Jennifer Bryans:2016 East Vets Champion

Jennifer Bryans of Harburn GC won the SVLGA East Division Championship at Haddington Golf Club and will represent East Vets in the Scroggie Cup inter-divisonal championship at Blairgowrie in September. Congratulations Jennifer and commiserations to runner-up Barbara Biggart (North Berwick GC) who was leading qualifier and went all the way to the Final.

Barbara and Jennifer at the first tee
 No sooner than the Final had got underway and it was waterproofs on and umbrellas up. However, the rain only lasted a few holes and there was even the odd glimpse of blue sky on the way round! Jennifer took an early lead at the second hole but Barbara immediately hit back with a birdie at the third. After exchanging holes at the fourth and fifth, Jennifer went ahead again at the sixth then at the seventh both she and Barbara hit excellent iron shots to the green. However, Barbara's putt failed to drop whilst Jennifer's did - to double her lead. Both players were on the tricky par-3 eighth green which was halved in regulation whilst neither found the ninth with their second shots. A very good up and down from Jennifer extended her lead to 3 up at the turn and although Barbara reduced the lead to 2 up at the thirteenth, her approach to the fifteenth overshot the green and Jennifer seized the opportunity to go three up again. Jennifer closed out the match at the sixteenth where Barbara's ball had too close an encounter with the large greenside tree resulting a 4&2 win for Jennifer.
