Home win for young Renfrewshire team


With a number of regular players involved in other tournaments, Renfrewshire Golf Union had to select four boys who had never represented the county previously for the home game at Ranfurly Castle Golf Club. 

The first of those, Jack Crawford from Mearns Castle, was three down with three to play and showed great courage and skill to fight back for a halved game.   
Elderslie’s Jorg Irving then put points on the board with a solid two hole win and Fraser Lawrie (Lochwinnoch) showed no first time nerves as he overcame Strathendrick’s David Hood 5 and 4.

With one of the team not showing up, due to travel problems, giving a walk over to Stirlingshire, the performance of the new recruits eased the worries of the management team and these were further dispelled as the more regular team members did what was required.  A special mention for Tom Mackenzie of East Renfrewshire who is unbeaten this season and for Darragh Cuddihy who beat Stirlingshire’s top player comfortably.

With an away draw and a win already achieved, Renfrewshire is starting to have aspirations of the West of Scotland title and will entertain Ayrshire at Greenock on July 5.
 Renfrewshire 5.5, Stirlingshire 2.5
Jack Crawford (Mearns Castle) halved with Tyler Morgan (Falkirk)

Tom MacKenzie (East Renfrewshire) bt Gregor Johnston (Bridge of Allan) 4 and 3

Jorg Irving (Elderslie) bt Max Miller (Falkirk Tryst) 2 holes

Fraser Lawrie (Lochwinnoch) bt David Hood (Strathendrick) 5and 4

Alistair McNaughton (Caldwell) bt Fraser Laird (Glenbervie) 3 and 1

Cameron Jones (Greenock) lost to Stuart Murray (Falkirk) 4 and 2

Darragh Cuddihy (Gourock) bt Calun Bauchop (Glenbervie) 3 and 2

+Renfrewshire conceded a walk-over to Stirlingshire in the remaining match between two un-named players. The Renfrewshire player could not play because of travel problems.
