SCOTTLAND GOLF - Mixed fortunes for Ayrshire pair in representative golf

Ayrshire's current Scottish internationalists had mixed fortunes last week in representative events.

In the Belgium Junior Championship, played at the Royal Golf Club of Belgium, Jack McDonald (Kilmarnock Barassie) finished in joint 21st place after rounds of 72, 75, 78 and 74 gave him a 299 total.
The other SGU representative at the championship, Liam Johnston (Dumfries & County) finished in joint 16th place on 297, after rounds of 72, 77, 74 & 74.

The boys event was won by Thomas Elissalde of France with a total of 284 (74/71/71/68)

SLGA representative  Kelsey McDonald (Nairn Dunbar) was the winner of the girls championship.

In the St Andrews Trophy match at Castelconturbia near Milan in Italy, between  GB & I and The Continent Of Europe, Michael Stewart (Troon Welbeck) was on the losing GB & I side who went down by 14 - 10.

Over the two days of competition, Stewart teamed up with fellow Scot Ross Kellett for the foursomes. On day one the Scots pairing beat Pontus Wiedegren and Jesper Kennegard of Sweden by 2 holes and made it two wins from two on the second morning when they again combined to defeat J Lopez-lazaro & Romain Wattel of France by 2 & 1.

Stewart did not fare so well in his singles matches however, losing out on day one by 4 & 2 to Nino Bertasio of Italy and being defeated by one hole on day two by Max Kieffer of Germany.
