University of St Andrews Golfer wins St Rule Trophy with a new course record.

Tuesday 11 June 2013

University of St Andrews Golf Bursar, Ailsa Summers, stormed home to victory in the St Rule Trophy (1st and 2nd June) with a stunning and sustained performance.

Having got the course record on the New Course on the Saturday Ailsa knew she was in with a chance on the Sunday. Ailsa continued to play well on Sunday morning and holed several impressive putts to keep my momentum going. Going into the final round on Sunday afternoon, she had a 3 shot lead from the No. 22 ranked player in the world. At this point, Ailsa was very nervous but managed to keep mistakes to a minimum. Having reached the 18th hole in the final round, hitting the ball onto the green to about 10 yards from the hole , she holed the putt to finish with a birdie and win by 2 shots. Ailsa, delighted with her winning performance, thanked the University for their support and the fantastic opportunities that they had given her this academic year
