Sunday 22nd July 2007: Maureen Skinner (now Woodhead) has married Neil in St Lucia and ------


Renfrewshire Ladies County Golf Association congratulate Padraig Harrington on his Open Championship win at Carnoustie

Just a note to let you and my friends at Renfrewshire know that Neil and I got married in St Lucia on 11 July 2007.  It was just what we wanted - no fuss.  We were on holiday with 11 year old Scott who took his duties as 'Best Boy' and 'Ring Bearer' very seriously. 
 Here is  one of the zillions of photographs taken on the day -- (Click on the Photo above to see an enlargement)
 Hope to be playing in the Autumn meeting and I will bring the album along then.

Many Congratulations to both you and Neil (Mr and Mrs Woodhead) from all at RLCGA


Padraig Harrington has become the first Irish winner of The Open Championship since Fred Daly in 1947. He clinched the title in nail-biting fashion in a four-hole play-off with Sergio Garcia of Spain.

He had a one stroke advantage on the final hole of normal play but twice put his ball in the Barry Burn to take six. Garcia then had the chance to win at the 72nd hole, but bunkered his second shot and took five to force the play-off.
Harrington took an immediate advantage in the four hole decider, holing a birdie putt from eight feet while Garcia was bunkered short of the pin and failed to get up and down. They matched shots at the 16th and 17th before Harrington laid up in two at the 18th.
Going for broke Garcia hit his driver and then fired a six-iron from the light rough on the left 203 yards into the centre of the green. Harrington's approach pulled up outside Garcia's ball and his first putt rolled three feet past. Garcia's putted shaved the hole but made the return, leaving Harrington an unwanted three-footer for the title.

Renfrewshire held Lanarkshire to a draw in this mornings foursomes with another brilliant win by Megan and Clare- Marie against Elaine Cuthill and Lanarkshire Champion Pamela Pretswell. Another half point was gained by Donna and Gillian Kyle who were 1 down going to the last and managed to win the hole against Susan Wood and Alyson Hendry.

Gillian McGinlay won her tie against Elaine Cuthill and young Eilidh Briggs got a superb halved match against Lesley Lloyd in her first County singles match,

The players who gained the most points
over the three days were Megan Briggs and Claire-Marie Carlton, both of Renfrewshire. Megan won six out of six ties, while Claire-Marie had 5pt out of six to her credit.
Three times Scottish champion Anne Laing was D&A’s top performer with 4 1/2pt out of six, closely followed by Sara Bishop with 4pt out of five

Tuesday 10th July 2007: Renfrewshire lose out in close match with D&A

Renfrewshire were pipped today by a very strong D&A Team . In the morning foursomes the top team of Megan and Clare- Marie played fantastic golf to beat the formidable pairing of Anne Laing and Sarah Bishop. Donna and Gillian Kyle also won by a large margin against Susanne Cadden and Judy Galbraith. Gillian McGinlay and Julie Wilson had a very tough tie against the partnership of Gemma Wilson and Kylie Walker
Megan Briggs and Clare- Marie CarltonRenfrewshire
therefore led D&A by 2-1 after the foursomes and then they took the top two singles through Megan Briggs and Claire-Marie Carlton.
However, with  an exceedingly strong last 4 players for D&A --- namely Sara Bishop, Anne Laing, Gemma Webster and Kylie Walker.  --- It was an uphill struggle. Gillian Mullen(Paisley) who had replaced Lesley Robertson's late call off due to illness put up a brave fight but Sara Bishop was too strong for her. Gillian Kyle played ex Curtis Cup Player Anne Laing  and Gillian McGinlay and Donna had to play their best golf if they were to have a chance against Gemma Webster at 5 and Kylie Walker at 6. Gillian McGinlay played so well to take Gemma to the 18th and a chance to half match.
 Donna also did so well by taking Kylie to the 18th and she said it was all lost on the putting


Ayrshire led Lanarkshire 2-1 after the foursomes and then won the top two singles through Lesley Hendry and Debbie Watt. Catherine Malcolm got Ayrshire’s clinching point.
Day 2 results:
Foursomes: E Cuthill & P Pretswell lost to L Hendry & M MacPherson 1 hole; S Wood & A Hendry lost to D Watt & R Purdom 4 and 3; M Hughes & L Lloyd bt C Malcolm & R McQueen 5 and 3 (1-2).
