Another successful training day at Playsport

Report and pictures by Lesley Lloyd
Our Squads had another session with Lesley at Playsport today. The Advanced and Development Squads managed to play a few holes on the golf course but unforunately the Juniors were unable to do so due to dropping temperatures. Hopefully the girls will get on to the course in the Spring when it is a bit warmer! However, Lesley put them through their paces on the range and judging by the chat and laughter they had fun while learning how to develop their pre-shot routines, punch shots, lob shots and pitching.

The next informal practice session on Thursday 9th December will now be from 7.00 pm to 8.00 pm and we will include some festive fun!

Pamela is awarded Honorary Membership of LLCGA

Pamela-click to enlarge
This evening at the AGM Pamela Pretswell was awarded Honorary Membership of the Association. Captain Lesley Lloyd said of Pamela:
What a player! What a year! She
Represented GB and Ireland in the 36th Curtis Cup Match against the United States at Essex County Club, Massachusetts.
Was 6th in European Ladies Amateur Individual Championship.
Was Runner Up in the Austrian Ladies Amateur Championship - (including a nine-birdie round of six-under-par 66).
Won the British Ladies Amateur Stroke Play Championshionship.
Was SLGA Champion of Champions.
Represented Scotland at European Ladies Team Championship, with Scotland winning the Bronze Medal.
Represented Scotland at Ladies Home Internationals – Pamela holed the winning putt to ensure Scotland won the Home Internationals Matches for the first time in 19 years.
You have just heard what an outstanding year 2010 has been for Pamela Pretswell. Pamela was a top-ranked tennis junior, rubbing shoulders with Andy Murray and co at the age of 14. However, she swapped tennis for golf 7 years ago and as they say the rest is history! To reach the top of the amateur game in such a short period of time is quite amazing and we are immensely proud to have her as one of our members.
Not only is Pamela a fantastic golfer, she is in her Honours year at Glasgow University studying Business and Management and despite her very busy schedule (not to mention jet lag following the Curtis Cup) Pamela found time to come to Kilmacolm to caddy for the team!
Pamela, in recognition of your outstanding achievements, but in particular being selected to represent Great Britain & Ireland in the Curtis Cup and winning the British Open Strokeplay Championship I would ask you to accept Honorary membership of Lanarkshire Ladies’ County Golf Association.
