Linlithgow pair win Scottish PING Mixed Championship at Gleneagles

Linlithgow duo Gill Scott and Alasdair Mackenzie, pictured above, were today crowned Scottish PING Mixed Champions at Gleneagles Hotel's Queen's Course.
On a breezy day at the Perthshire venue, 40 club pairings teed it up in the free-to-enter national event for club golfers.  For the second year in the row, the winning team’s round included a hole-in-one, this year from Scott on the par-3 17th hole. 4
Scott’s ace helped the Linlithgow pair to an impressive 44pt Stableford total.  Finishing in a tie for second place on 42pt were Dennis and Ivy Donn from Musselburgh Golf Club, and Innes and Morag Cowie from Buckpool Golf Club.
Speaking after the victory, Linlithgow’s Gill Scott said “It was a fabulous event to be a part of here at Gleneagles. We had a really great day.”
On carding her first hole-in-one ever, Scott added, ‘To get my first hole-in-one in a national championship is absolutely amazing, I still can’t quite believe it. The wind was behind us and I just thought I am going to have to take my driver here and hit the ball. As we walked on to the green our playing partner gave me the thumbs up and said you have just got a hole-in-one which was quite surreal really, I am still shaking.”
Following a successful day at Gleneagles, Scott’s playing partner Alasdair Mackenzie added, “Playing mixed golf is always a lot of fun, if you have a playing partner who has a lot of fun it makes such a difference and that's what mixed golf is all about.
"All in all, it was just a brilliant day out and to win it with Gill was really special.”
