Wales home internationals

Wales Ladies clinched their third Home Internationals title in the last six years, as a comfortable 7-2 win over hosts Scotland gave them a clean sweep of victories.

Held at Scotscraig in Fife, Wales opened their tournament with a win over defending champions England.

After squeezing past Ireland by a single point, Wales had one hand on the trophy after taking all three morning foursomes matches against a Scotland side looking for their first win.

Victory came in the first two games of the afternoon. Playing in her final match as an amateur before turning professional, Amy Boulden defeated Eilidh Briggs by one hole.

The winning putt was holed courtesy of Chloe Williams, as she maintained a peerless record of six points out of six. She beat Lauren Whyte 4 and 3.  

Wales continued to put points on the board as Katie Bradbury halved with Alyson McKechin and Katherine O'Connor defeated Connie Jaffrey.

Becky Harries completed proceedings with a half against Hannah McCook. Heather Monroe claimed Scotland's sole victory, beating Samantha Birks.

Wales captain, Jill Evans, was delighted with the performance of the team.

"We were so close last year, just missing out to England despite not losing a match. We really wanted it this year," she said.

"We were the best prepared team here and the girls all did really well. Coach Jeremy Bennett played a big part in that. His contribution was huge."

Golf Union of Wales director of performance, Ben Waterhouse, added: "This was the most complete team performance in my time with Union.

We have played very, very well. It was a complete team performance with every player contributing.
