Scottish Senior Women's Open Championship at Edzell, starting Tuesday

An 80-strong field will tee it up at this year’s Scottish Senior Women’s Open Championship which gets underway on Tuesday. The four-day event will be hosted by Edzell Golf Club between Tuesday 4thand Friday 7thJune 2019.
The first stage will be two rounds to decide the stroke-play champion, played over Tuesday and Wednesday, before the top 16 scratch scores progress to the match-play. From the remainder of the field, the top 16 net scores will also qualify for the net match-play.
The knock-out rounds will take place over Thursday and Friday with both finals being played over 18 holes.
Last year’s winner, Elaine Moffat from St Regulus Golf Club, will enter the week as the highest ranked player as she looks to defend the title she won at Prestwick St Nicholas in 2018.

Moffat, who won the Scottish Women’s Amateur title back in 1998, narrowly edged out Sheena Wood from Aberdeen Ladies in last year’s final. Wood, pictured, will also be returning this year looking to go one better having previously triumphed in 2016.
Ahead of the event, Moffat said; “Edzell is a real Scottish inland gem and a great place for an exciting championship week. The standard of play is always high, with national team selection involved. I can’t wait to get going and try and defend my title from last year.”
Alex Glennie from Kilmarnock Barassie, who has finished as stroke-play champion in two of the last three years, will also be teeing it up at Edzell this week as she aims to continue her impressive record in the event.
2018 net winner, Isla McCrone from Turnhouse, will be competing again alongside beaten finalist Karen Ballantyne from Craigmillar Park.
