Sporting first

PATRICIA Sawers has made sporting history by becoming the first female committee chair of Carnoustie Golf Links in its 113-year history.

The panel of Carnoustie Golf Links Management Committee made the landmark appointment of 55-year-old Mrs Sawers, pictured with Yani Tseng after she (Tseng) won the Women's British Open at the course in 2011, earlier this week. Mrs Sawers succeeds Gordon Wilson. Picture: HEMEDIA.
