the top drawer. A stunning tee shot by Elaine at the par 3 17th hole meant certain victory for her although Dianne made a brave attempt to prolong the match by almost holing her 35 yard pitch.

Well done to both ladies for providing such an entertaining contest with many excellent shots and congratulations to Elaine our new and worthy Champion.
