Sam Locke decision not to defend title opens way for a new champion at Blairgowrie

Scotland’s top male amateur golfers will congregate in Perthshire next week to battle it out for glory in the 2018 Scottish men’s amateur championship.
The event will take place at Blairgowrie Golf Club from Tuesday, July 31 to Sunday, August 5.
Competitors will play 36 holes of stroke-play over the Lansdowne and Rosemount courses, with the leading 64 players progressing to the match-play stages. 
 Stonehaven’s Sam Locke beat Ryan Lumsden 9 and 8 in the 36-hole final at Prestwick 12 months ago but Locke announced this afternoon that he was turning pro with immediate effect and will not be defending the title.
In total, 273 entries were received for the 2018 field of 264, with the handicap ballot falling at 4.7.*
The winner will again secure automatic entry to the Scotland team for the men’s home internationals, which will take place in Conwy, North Wales, from September 12 to 14. 
With free entry access to the public each day at Blairgowrie, Scottish Golf is encouraging fans of all ages to go along and watch Scotland’s top male amateur golfers in action.
