Golf: Lesley’s joy

Have your say

LESLEY ATKINS is this year’s East Lothian Girls’ champion after claiming the title in the Spring Meeting with a splendid 75 over the West Links at North Berwick.

It continued a good start to the season for the highly-rated Gullane Ladies’ player, who had helped East Lothian retain the Cuthbertson Cup at Whitekirk the previous day.

Atkins’ clubmate, Charlotte Munro, who was in that winning team as well, also completed an early-season double by claiming the handicap honours. She lifted the Morrison Quaich with a splendid 68 on a day when the CSS was 73, winning by nine shots from Dunbar’s Shannon Young.
