THSG & LPH pupils Pat Watkins, Jan Armstrong and Amanda Marshall all played this week in the EGU Senior Ladies Amateur Championships at the club. A strong field of 112 ladies from all around the country just managed to get their rounds in on Day 1 with the weather doing its best to disrupt play.
Pat, Jan and Amanda have been working hard on their games in the lead up too this tournament seeing myself and Oli for both long and short games. They all did fantastic coping with the extra pressure of playing around their home course.
Day 2 was a different story with torrential downpours putting pay to the day, which resulted in the strokeplay competition getting cut to just one round. The top 16 competitors qualified for flight 1 which was a matchplay event played over 72 holes on Thursday and Friday. The flight 2 competitors who comprised of the players that finished 7 – 64th place played in a strokeplay event of which Pat and Jan qualified for. Full results will follow in next weeks enewsletter
Congratulations to Pat, Jan and Amanda for representing the club so well, we are all very proud of your performances under testing conditions.
