AYRSHIRE LADIES COUNTY CHAMPIONSHIP - Hendry makes it two in a row

Lesley Hendry (Largs Routenburn) retained the Ayrshire Ladies County Championship on Wednesday at Western Gailes, beating Ros Kennedy (Troon Ladies) in an extremely close final with good golf on display, despite the wet and windy conditions.

In the morning Semi Finals, Lesley Hendry eased past former winner Sharon Lambie (Troon Ladies) by 4 & 3, whilst Ros Kennedy ended the challenge of Morag McPherson (Turnberry) on the 17th green, with a 2 & 1 victory.

The final, contested in front of a sizeable group of hardy spectators, was a close match throughout with Hendry gaining a two hole advantage before Kennedy pulled the match back to square.

The match stood all square on the final tee, and a half in four ensured that the final would continue into extra holes, where Hendry went on to secure the title for the second year in a row at the first extra hole.

Prizes were presented to the succesful competitors at the conclusion of the championship.
