Vic­tory for Craig in the home of golf

Rutherglen Reformer - - The Back Page - Dou­glas Dickie

Cam­bus­lang golf star Craig Ross held off a host of tal­ented golfers last week to win the in­di­vid­ual prize at the Univer­sity of Stir­ling In­ter­na­tional Stu­dents’ Tour­na­ment.

Craig (22), who won a Europro event as an am­a­teur last year, lifted the in­di­vid­ual men’s prize at the Dukes Course in St An­drew’s.

He fin­ished his three rounds on one un­der par, pip­ping Stir­ling stu­dent Marco Iten, who is from Switzer­land, by one shot.

A clutch par putt on the fi­nal hole gave him vic­tory.

His win also helped the Scot­tish Golf Union Se­lect team to vic­tory over the univer­sity side for the sec­ond suc­ces­sive year.

Kirkhill golfer Craig is cur­rently ranked 24th on the Scot­tish Golf Union or­der of merit, de­spite only play­ing six tour­na­ments all year.

Last year, he tasted vic­tory over a field of pro­fes­sion­als at the Glen­far­clas Open at the Earl of Mar course.

He pro­duced three stun­ning rounds to take the ti­tle, fir­ing 63, 67 and 64 to fin­ish three clear of fel­low Kirkhill mem­ber Paul Shields and North­ern Ir­ish­man Jonathan Cald­well.
