Tara wins Mackie Bowl

tara mackie bowlMany congratulations to Minto's Tara Mactaggart on winning the prestigious Mackie Bowl at Gullane last week.  Tara was an impressive winner of the Mackie Bowl by four strokes  at Gullane with an eight-under-par total of 140, made up of rounds of 69 and 71. Tara had a bag of 10 birdies over the day and her only two bogeys came late in her second round - at the 13th and 17th. 

Runner-up was Angus county champion Gillian Paton (Royal Montrose) who was only one behind after an opening 70 but could not press home a challenge on the second circuit and finished on 144 after a 74, which included bogeys at the seventh, 11th and 15th.

Joint third finishers Eilidh Briggs (Kilmacolm) and Rachael Livingstone (Kingsknowe) were also breathing downTara's neck after the first round, Briggs with a 70 and Livingstone with a 69 but they drifted out of contention in the afternoon with rounds of 76 and 77 respectively.

Angus Towers tells me that this is a competition that a Minto lady has won before when Lesley Atkins took the title.

As a result of her win Tara moves up to 9th place in the Scottish Golf Ladies Order of Merit table for 2017
