PS from Gillian Kirkwood at Panmure.....
There were very few spectators supporting Scotland at Panmure today.   All the other Divisions come with a huge band of supporters....they have no need to get club caddies and can rely on their entourage to do the pulling.   It is so disappointing to have such poor support when we are playing at home.
If you are not doing anything on Wednesday and Thursday and live in or near Angus,  how about coming along to Panmure to watch some great golf from some very talented players.
