Junior Member Megan Aird was the first ever girl to reach the finals of the Strathmore Junior Championship on Sunday afternoon and I was very pleased to referee what was an excellent match played by two very talented, polite and courteous young people.

The other finalist was defending champion Allan Easton who was the eventual winner of the day. Allan also reached the Gents Club Championship final this year and although did not go on to win he was the first junior to take part in the final. Yesterday Allan played some tremendous golf and finished in style with a 3 on the ladies par 5 14th. Allan was only 1 over par. Megan had reached the green in two but Allan closed out the match by chipping in. Megan played beautifully throughout the match with 2 excellent birdies on 3 and 10 and her play off the tee was superb.

Both players conducted themselves in manner they should both be very proud of. There was no displays of bad temper or sulks and even after losing a ball Megan walked back to the tee quite happily. It was a pleasure to spend the afternoon in their company.

Congratulations to Megan for her achievement in reaching the final.
