Congratulations to Taylor Kerr (Thornhill) who was the only player from the South of Scotland to compete in the inaugural Barrie Douglas Scottish Junior Masters at Blairgowrie over the par 72 Landsdowne Course from 27 to 29 April. A select field of 40 of the elite junior golfers in Scotland played in the 54 hole event.

He played very consistently over the three rounds. After his first round of 71 he was tied for 4th position and he retained this position following his 74 in the 2nd round. He only lost by one shot after his final round of 72 moved him up to a tie for third place.

This experience should give him a lot of confidence and a hope that he now knows that he can compete with the best juniors in Scotland.
