Scottish selection for Teri Tara

Teenage golfer Tara Mactaggart has become the latest in a long list of Borders youngsters to achieve international honours this year.

The 18-year-old from Hawick has been selected for a full Scottish cap in the home internationals at Aberdovey in west Wales in a few weeks’ time.

“I was really chuffed to get the phone call on Monday. Selection is based on performance, consistency and attitude from April to August, and I thought selection was a possibility, but you never know what the selectors will do,” said Minto member Tara.
