NEWS RELEASE ISSUED BY THE SCOTTISH GOLF UNIONGraeme Robertson, runner-up to James White on the Men’s Order of Merit in 2011, will seek to deliver more international success for the SGU when he competes in the South American Individual Amateur Championship later this month.
The Glenbervie player has been chosen to represent the SGU at Club Campestre Farallones, Cali in Colombia from Thursday 22 March to Sunday 25 March.
Robertson, promoted to the Men’s National Squad for 2012 after a superb season last year which included a maiden title success in the South East District Championship at Musselburgh, will be joined by the Scottish Ladies’ Golfing Association’s Jane Turner (Craigielaw) for the overseas event.
Twenty-three-old Robertson is a student at the University of Stirling and sat out the Men's winter performance programmes in Abu Dhabi and South Africa due to his studies. The Men’s Squad return from South Africa on 17 March and Robertson will fly to South America a day later for preparation.
The South American Individual Amateur Championship is sponsored by the R and A, who are largely funding the trip for Robertson and Turner.
Robertson, who earned a well-deserved maiden call-up to the Scotland Home Internationals side last August, will hope to deliver more success for the SGU after Brian Soutar’s stunning triumph in the South African Amateur Championship last Friday.
