New Shire
champion Sara
and pro golfer
Terry to wed
in five weeks

New Aberdeenshire county champion Sara Thomson, who has changed her club from Murcar Links to Royal Musselburgh since she moved to Edinburgh to work as a graduate chartered surveyor with a company called Jones Lang LaSalle, and her fiance, Kings Acre assistant professional Terry Mathieson are getting married in five weeks, writes Colin Farquharson.
They are buying a flat in East Lothian.
Terry has confirmed that he has played a part in Sara's improvement as a golfer. The galleries at last Sunday's Aberdeenshire county final victory over Sammy Leslie (Westhill) with a last-hole birdie were most impressed with her short game.
"Yes, we have being doing some work on Sara's game. She's always been a very good player, but I've just being helping her understand how to get round a golf course better with a bit of work on her technique and short game," says Terry.
"Sara can be a bit off a perfectionist, but I have been trying to get her to relax and accept not every shot will be 100%! Far too many younger players that are coming through can swing a club well but can't play golf.
"I've been showing her how to play knock-down shots and how to control shots into the wind etc, which all came in very handy at a very windy Peterhead! I would love to see how good she could be if she played more because she certainly has alot of natural ability and she has shown she has the nerve and determination to win.
"She was also delighted to get the Thomson name on the trophy as it will be changing to Mathieson in five weeks' time!"
