Beth Allen

Past Solheim Cup player Becky Brewerton from Wales made her debut on the Paul Lawrie Scottish Ladies Open Tour at Drumpellier Golf club today.

But it was another Ladies European Tour player, American Beth Allen who won the top prize of £750 with a one-under-par round of 71.

Beth won by a single shot from another who has LET experience, Kiran Matharu from Leeds. Kiran’s 72 earned her £600 and she is fast regaining the confidence that made her a Curtis Cup player in her amateur days.

Another past Curtis Cup amateur, Michele Thomson from Ellon, finished third on 74 and earned £500.

Brewerton finished outwith the money list with an 80.

Ranfurly Castle amateur Carol Fell almost had a hole in one at the fourth.

Playing off a handicap of nine, Carol did well to get round in a gross 81 and she won the golf balls prize with a net 72.

Gemma Webster, who has come on to her game in the past week or two, had the longest drive of the day at the designated hole.

The inaugural Paul Lawrie Ladies Open Tour ends next week with an 18-hole competition at Craigielaw next Wednesday, followed by the 36-hole Tour Championship over the Marriott Dalmahoy East and West Courses on Thursday and Friday next week.
