South boys com­pete in ju­nior team com­pe­ti­tion

The Galloway News - - MOTORS -

The South of­fi­cials took a De­vel­op­ment team of six boys, all un­der 16 years of age, to Glen­bervie on Sun­day 24 Septem­ber to com­pete in the in­au­gu­ral Scot­tish Ju­nior Team Com­pe­ti­tion.

The for­mat of the com­pe­ti­tion was 18 holes sta­ble­ford be­tween the win­ners of Ju­nior Area leagues in Scot­land and as South Area does not have a Ju­nior League be­tween all the Clubs we were per­mit­ted to en­ter a de­vel­op­ment team for ex­pe­ri­ence. Five sta­ble­ford scores from the six man team were to count as the team score.

The South team of Tay­lor Kerr (San­quhar), Jamie March­bank (D&G), Sam Mitchell (Port­patrick), Cal­lum McMil­lan (Kirkcud­bright), Kaleb John­ston (Port­patrick) and Ol­lie Hogg (D&G) ar­rived at Glen­bervie to find that heavy rain had been fall­ing all morn­ing and would even­tu­ally make the course al­most un­playable.

The team to­tal was 157, which un­der the ad­verse con­di­tions was very ac­cept­able, and the boys fin­ished sixth out of the 13 com­pet­ing teams.

The day was con­sid­ered a suc­cess and the boys en­joyed the course and would like to go back when the sun was shin­ing! Craig­mil­lar Park won the team com­pe­ti­tion with a re­mark­able to­tal of 178 points and Tay­lor Kerr fin­ished in a three-way tie for best in­di­vid­ual round with 38 points. The CSS was 73 or 34 points. In­di­vid­ual scores 38 points Tay­lor Kerr (San­quhar). 34 Cal­lum M cMi l l a n (Kirkcud­bright). 31 Sam Mitchell (Port­patrick). 29 Jamie March­bank (D&G). 25 Ol­lie Hogg (D&G). 21 Kaleb John­ston (Port­patrick).
