Lesley Atkins searching for the form that made 

her Scottish U18 girls champion

Lesley Atkins was at one time the Scottish Under-18 girls' champion and rated a top future prospect. Somewhere along the line the talent has disappeared.

Latest news from the US women's college circuit is that Lesley, a final year student at the University of Louisiana-Monroe, finished 52nd in a field of 55 players at the Golden Eagle Jam tournament at Hattiesburg Country Club, Mississippi.
Atkins, pictured, had rounds of 82, 76 and 88 for a total of 30-over-par 246 over a par-72 course or 6,228yd.
She finished 35 shots behind the winner by two, Emma Svensson (Central Arkansas), who had scores of 67, 71 and 73 for five-under 211.
Will Lesley ever be the player her teenage form marked out for her?
Never, say never.
Justin Rose, who went on to win the US Open and play Ryder Cup golf, missed the cut in his first 25 tournaments as a professional.
