Report & photo by Colin Farquharson on http://www.kirkwoodgolf.com/ website.
for Euan Brown, he's already there!
Oh, to be in California, now that winter's here in Scotland!
But Ayrshire-born six-footer Euan Brown is already there in California. Lucky boy.
Euan is in his first year as a golf scholarship student at Saint Mary's College, which is based in the Moraga community about 12 miles east of Oakland.
He was the Ayrshire boys' stroke-play champion of 2007, the same year that he won the Ayrshire boys' order of merit.
