GILLIAN MCLEOD IS THE 2017 ROSEBOWL WINNER

Alyson and Gill

Due to the persistent rain on Sunday the 25th September , the final of the 2017 Rosebowl between Gill McLeod (Williamwood) and Alyson McGinnigle (Cowglen) was resumed on the 4th tee at East Renfrewshire Golf Club on Saturday 30th September at 1.30pm. Gill was 2 up at this point . 

It was a great match enjoyed by both players in which every hole was closely contested thereafter.
Alyson was then 4 down after 12 holes but then won 2 holes in a row playing a great iron shot to give herself a tap in on the 14th and bring the match back to 2 down. 
She was unlucky when a well struck tee shot at the 15th went in the burn and Gill took advantage to win the hole and then close the match out on the 16th.
Many congrats go to  Gill and commiserations go to Alyson -- also apologies for the delay in this report.

EILIDH IS THIRD IN CHAMPION OF CHAMPIONS


Alyson, Gillian and Eilidh


Hannah McCook (Grantown on Spey) won the Scottish women's champion of champions' 18-hole tournament at Glasgow Gailes Golf Club today (Sunday) despite double bogey 6s at the ninth and 10th holes.
Birdies at the first, fourth and 14th helped her return a one-over-par 72, a good score for the testing links course.
Tara Mactaggart (Minto) finished runner-up, one stroke behind with a 73. Had Tara finished with a par 4 instead of a double bogey 6 she would have won the title. The Borders player started well with birdies at the first, second and fifth but had a bad spell in the middle of the round when she bogeyed the eighth, 10th, 12th and 15th. A birdie at the 14th put her back on track for a possible win but the double bogey at the 18th relegated her to second place.
Renfrewshire champion Eilidh Briggs (Kilmacolm) finished third with a 74.
A field of 16 was the biggest the competition has attracted in recent years.
