Jack Currie is crowned RGU Boys Stroke Play Champion

Jack Currie of Greenock Golf Club has become the second 14 year old player in a row to win the Renfrewshire Golf Union Stroke Play Championship. He won the Caven Trophy, sponsored this year by Paisley based family run company STRATHAND SECURITY in blustery conditions at Whitecraigs Golf Club. 
In the morning round he scored 73 which was matched by Stephen Wilson – Greenock Whinhill with their nearest challengers scoring 76.
In the afternoon Jack held his composure well despite being 5 over par after 6 holes following a bit of a disastrous start. However he completed the remainder of the course in level par to finish with a 75 for a total of 148. Stephen Wilson was his nearest challenger but faded a bit after lunch and scored 78 for a total of 151 which put him in runner up position. Third place went to another 14 year old Matthew Dalrymple – Lochwinnoch Golf Club with a total of 153 with Anthony McAuley - Greenock Whinhill a further stroke back on 154.
The sixteen leading qualifiers now compete for the Freedman Trophy over Kilmacolm Golf Club where Stephen Wilson – Greenock Whinhill will be looking to retain his title of RGU Boys Match Play Champion.
The courtesy of Whitecraigs Golf Club given to the Renfrewshire Golf Union was much appreciated by all who took part.
