Iron shots were holding the greens, chipping was not affected by bad bounces and putts were confidently struck and holed.  The younger boys all acquitted themselves well but in the end lost out to…

SOUTH OF SCOTLAND BOYS CHAMPIONSHIP

This year 19 boys travelled to Newton Stewart on Thursday 10 July to compete in the South of Scotland Boys Championships.

They all said they played well but the greens and approaches proved difficult. They all soon learned that they had to manufacture shots with the iron clubs and not always play their favourite lob wedge. A good lesson, particularly for the younger boys. In the morning…
