West of Scotland Trophy

West of Scotland Trophy

13/03/2019

Competitors at this year’s West of Scotland Trophy had to deal with some of the worst weather the BUCS Tour has seen for several years. Gale force winds were present for the entire duration of the event and with rain and hail blowing through it made scoring extremely difficult.

In the mens event it was Connor Rochon who led the challenge for St Andrews, picking up his first BUCS points of the year with a 6th place finish –  enough to secure his place at Tour Finals. Matthew Myers moved into the Top 10 on the final day with an 83 to finish T7, rounding out the Top 15 for Saints Golf was 1st year, Jack Lockhart, who finished in 14th. Jordan Sundborg (Stirling) won the tournament won the tournament by 2 strokes on 231 (+18).

Fern Clark was our leading lady, with one of the low rounds on the final day she moved into a tie for 4th and in doing so secured vital points towards the Tour Finals. Alexa Hammer continued her consistent season with a 6th place finish.
