Sheena Wood (Aberdeen Ladies), the North champion, won the Scottish Veteran Ladies Golf Association match-play championship over the Lansdowne coursse, Blairgowrie today.
She  beat Fiona De Vries (St Rule), the Midland qualifier, by 5 and 4 in the final.
After the morning semi-finals were played latterly in torrential rain, the sun came out for the final.
The match was decided on greens, with Sheena holing some telling 5ft putts early on to get to four up at the turn.  The holes were halved from there on in, and Sheena sealed the match with a par three at the 14th for a 5 and 4 victory.
