Fantastic Finals Day with Stephen Gallacher

Fantastic Finals Day with Stephen Gallacher

On a fabulous day we held our 2014 Finals Day at Kingsfield Golf Club, Linlithgow. In total we had 146 boys and girls taking part, which with all the parents attending meant around 350 attending. Stephen Gallacher was on hand for all the children and there for all the presentation of prizes, clearly with his performances he is inspiring all the children, who all wished Stephen great success for the forthcoming Ryder Cup by presenting him with a card of thanks.

Many thanks to everyone at Kingsfield Golf Club for their help on the day, special mention to Jane Allan and Robert Arkley for all there hard work and to our volunteers,who have also done a fantastic job all year, without them the events would not run as well or as smoothly, so thank you to Stuart Johnston, Jim McDiarmid, Cameron McDiarmid, Graham Ewart and Louis Knowles.

We also had help from Scottish Hydro Professionals Paul McKechnie, George Murray and Chris Kelly many thanks for starting the children and Criag Tumblety from Golfit who gave the children instruction on warm up excercises before they start.

On top of our main event we also held our "Short Game" World Match Play Championship in which all of the children competed in , this was superbly run by our Professional Jane Connachan with first class assistance from our two other Professionals Colin Gillies and David Burns. Fantastic job Jane.

The golf on the day was of an exceptional standard and befitting a finals day event. In the 9 hole Under 14 stroke play, Liam Currid and Janie Fulton both scored 35, with Liam winning at the first extra hole and in the Under 10 stroke play section 3 players tied on 42, Aidan O'Hagan, Owen Abu Baker and Archie Wilson with Aidan winning at the 4th extra hole. In the flag events, Ben Hunt won the Under 10 boys with a score of 31 and in the Under 8 Boys William Alexander scored a 33. Special mention though to Abby Steedman who won our World Match Play beating all 146 competitiors throughout the day an excellent result for one of our Under 10 Girls.

This event also seen the completion of our year long Order of Merits in the stroke play section. A fantastic competitive event throughout the year for the Under 14 and Under 10 Boys and under 16 girls.
