LOCAL golfing great Judith Anderson has been selected as manager of the Scottish Girls team to play in the Home Internationals at Gullane later in the summer.

It is the third time Judith will have been manager, having previously taken on the role back in 2006 when they won the event, while also being in charge last year when they finished runners-up to England.

The 38-year-old, who has won the Hawick Golf Club Championship an amazing 17 times and the Border Ladies Championship eight, told the Hawick News this week: “I regard it as an honour to be asked to be manager of the girls team and have a fair bit of experience having played girls international golf myself.”

Taught by Frank Scott, Judith, who has a handicap of four, broke the course record over the Vertish almost exactly a year ago.

And it’s that talent and wealth of experience she is looking forward to sharing with the team of Scottish girls at the event on August 3-5.

She added: “Although the team has not yet been picked, we have a strong squad of players and I would anticipate that the girls will do well.”
