 Scotsman.com Sport - Golf - Lothians set out to claim their own bit of history
ADDING to their record haul of titles is not the only incentive for Lothians when they line up against Glasgow, North-East and Renfrewshire in the final stages of the Scottish Area Team Championship at Bathgate this weekend.
On the strength of their past record in the event, Lothians are always going to be looked upon as the title favourites when it gets to this stage.
For the second year running, Lothians will take on Glasgow in the last four - and, on the evidence of what happened at Cardross 12 months ago, it will certainly be a lot tougher than any of the tests the cream of Capital golf have faced so far this year.
