Broth­ers were up to par!

Rutherglen Reformer - - The Back Page -

It was a real fam­ily af­fair at Kirkhill Golf Club last week as two broth­ers scooped the top ju­nior and se­nior prizes on of­fer.

Lewis and Ross Irvine ended Fi­nals day as the ju­nior and se­nior club cham­pi­ons - a first for the Cam­bus­lang club.

Four­teen-year-old Lewis, who plays off a hand­i­cap of 3.6, made a suc­cess­ful de­fence of the tro­phy he won last year.

And later in the day, 3.5 hand­i­cap­per Ross (22) made it an Irvine fam­ily dou­ble when he won the se­nior prize for the first time.

Ross had ac­tu­ally de­feated their dad, Iain, in the last 16 of the com­pe­ti­tion be­fore go­ing on to win it.

Both boys have been mem­bers since they were 10 and both play in the gents team, and, of course, there is a friendly ri­valry between them.
