could not have been held on a better day.

solid and consistent rounds of 87, 82 and 83 to
come in with a final tally of 252 over the three
She was pushed by Marg Johnson who had
made up four shots at the turn but champion Ally
came home in 39 including a lovely birdie on the

but it is great to have Ally back as a full time player.
