Over thirty six of the best disabled golfers from Scotland, England and
Germany have just finalised the title race for disabled golf's Order of Merit
Championship for 2013.

St Andrews, at the Kittocks and Duke's Golf Courses and the overall winner,
after over 20 qualifying rounds since March, at venues across Scotland
and England, was Trevor Crombie of Kirkcaldy
Peter Osborne, the Scottish Chairman, himself taking a third place in the
Championship, said, "We have played some quality golf courses this year,
ranging across Scotland and down into England and it's great to see Trevor,
one of our newer members, taking the Championship.  We hope that this will
encourage him to attend some international and overseas disabled golf events
in 2014".
"We had over fifty disabled golfers competing in our Merit Championships
this year and we hope that this will give the chance to many more of our
younger members and beginners to the game, to take on a more competitive
type of competition and challenge".
