Greg Dalziel wins Lanarkshire boys' title

                          Left to right: Greg Dalziel, Jim Ewing (Shotts) and Craig O'Hara.
Greg Dalziel, aged 16, is the new Lanarkshire boys' match-play champion. He beat fellow Airdie player and also 16 years old Craig O’Hara in a nail-biting final which went to the last putt!
 Both boys started well and halved the first eight holes in par although Craig’s superb approach at the 180yd par 3  eighth hole to  four feet deserved a birdie but lipped out.
The ninth was classic match-play where Craig looked favourite to win the hole from just short of the par five in two but contrived to lose to a par!  Greg extended his lead at the tenth and looked set to win easily. However Craig had other thoughts and levelled after 16 holes, winning both 15 and 16. 
The 17th hole was halved and Craig hit a tremendous drive at the 240 yard par 3 last. Alas it was too good and went through the green. Greg hit hybrid on to the green and the ensuing par was enough to secure victory. However both boys can be proud of their efforts.
The trophy was presented to Greg in the clubhouse by Lanarkshire President Jim Ewing of Shotts Golf club.
