Eilidh Briggs 2018 RLCGA Champion
Finals day at the 2018 County Championship proved very  challenging  to all competitors for the Championship Semi-Finals and the Irvine Trophy (Handicap) Final in the morning with heavy rain and extremely wet/tough conditions underfoot.

Championship Semi-Finals

Eilidh Briggs (Kilmacolm) played Liz Stewart (Greenburn). Eilidh played some phenominal golf considering the conditions and was 5 under over 10 holes making life extremely difficult for her opponent Liz.  -- Eilidh won 9 and 8.

Alyson McGinnigle (Cowglen) played Gillian Kyle (East Renfrewshire) in the second semi-final. This was a closely contested match with both players demonstrating excellent golf under difficult conditions. Gillian eventually won the match on the 18th.

Irvine Trophy (Handicap) Final

This final saw Jan Macnab (Ranfurly Castle) play Morag Little (Whitecraigs). As the rain continued to fall, conditions became very tough for both players but their standard of golf remained very high.
It was a tightly contested match with Jan eventually winning on the 18th hole - congratulations Jan.

Championship Final

Although it was dry overhead for the afternoon thriller between Eilidh Briggs (Kilmacolm) and Gillian Kyle (East Renfrewshire) the conditions underfoot remained challenging.

The front 9 was closely contested with a number of birdies from both players.
Eilidh, however, triumphed over Gillian in the back 9 winning the match on the 15th hole.

Congratulations Eilidh on not only winning today's County Championship Final but also the Scratch and Net Qualifying Round on Wednesday - your golf over all 3 days was awesome and, hopefully, this is the start of a very successful season.
