Fern Clark wins at Stirling InternationalSeptember 10th, 2017
2nd year Fern Clark edged out teammate Cassie Kneen for a 4 shot victory in the first BUCS Tour event of the 2017/18 season – the Stirling International.
Held over 3 days and 54 holes on the Torrance course at the Fairmont Hotel just outside St Andrews this victory marked Fern’s best achievement for Saints Golf to date and will set her up for a strong season as we build towards the Tour Finals. It was Cassie who set the pace with an excellent opening 70 (-4), however she was unable to keep up the pace and after rounds of 80 and 82 would settle for 2nd just ahead of another Saints Golf member, Marie Danielsson. The St Andrews 2nd team of Fern, Cassie and Kirsten Brown together took the Ladies team title.
In the Men’s event a strong Scottish Golf team proved to be too much for the rest of the field recording a convincing victory, they were led by Scottish internationalist Liam Johnstone who was the only player to finish under par for the week en route to securing a 6 shot victory in the individual tournament.
