Scottish and Renfrewshire champion Megan Briggs, played in the singles match at the Home Internationals against England this afternoon. Megan who had been three down after five holes to English girls title-holder Holly Clyburn, fought back to win the seventh, eighth and ninth. Then she birdied the 11th to lead for the first time. Megan then went two up at the 14th but Clyburn was not finished yet. She won the 15th with a par and the short 16th with a birdie 2 to square the match. In a thrilling finish, Megan edged ahead again with a par 4 at the 17th, which meant she was assured of a halved match at least and that half-point would guarantee Scotland at least a halved match overall with England. Megan in fact was able to clinch overall victory for Scotland, beating Clyburn by two holes when the English player conceded the 18th.
