Alexandra Bushby wins Scottish Champion of Champions

Alexandra Bushby from Perthshire, who qualified as North of Scotland Champion, won the Scottish Ladies' Golfing Association Champion of Champions tournament after a playoff over the Glasgow Gailes links in Ayrshire this afternoon.
Alexandra had tied with her P&K teammate, Carly Booth, who qualified as Scottish Girls Champion, on 76, and although Alex had a better inward half, the rules stipulated a playoff in the event of a tie. Carly outdrove her on the first hole, but Alexandra put her second nicely on the green and holed for a birdie 3 and the CofC Championship.
Midlothian Champion, Rachael Livingston carded a 78 and took third place on the better inward half from Cara Gruber (Northern Counties)
