Heather McRae. Golfer.
The former British Amateur Champion, 2005, Heather McRae who is now working as an assisitant professional at the wonderful Gullane Golf Course, based forty minutes south of Edinburgh, has played herself into a starting spot in the Scottish PGA Championship to be played at Gleneagles in June.
Heather lined up at the qualifier, played over Downfield Golf Club in Dundee, and was one of 47 to get through the 18 hole shoot out, which will make her the first women golfer to contest the Scottish PGA since 1933.
I caddied for Heather during the 2007 season at St. Andrews in the St. Rule Trophy, one of top level amateur tournaments held during the golf season, finishing a respectable 10th. We then went on to play at the final qualifying over the New Course at St. Andrews for the Ladies British Open eventually won by Lorena Ochoa and in the resurrected Scottish Ladies Open played at the Carrick on Loch Lomond.
The Scottish PGA will be a great event and all the better for having Heather McRae to add some glamour to the field! Go beat them girl!
