IRISH EYES ARE SMILING AFTER SEVEN BIRDIE ROUND

Image

Julie McCarthy (Forrest Little) & Sheena Scott Lady Captain Strathmore 

Ireland's Julie McCarthy matched the course record of six under par 66 in the second round at Strathmore to win the SLGA Under 16 Open Strokeplay Championship.

One behind on 72 overnight, the 15 year old from Forrest Little has seven birdies for a six under par 138 total and claimed the coveted trophy by three shots from Austria's Emma Spitz.

Spitz, a joint first round leader, had a 70 and third place went to England's Samantha Fuller (Roehampton), who repeated her opening 71.

It was just two years ago that McCarthy chose golf over football as her sporting passion - and she proved it was a good decision with a win in last year's Irish Girls' Championship. 

"I played football for Lienster but then took up golf," explained the youngster. "I've still got another four years to do at school but, eventually, I would like to turn professional.

I shot 68 in the second round and finished fourth  here at Strathmore last year so it is definitely one of my favourite courses. Today I didn't hole any huge putts but made a lot from around the 15 foot range. This is definitely rates as one of my best ever performances."

Introduced to the game by her father, Ronan, McCarthy is coached by Sean O'Grady - he is also in charge of the 19 year old Maguire twins, Lisa and Leona.

"The twins are great and a real inspiration," continued Julie. "I get to meet them quite a lot and we were all on the same National Squad training camp earlier this year."

Aboyne's Shannon McWilliam was the leading Scot. She shot rounds of 78 & 75 to finish in a tie for 15th place. Gullane's Charlotte Munro (80, 74) and Troon's Hazel MacGarvie (79, 75) were another shot back.

The winning team was Ireland, Julie McCarthy, Niamh McSherry and Lisa O'Shea.
