Scottish women's amateur championship beaten finalist Connie Jaffrey from Kilwinning has finished fourth on her debut on the United States women's college golf circuit.
A freshman student at Kansas State University, Connie had rounds of 71, 76 and 74 for a five-over-par total of 221 over a par-72 course of 6,158yd at Alvamar Golf Club, Lawrence, Kansas in the Marilyn Smith Sunflower Invitaional.
Jaffrey,a former Scottish U18 girls champion, finished five shots behind the winner, Pornvipa Sakdee (Kansas) (70-73-73 for 216).
Connie's effort helped Kansas State University win their first team title in 10 years. They finished six shots ahead of their great inter-state rivals, Kansas University.
"The team played great," said Kansas State's Scottish assistant coach Stewart Burke. "The conditions were tough for the final day and we got off to a great start to put pressure on the leaders right away.
"It is great to win this event, and to come from behind shows the true character of this group."
