Golf: Scottish Junior Event Winner
7th August, 2019
Congratulations to V Form pupil, Daniel B who won the Scottish Junior Event at Lanark Golf Club last week, finishing 10 shots ahead of second place.
Daniel said “After narrowly missing the cut (-1) by 2 shots at the Scottish Men’s Amateur at Crail earlier in the week, I tried to bring my good form to a Junior Tour event at Lanark. My first round included four birdies on the front nine combined with a level par back nine to finish with a 4-under 66.”
“After a short lunch break, an excellent drive on the 17th hole to within a few feet of the hole led to an impressive eagle, which saw me finish 2-under for the second round. My finish of 6-under over the two rounds allowed me to finish in first place, 10 shots ahead of second place.”

Alan Murdoch, Director of Golf at Merchiston, commented “This result has been coming for Daniel, he has played so well this year, it was just a matter of time before he won a National Event. I am delighted for him as he has worked so hard on his game”
