Louise Kenney up for the next

Orange Blossom Tour event

Curtis Cup team contender Louise Kenney from Dunfermline is raring to go for her second event on the Orange Blossom Tour in Florida - the 78th Jones/Doherty amateur championship at Coral Ridge Country Club, Fort Lauderdale.
The Scotland international and Pitreavie GC member, pictured by Cal Carson Golf Agency, has already put her disastrous Saturday finish in the South Atlantic ladies amateur championship behind her and is looking forward to an event in which the list of winners include the legendary Babe Zaharias and Women's British Open champion Catriona Matthew in 1992.
"I triple bogeyed the 13th and 15th, then double bogey the 16th on Saturday. Yes, I had a bad last six holes!" said Louise who was tied 10th after rounds of 77, 71 and 75 but tumbled down to a joint 17th finish with a last-day 12-over-par 84 in which she required 46 shots for the second nine.
"I didn't putt as well as I would have liked but I feel I have lots of positives to take from my first week in Florida, considering I hadn't played since November. So I'm very much looking forward to the Jones/Doherty tournament at Fort Lauderdale."
Kenney had to have an appendix operation last year and by the time she was fit and ready to resume playing the bad weather had set in all over Scotland.
The Jones/Doherty tournament, which has an entry fee of $245, begins with a qualifying round of Monday with the leading 32 players going forward to the match-play stages.
