Hard luck for Lewis

Rutherglen Reformer - - Sport -

Burn­side golfer Lewis Irvine was knocked out of the Scottish Boys Am­a­teur Cham­pi­onship af­ter nar­rowly los­ing out in the quar­ter fi­nals.

The 17-year-old ran Aus­tralian Josh Greer close and both were tied as they fin­ished the course at the 18th.

Greer, of Joon­dalup CC, edged Lewis out af­ter two more holes at Scotscraig, Tay­port, to take on Cal­lum Bruce in the semi-fi­nal.

Lewis tied sev­enth af­ter a 36-hole stroke play and eas­ily made the cut for the match play which started on Sun­day. He was look­ing to go one bet­ter af­ter fin­ish­ing run­ner-up at the same event last year.

A com­fort­able 5&4 vic­tory against Gif­ford’s Con­nor Wil­son meant a last 16 tie with Lewis Brown from Tober­mory awaited. A hard fought 2&1 tri­umph took him into the quar­ters to play Ai­den Smith, of Edzel GC, where he came from one down with three holes to play to win at the last.
