A PAIR of Williamwood golfers helped Glasgow to a win at last week’s Scottish boys area team championship.
In superb conditions at Prestwick, representatives from the 16 area associaitions of the Scottish golf union vied for top prize in the Dunfermline building society sponsored event.
Williamwood’s George Burns and Fraser Davren joined Cowglen’s Alan Waugh and Calum Fyfe of Cawder to make up the four man team.
Both Burns and Waugh are both members of the SGU National Boys’ Performance Squad.
Last year, the Lothians dominated proceedings but their rivals from the west were victorious this time round.
The young squad posted a 353 total to secure only their second ever championship success.
The score, which was comprised of two foursomes in the morning and the best three scores out of four in the afternoon singles secured win by seven strokes over the sun-kissed par-71 layout.
It was a solid overall team performance from Glasgow, helped by a four-under 67 from Burns in the singles, a 68 from Davren and Waugh’s 71.
Fraser told ExtraSport: “It’s been a long time since Glasgow won, and it was especially nice for the our manager, Campbell Cook.
“It was the first time he has ever won the event, I think at the 21st attempt.
“We weren’t spectacular in the foursomes, but in the singles I guess we were just better than everyone else and played really well.
The youngster continued: “The course was in brilliant condition, nice and firm. It was ideal scoring conditions and quite exciting near the end as the scores were close.”
Burns almost achieved a notable double triumph for Glasgow, only for Connar Cook from Angus to win the individual prize, the Niagara Cup, after his sparkling five-under 66.
Alexander Wilson of the Lothians joined Burns in firing 67.
The North East, with Paul Lawrie’s son Craig among their number, claimed runner-up spot, edging out Angus into third spot. With both sides tied on 360, it went to the 4th better score in the singles.
Meanwhile, southsider Kris Adams scored a hole-in-one this week, despite being partially sighted.
Kris Adams (23) scored an ace with his first shot off the first tee at the Mongomery Course in Kinross.
Kris is a member of the Scottish disability golf partnership team who face England in the Auld Enemes cup.
