The University of San Francisco posted a new program single round record when they shot a final round 288 to finish fifth. Cruden Bay Senior Lyndsey Devenish (75, 75, 72) was the top finisher for USF and TOP SCOT, earning a share of 11th with a 222 when she fired an even-par 72 in her last round.

California 15 shots in the lead after two rounds in Hawaii

University of California, Berkeley (Cal Bears) are having their best season ever, reflected in their No 12 position in the Division I league table, and have continued their success by taking a 15 shot lead over UCLA after two rounds with a total of 581 in the Kent Youel Invitational at Kapolei Golf course, Hawaii yesterday. Musselburgh's Vikki Laing, who has led her team to victory on two occasions this season already, is in 23rd position with scores of 74 and 78 for 152, but credit for their No 1 position must go to her four team mates who all figure in the top ten. Lyndsey Devenish (Cruden Bay and University of San Francisco) is best Scot, with two 75's and fellow team-mate Susie Laing (The Ladies Golf Club, Troon) is tied for 38th with scores of 81 and 74.

Midlothian Ladies start Centenary preparations.
There are still years to go, but Midlothian Ladies' County Golf Association have started thinking about their Centenary in 2009.
Midlothian has a fascinating history, with a membership positively littered with British and Scottish Champions in the early years. The plan is to use the Midlothian website www.mclga.co.uk as a repository for the history, records, memories and reminiscences of the county and its members. There's a new link Centenary in the MCLGA Index, and information will be added over the next few years... who knows... there might be enough for a book!
Several other County Associations were also formed in 1909, including Fife, Stirling and Dumbartonshire and some joint celebrations might be possible.
I've been been asked to form a Centenary Committee and I'm on a recruiting drive. If you are a MCLGA member and would like to be involved, or have any reminiscences that you would like to share, then email me.

A par four at the first extra hole was good enough to give Mikaela the title after Lindsey missed a four foot putt.
Mikaela shot a closing round of five-under 68 and Lindsey, beaten by Rebecca Hudson in this year's British women's open amateur championship at Ashburnham, signed off with a 70.
