Great win at St Andrews by Isla McCulloch
Isla McCulloch, winner of this year's St Andrews Junior Ladies Open Quaich, plays most of her golf at Moray and Rothes golf clubs but is also  a member at Cruden Bay where she first learned to swing a club.
At St Andrews, she qualified on the Monday round the Strathtyrum Course where she shot a net 69 ( 2 under) and gained one of the eight spots for the open Quaich quarter-finals.
In a hard-fought quarter-final match against Dominica Bobrikova (a member of the Slovakian team) Isla  came out on top by 2 and 1.
In the semi-finals she beat 18-year-old Taylor White from Cathkin Braes by 2 and 1 after a fantastic match.
The final was held on the Old Course where she met Lucy Hall from Gullane. Despite being two down after only four holes, Isla won the match on the Road Hole 17th with a par to clinch the title 2 and 1.
It was Isla's first competition in an international field. To qualify was a great achievement but to go on and win was unbelievable.
She has just started third year at Elgin Academy and has joined Elgin Golf Club which is now her nominated club.
