Strathmore’s Kirsty Brodie has been named in the Scotland Girls’ side for the European Amateur Team Championship in Norway next month.
A six-player team will contest the annual event, this year being held at Oslo GC from July 5 to 9.
Brodie earned her place by finishing second in the recent Paul Lawrie Foundation Scottish Schools Championship at Murrayshall.
Steve Paulding, Scottish Golf Performance Director, said: “This is a very young team and for the majority of them this will be their first European Championship.
“The competition will be tough, but it will hopefully be a great learning experience for them. We are expecting each of the girls to go out and match their best performances of the year. It would be great to make the top eight matchplay stage, but that will require everyone to play at their best.”
Full team – Kirsty Brodie (Strathmore, 16), Louise Duncan (West Kilbride, 16), Jillian Farrell (Cardross, 16), Joanne Free (Gullane Ladies, 18), Hazel MacGarvie (Troon Ladies, 16), Jasmine Mackintosh (Hazlehead, 16).
The Scottish Boys’ team for their equivalent European event in Austria will be finalised after this week’s Sir Henry Cooper Junior Masters, where a number of players are competing. Scottish Boys champion Eric McIntosh (Bruntsfield Links GS) is the only automatic selection for the European team.
