The GB&I ladies amateur golf season got underway last weekend with the Irish Women’s Open Strokeplay Championship held at the Island Golf Club near Dublin. In extremely tough weather, Gabrielle finished in 13th place after rounds of 80, 75, 84. Ireland’s own Olivia Mehaffey led from Round 1 to eventually win by 8 shots after scores of 69, 75, 79. Gabrielle played some fantastic golf over the 3 rounds, highlighted by her first 6 holes in Round 2, where she started birdie, eagle, eagle, par, birdie! What a flying start! The Scotland team including Gabrielle and Hannah McCook finished in 4th place, with McCook tying for 5th place individually. Gabrielle’s next event is the Scottish Women’s Open Strokeplay or the “Helen Holm” at Troon.
