Scottish Girls' Championship :: Jaffrey out

2014 05 1750468061

It was a day full of surprises at the Scottish Girls' Championship at Dumfries and County as Connie Jaffrey’s defence of the title came to an end thanks to a one hole quarter-final defeat at the hands of Mirren Fraser.


Jaffrey, beaten finalist in the Scottish Ladies’ Championship in May, was never ahead in the match up. Two down after six holes, she did rally getting to all square with three holes to play. However, Fraser held her nerve to win the short 16th with a three.

Claire Robertson of Carmoustie Ladies caused the shock of the Scottish Girls' Championship's first round as she defeated top seed Clara Young from North Berwick 2&1.

The underdog won the first two holes and never looked back. Eventually triumphing at the 17th hole.

Although, Robertson then went out in the quarter-finals in a close match against Gullane’s Joanne Free. The highlight for the East Lothian girl was an eagle three at the long eighth.

Free trailed in the early stages but she drew level at the 16th, after a par at the tricky uphill short hole was enough to edge ahead. The pair then approached 17 where free went on to close out the match.

In the semi-finals, Free will face Heather Munro from Monifieth – she defeated Shannon McWilliam of Aboyne by two holes in the last eight match - while Fraser meets Fiona Liddell who was the second qualifier.

German-based Liddell had an impressive 7&6 win over Molly Richmond from Strathaven in round one and she was also dominant in her 4&3 quarter-final victory over Gullane’s Charlotte Munro.

The Scottish Girls' Championship final


The final of the Ansley Reid Salver will be contested between Jennifer Saxton of Kinross and Jillian Farrell from Cardross. They both won their semi-finals 3&2 over Kirsten Brown of Strathaven and Mill Green’s Nicola Callander respectively.
