2008 RLCGA Training Squad

The 2008 Training Squad has just been announced.

Eilidh Briggs (Kilmacolm), Megan Briggs (Kilmacolm), Clare-Marie Carlton (Fereneze), Donna Jackson (Cochrane Castle), Jennifer Jenkins (Ralston), Gillian Kyle (East Renfrewshire), Sara McCorkell (Williamwood), Gillian McGinlay (Cochrane Castle), Lorraine Morrow (Erskine), Julie Nicol (Elderslie), Beth Paterson (Eastwood), Liz Stewart (Cochrane Castle), Julie Wilson (Williamwood) and Carol Whyte (Windyhill).

Alyson McKechin, age 13, whose handicap dropped from 22 to 12 in 2007 and Natasha Qayum, aged 14, whose handicap dropped from 19 to 9, have been invited to join the training squad as an investment for the future.

Kate O'Sullivan (Cochrane Castle) is, at the moment, unable to work in Scotland until she receives a P.E. National Teaching Certificate from the USA. Ireland recognises her State Teaching Certificate so she is, at present, working in Ireland.

Coaching will commence on Monday, 11th February with the Squad taking part in a Par Yoga session with Janice Stewart at 7.30 to 8.30p.m. in the Brookfield Village Hall. This will be followed by two sessions of short game practise at the Mearns Golf Academy with Karyn Burns on Sundays 2nd and 16th March, and a short game practise followed by a session on the course on 6th April - all at 10a.m.
