Natasha does well at the Scottish Junior Strokeplay

Natasha has been playing at the Scottish Junior Open Stroke Play Championship at Dunfermline (Pitfirrane) Golf Club over the last 3 days.
The Pitfirrane course was so sodden by heavy rain that there was an hour’s delay at one point on the first day to allow the excess water to subside so it was a hard day for all the players. The next 2 days were better but the course must have been pretty wet.
The format for the championship was 54-holes strokeplay - one round each day - and there was no cut.
Natasha had a good 1st round -- only 4 over the CSS --- a 78 and then had an 84 on the second round that included 3 bad holes to spoil her card.
Today however she had a terific round of 75 -- one over the CSS to finish her in 17th place ---- WELL DONE NATASHA
also played --- and well done --- keep on going
