SCOTTISH AMATEUR CHAMPIONSHIP - McDonald and Walker through to quarter finals.

Kilmarnock (Barassie) clubmates Jack McDonald and Euan Walker are through to the quarter finals of the 2014 Scottish Amateur Championship, being held at Downfield, Dundee, this week. 

Jack McDonald
Ayrshire had four players in the last 32 of the competition on Thursday morning, but the fourth round proved to be the end of the road for Kenny Macaskill (Turnberry Staff), who was beaten 5 & 4 by Josh Jamieson (St Andrews New), and Scott Brown (Turnberry) who lost by 7 & 5 to Craig Ross (Kirkhill).

A current Scottish internationalist, Jack McDonald reached the last 16 on Thursday morning with a 2 & 1 win over Euan Bowden (Tantallon) and followed this with a single hole victory over Cameron Buist (Glenbervie) in the afternoon to reach Friday morning's quarter finals.

Euan Walker

On Thursday morning, former Scottish Boys cap Euan Walker, who is presently studying in the USA,  had a 3 & 2 win over Campbell Donaldson (Downfield) and in his last 16 tie in the afternoon his progress was more comfortable with a 5 & 4 win over Daniel Hendry (Emirates).

In the quarter finals on Friday morning Jack McDonald plays Chris Robb (Meldrum House), whilst in the other half of the draw Euan Walker faces Barry Hume (Haggs Castle)
