Leading qualifier Beth Coulter (Kirkistown Castle) has safely booked herself into the last 16 of the Irish Girls’ Close Championship. Despite the wet and blustery conditions, Coulter built a significant early lead in the match and while Lauren Kelly (Ballykisteen) held three long putts in a row at the turn, Coulter signed the match off 6&4 to set up a match with Canice Screene (Hermitage) tomorrow morning. Screene, who faced Emma Thorne of Elm Park in her opening match, needed 23 holes to secure a result when Thorne posed a comeback late in the round. 

Other representatives at last week’s European Girls’ Team Championships Anna Foster, Nicole Joyce-Moreno, Sara Byrne, Aine Donegan and Kate Lanigan all progress also to the last 16.

All is not lost either for those players who lost today. The matchplay continues in the Plate flight which will tee off from 09:20am tomorrow following the Championship matches which begin at 08:00am.
