There was glory on the golf course last Sunday when Linlithgow youngster Cameron McAndrew won the Highland Spring Junior Masters.
Cameron (15) of Braehead Place stormed the final with a score of 42 points off his 12 handicap beating 51 finalists at the Queen’s Course at Gleneagles.
Cameron, a member at Linlithgow Golf Club, has gone through the ClubGolf programme since the age of eight, and his acheivement is the perfect end to a year where he started the season off with a 19 handicap.
He said: “I loved the greens on the Queen’s. It’s a great feeling to win and I hope to pursue a career in golf.”
His parents Katie and Dougie were absolutely thrilled with Cameron’s success.
Katie said: “His dad Dougie went up with Cameron to Gleneagles to watch the match and they played a round together the day before.
“Cameron had four three-putts in the game so it could have been an even better score for him but it’s put fire in his belly and it’s a great way to finish the year.
‘‘Before this, all the competitions he has competed in have been local but his handicap has come right down this season and he had a fantastic back-nine. He is absolutely thrilled to have won.”
The Highland Spring Junior Masters is Scotland’s largest national event for young golfers, supported by ClubGolf, the national junior programme, the Scottish Golf Union and the Scottish Ladies’ Golfing Association.
