MacDonald leads Scots Tour School success

2014 12 Kelsey Mac Donald

Three Scots ladies are set to enjoy an extra special Christmas this year after securing their cards for the Ladies European Tour in 2015.


Kelsey MacDonald, Laura Murray and Heather MacRae all finished inside the top-30 at Lalla Aicha Tour School Final Qualifier, securing playing rights on the top European circuit for ladies golf.

MacDonald, who is from Nairn and was previously part of the University of Stirling’s golf scholarship programme, finished highest out of the trio with an impressive sixth place finish after the tough five round contest. Murray and MacRae both made it on the number, finishing in a tie for 26th place with an overall score of one-over-par.

After her round, MacRae tweeted: “I’ve been to tour school seven times and I think I’ve always missed by a shot, feels nice to be on the right side of the mark.”

Ice-cool Madsen takes crown


Danish amateur Nanna Madsen, who posted a tournament record equalling nine-under-par 63 in the final round to earn a two-stroke victory and her card for the 2015 Ladies European Tour, won the event and says she is excited to be playing on tour next year.

“It’s really great to win the tour card. It was a long week: five rounds, the longest tournament I’ve ever played, but it’s been a pleasure being in Morocco.

“I made a lot of putts and hit a lot of great shots. I didn’t feel any pressure. I was hinting the other girls all the time and then I was leading by two shots on the 18th so I wasn’t really nervous.”

Overnight leader Georgia Hall from England, who had led since the first round, was forced to settle for second place as she posted a final round 71 to finish on a total of 15-under-par.
