SCOTTISH BOYS GOLF - Cameron Gray helps Scotland to win in Quadrangular Tourney

Cameron Gray (West Kilbride) helped Scotland’s young golfers to win the Boys’ Quadrangular event at St Cyprien in France this week, their first win in the event since 1995.

The Scots defeated Sweden 6-3 in the third round match, to maintain their 100% record in the tournament.

The Scots got off to a shaky start, as Cameron Gray and Newmachar’s Lewis Kirton lost the first of the morning foursomes 4&2. However, after James Byrne (Banchory) and Ross Leeds (Muckhart) defeated their opponents on the final green and Ross Kellett (Colville Park) and James White (Lundin) combined well, winning 2&1, the Scots were back in pole position.

In the afternoon, Kirton, Gray and Byrne took the first three singles matches, giving the Scots an unassailable lead.

In the end the Scots won by two clear points having won all three of their matches, while Sweden, Italy and hosts France could only muster one win each over the three days.

Reports and results on all three days of play can be viewed on the Scottish Golf Union website at
