Here are all the scores and prizes for the recent U18s and U16s Boys Championships. There were a couple of call-offs but 17 Boys in total played in the event, over a Musselburgh course in great condition. Ciaran Paterson, off Scratch handicap, and Luke Greig off 5 handicap, took the Scratch honours with excellent gross scores of 70. Gregor Thomson successfully defended his U18s net title with an excellent 66, and Magnus Braby won the U16s net with a 68. Photos attached below. The CSS went down 1 stroke to 71.
Our thanks to Musselburgh Golf Club for hosting the event at short notice in this difficult season, and thanks to all who played, and to all the prizewinners who then stayed for the prize-giving. The Musselburgh Junior Convenor Jim Wilkinson, and Sue Warren, were towers of strength in the registration, Covid checks, scoring etc. The League’s new gazebo tent and two-way radios got their first trial run, and greatly improved the ease of running the event. I sorted out the correct age groups, on the Golf Genius portal, and entered the remaining scores. Players’ scores were then entered through Intelligent Golf for handicap changes and Home Clubs will have been notified by now.
At the prize-giving, I mentioned a few ”treats” this season, instead of inviting Players to go to Pinehurst in February 2022, which trip been cancelled. I will be liaising soon with Junior Convenors and the East Lothian Ladies on this matter, but in the meantime, the 4 trophy winners have been asked to choose from a number of options. More details later.
All scores and prizewinners can be seen here.
