Senior Scots need major

improvement in Holland

Scotland will need to make a major improvement from 10th place overnight if they are to qualify for the championship match-play flight of the European senior women's amateur team golf championship at Wouwse Plantage Golf Club in Holland.
None of the Scots broke 80 in the first qualifying round.
Lorna Bennett (Ladybank), pictured right by Cal Carson Golf Agency (all rights reserved), came closest with an 81, one ahead of Fiona Hunter (Baberton) with Jill Harrison (Cruden Bay) and Fiona De Vries (St Rule), both on 84, Margaret Tough (Falkirk) on 87 and Mary Smith (Tain) 88.
Discarding one score, the Scots had a first-round total of 418 compared with Italy (397), Sweden (397), England (398) and Spain (398) who occupy the top four positions after the first round.
Only the leading four teams after the second qualifying round will make up the championship match-play flight. The other teams will go into lower match-play flights.
