Teenage golfers from Queensferry will ‘‘live the dream’’ when they step out in the company of international superstars at this week’s Ryder Cup.

David Boath and Kayleigh Singer are part of the ClubGolf coaching programme at Kingsfield Golf Course, 
Linlithgow, and have been given a once-in-a-lifetime chance to walk the course with the biggest stars in golf.

They have been selected by ClubGolf to be official scoreboard holders during this week’s Ryder Cup and will be carrying the match boards around the course with the players.

The duo have taken part in ClubGolf coaching through the Sottish Golf Development Centre programme at Kingsfield.

All they had to do to be selected for The Ryder Cup was nominate themselves and the person who has been the biggest inspiration in their golfing 
development.

David Boath is taking his grandfather, Ian, along with him to Gleneagles.

He said: “I want to take my papa to pay him back for all his trust and care over the years and it’s a chance to say thanks.

‘‘He has spent loads of time with me and has helped me develop my game. It will be a fantastic experience.’’

Kayleigh, who has already had the privilege of delivering, by helicopter, the famous Ryder Cup trophy to Gleneagles earlier this month.

She is sharing the experience with her dad, Colin.

Jackie Davidson, ClubGolf manager, said: “This is a great opportunity for these junior golfers to take part in one of sport’s biggest events and we are grateful to Ryder Cup Europe for making it happen.”
