SCOTTISH WOMAN'S CHAMPIONSHIP - Luisa Gibson wins Clark Rosebowl at Trump International.

Luisa Gibson (Irvine)
won the Clark Rosebowl at the 2022 Scottish Woman's Amateur Championship, held at Trump International near Aberdeen between the 3rd and the 5th of June.

Following on from her impressive 16th place finish in the St Rule Trophy at St Andrews the week before, where she posted rounds of 77 and 74 on the New Course and a final round of 73 on the Old Course for a two under par total of 224, Luisa just failed to qualify for the matchplay stage of the Scottish Woman's Championship, but was third qualifier for the second flight matchplay competition for the Clark Rosebowl.

On Saturday the 4th of June, a two hole victory in the first round against Louise Fraser (Kingsknowe) and a second extra hole win over Carys Irvine (Craigielaw) sew Luisa into the semi finals on Sunday morning where she won through to the trophy final with a 3&2 win over Megan Ross (Banchory)

In the final on Sunday afternoon Luisa played Carinna Taylor (Nairn). Despite losing the opening hole of the final, Luisa got herself ahead by the 8th and a half on the 16th was sufficient to record a 2&1 victory.

At the start of the week ten players from Ayrshire clubs took part in the strokeplay qualifying with only Freya Russell (Royal Troon) qualifying for the top flight matchplay, in eighth place, with an eight over par total of 152 after rounds of 75 and 77. Freya's title hopes ended in the first round of matchplay, losing 2&1 to the eventual title winner , Swiss based Cameron Neilson, who went on to win the final on Sunday afternoon.

None of the other Ayrshire club's members in the field of 78 players qualified for either the top or second flight matchplay rounds.
