Day 2 Scottish Girls

The weather was terrible for the early starts this morning with very wet and windy conditions culminating in a suspension of play for two and a half hours just after 12pm for fog. The afternoon conditions were much calmer which helped the late starters. Rachel Watton and Eilidh Briggs lead the qualifiers for the championship matchplay. Tara Mactaggert is the only Border's representative left, she plays Broomieknowe's Hannah Scott in the Ansley Reid Salver. Good luck Tara
