Molly Richmond of Strathaven Golf Club today represented the West of Scotland in a match on the Centenary Course at Gleneagles playing with Ryder Cup Captains Paul McGinley and Tom Watson. Eight girls and eight boys from all over Scotland played two holes each and Molly was in Captain Watson’s team which was narrowly defeated by Paul McGinley’s team in front of a huge crowd and television crews and photographers , not to mention Ryder Cup Ambassadors Jodie Kidd, James Nesbit, Ruud Gullit , Alan Hansen and JLS’s Marvin Humes. Molly was also interviewed by Dougie Donnelly and listed Lanarkshire’s win of the Kennedy Salver as the highlight of her golfing year so far. At the par three tenth hole the girls played in Paul McGinley's team and the boys with Tom Watson in a competition to see who could hit the ball closer to the pin than their respective captains. Molly was one of four girls to beat Paul McGinley winning herself four tickets for the Thursday Practice Day and Opening Ceremony.

Midlothian win Scottish County Finals

Midlothian are County Champions for 2013 after a nail biting finish on Sunday at Stirling Golf Club..  Midlothian won their morning foursomes against the Borders 2-1 and Aberdeenshire trailed Renfrewshire by the same margin.  With Aberdeenshire only needing a half match to take the title it appeared their destiny was still in their hands, however Renfrewshire still had a chance for the title and they ran out eventual winners 5-4. Midlothian knew they needed to win all of their singles matches to be in with a chance and they managed that in convincing style.  As the three teams all had 2 match wins it went down to a countback and with the game points tied it all came down to holes played in winning matches with Midlothian beating Aberdeenshire by 1hole.
