Jennifer has played a good steady game throughout the Championships but Donna's experience told on the end. We will see more of Jennifer in future events.
Good luck to Donna who now goes for her 12th win

Gillian Kyle (East Renfrewshire) bt Donna Jackson (Cochrane Castle)  2 & 1
Gillian, playing in her first County Final, was soon 2 up after 3. Donna won the 5th to get 1 back but Gillian continued her winning streak and was 3 up at the turn.  She won the 11th to go 4 ahead but lost the 14th, Donna then won the 16th with a birdie 4. It was now dormie 2.  The 17th was halved and so it was a fine win for Gillian by 2 & 1.
Some excellent golf has been played by Gillian all week having won the West Vets meeting on Monday.  She is now representing Scotland in the Scottish Vets match v Ireland at Dunbar this week-end.
Donna didn't manage to achieve her 12th Championship win but she was a very worthy runner-up.
