Kirsty Brodie wins St Andrews Ladies Invitational


The University of St Andrews Ladies Golf Club hosted the 2016 Ladies Invitational. The new 2016/17 club president, Annie Rickard, invited competitors to St Andrews to compete for the Renee Powell Cup and Carol Kaufman Shield - formerly known as the St Andrews Invitational.
The 6th iteration of the tournament saw schoolgirls and university students from all across Europe travel to the famous home of golf to compete on the St Andrews Links.
This year  president Rickard introduced an extra round to the second day, turning the tournament into a 54-hole stroke play event. This has allowed the Ladies Invitational to be submitted as a World Amateur Golf Ranking event, which will hopefully help to attract a wider and more international field in 2017.
Over the two days, competitors played the New, Eden, and Strathtyrum Courses.
Kirsty Brodie (Webster’s High School, Kirriemuir) won the Scratch Division following impressive rounds of 76, 71, and 73 for a four-over-par total of  220, making her the first recipient of The Renee Powell Cup.
Molly Richmond (Strathaven Academy) was close behind with a seven over par total earning her the runner-up position
Katie Darling (University of St Andrews), won the Net Division with a 23-under-par of 193 off a handicap of 11 and was presented with the Carol Kaufman Shield. England’s Rachel Alford (Aston University, Birmingham), playing off 12, was seven  strokes behind as runner up of the Net Division.
It was a great pleasure to have the new principal of the University of St Andrews, Professor Sally Mapstone and Lady Angela Bonnallack join the competitors and the University’s Ladies Golf Club committee over lunch.
