Aboyne’s rising star Shannon McWilliam won the North of Scotland Women’s Championship at Dunblane New Golf Club last week.

Top seeded Shannon, 16, had to go to the 22nd hole to get the better of Jacqueline Cameron, the No 2 seed from Blairgowrie.

The GB and Ireland Junior Vagliano Trophy team player had beaten the holder and Aboyne clubmate, Kimberley Beveridge, 3 and 2 in the semi-finals.

Shannon said: “I was delighted to win, after feeling bitterly disappointed to not have been picked for the European team Championships in Iceland.”
