Kathleen wins Midland Vets Championship

Captain Winifred presents
 Kathleen with the Championship Trophy
Congratulations to new Midland Vet Kathleen Webster (Ladybank) who today won the Championship Title at Burntisland Golf House Club, beating Gillian Wallace (Blairgowrie) 4 & 3.  Kathleen had beaten Margaret Tough (Falkirk) in the morning at the 20th hole, and Gillian had beaten Linda Dyball at the 19th hole (2 very tight semi-finals!).  How the weather can change - beautiful sunshine with a fresh breeze in the morning, with cooler, and then cold, windy and wet conditions later in the afternoon.  Thank you to the gallery who came out to support the players - many more than in previous years!

Linda Dyball aced her tee shot on the 5th hole in her semi-final against Gillian.  Congratulations Linda on your 4th hole in one and thank you for for the celebratory drinks!
