In a high quality field it was 3rd year, Peter Kerr, who led the way for Saints Golf in the R&A Scholars tournament. Rounds of 71 and 69 on day 1 over the Eden course placed him well for the final days play on the Old Course. Playing in the final group and still in the mix with 5 holes to play he would agonisingly see two birdie putts graze the hole on 15 and 16. With the eventual winner, Aled Greville, finishing off a wonderful 65 it would leave Peter with just too much to do. Closing with two pars for a 70 (-2), Peter tied for 4th alongside Alan Fahy (Maynooth University).

The R&A once again staged an excellent tournament that has become a highlight of the season for student golfers, both Aled Greville and ladies winner, Lorna Mclymont, will now go on to represent Europe at this years Palmer Cup at the Alotian Club in Arkansas.
