She described her round as “interesting” because it included a triple bogey, three double bogeys, 12 pars and a birdie. “I didn’t really play a bad shot, but I don’t know the course that well and got the wrong club on the bad holes. It was a very good day,” she said.She has played golf for 40 years and has been as low as nine. But, when her three children were young she didn’t play much and is currently working her way back down from 17 handicap. Last year she reduced from 15 to 13 and another cut is on the way after the regional final. “Now the children have all finished school I’m playing more,” said Karen.This was the second of six Regional Medal Finals. The East final has already taken place and the other dates are: Midlands North at Shrewsbury, Shropshire, on 3 May; Midlands South at Tadmarton Heath, Oxfordshire, on 13 May; North at Houghton-Le-Spring, Durham on 21 May; South West at Forest Hills, Gloucestershire on 25 May.South Region Medal FinalQualifying scoresPar 72 CSS 7568 Karen Kuhler (Walton Heath)73 Nancy O’Connor (Sundridge Park); Nicola Smith (Sittingbourne & Milton Regis)74 Gill Pates (Addington Palace); Kirsty Galbraith (Mid-Kent)75 Pat Morecroft (Nizels); Dinah Henson (West Byfleet); Michele Desmond (Knole Park); Susan Jones (Chestfield)76 Fiona Pullar (The Wildwood) 28 Apr 2014 Karen leads South qualifiers for Grand Medal Final
