Hazlehead honour David Law with exhibition match

on October 11, crystal and portrait on clubhouse wall

Hazlehead Golf Club is to stage an exhibition match to honour its double Scottish champion, David Law - winner of the Scottish Under-18 boys title at Balgownie in April and the Scottish men's amateur championship at Royal Troon at the end of July.
Law will partner Hazlehead clubmate Sandy Pirie against Donald Jamieson (Nigg Bay) and Bryan Innes (Murcar Links) in a 10-hole match, teeing off at 2pm on Sunday, October 11.
Pirie gained Walker Cup honours in 1967 and Jamieson won the Scottish amateur championship at Balgownie in 1980.
Innes reached the semi-finals of the Scottish amateur championship at Royal Troon this summer. A former Scotland international, Innes also reached the last four of the British mid-amateur championship at Muirfield in 2005.
Scottish Golf Union vice-president Gordon Murray, a lifelong Hazlehead Golf Club member, said: "We thought we should do something special to mark the achievements this year of one of our own members, David Law. Hugh Stuart, who was a Walker Cup player and a past Scottish amateur men's champion, would have played in the exhibition match but he will be on holiday at the time.
"The club will be presenting David with a piece of crystal, suitably engraved, and he will have his portrait hung in the Hazlehead clubhouse."
+The match on October 11 will, of course, be open to the public with no admission charge and Hazlehead GC officials hope that the Aberdeen golfing public will turn out in force to honour one of the city's greatest golfing sons.
