Eilidh Briggs Wins the Janice Moodie Trophy

Eilidh Briggs, 13-year-old Kilmacolm Golf Club junior member, won the Janice Moodie Trophy for the second year in a row at the girls’ open tournament, sponsored by the Glasgow-born LPGA player, at her former home golf club of Windyhill.
The trophy goes to the player with the lowest net score from all three age group categories and Eilidh, pictured left, had a very good net 71 off five of a handicap over a wet course with very little run on the fairways.
Eilidh’s older sister Megan won the 15 to 17 years’ section with a net 78. Kirsten Scott (Windyhill) won the 10 to 14 years category with a net 72 off 13 and Jennifer Linklater (Largs) was best in the 18 to 21 years group with a net 78 off eight of a handicap.
Ayrshire women’s county champion Lesley Hendry (Routenburn) won the best scratch score award with a 79, pipping Megan Briggs, who also had a gross 79, on the better inward half.
