Kevin Duncan Joins Paul Lawrie Foundation stable

Kevin Duncan is the latest North-east based professional to gain support from the Paul Lawrie Foundation as he joins the 1999 Open Champion’s stable.
The 27 year old from Ellon entered the professional ranks at the start of the year (playing to a +3 handicap at the time).  He secured playing rights on the EuroPro Tour circuit and played the majority of his golf on this stage.
A former Junior Club Champion at Ellon Golf Club, Kevin gained a Golf Scholarship to the Clayton State University in Atlanta, Georgia in 2008 where he competed for two years, playing in the NCAA Championships as part of his College team.
Kevin, who has won three times on the NE Alliance circuit this season, currently leads the Order of Merit table. He commented on becoming a Foundation-supported player:   
“I was delighted to get the message from Paul, which came a little out of the blue.  I am really grateful to have been selected.  The financial support is great and will help with the costs of competing but most important is having access to Paul who has played at the highest level for a long time.  Being able to seek his advice will be invaluable.”
As a Foundation player, Kevin will be attached to the Paul Lawrie Golf Centre where he’ll have full use of the first-class facilities.  He’ll also be able to seek advice from Paul, tapping-in to his vast knowledge and experience of the professional game.

The Paul Lawrie Golf Centre is to sponsor next Wednesday's North-east Alliance at Oldmeldrum Golf Club .
It’s a standard sponsorship amount - which gives each of the 15 (five scratch, five Class 1 handicap and five Class 2 handicap) prizewinners £10 extra) 
Craig Dempster, Director of Golf at Paul Lawrie Golf Centre said, “The Paul Lawrie Golf Centre is happy to support the North East Alliance through our sponsorship of the Oldmeldrum event.  The Alliances provide an opportunity for competitive golf over the winter months and are good fun, social occasions.  
"With 90 or so playing most weeks, they are also a popular way for golfers to experience some of the excellent golf courses in the region.  Good luck to everyone competing next week.”
