5 P&K Players in Scotland Squads!!!

Absolutely incredible news "hot off the press".

Scottish Golf have announced their squads for this year's Home Internationals.

In the Girls event, Strathmore's Megan Ashley and our new Scottish Amateur Girls Champion Katy Alexander from Blairgowrie are included in the squad that will play at Downfield between 7th & 9th August.

In the Boys event, Blairgowrie duo of Gregor Graham and Cormac Sharpe are joined in the sqaud by Muckhart's Andrew Thornton.  They will play at Ashburnham in Wales between 6th & 8th August.

For our "small" county to have 5 players selected to play is just incredible.

So much effort has gone into developing our Junior Set Up with coaching and events that enhance what has been happening at club level.  The vision and changes adopted at County Level a number of years ago that mirror Scottish Golf's Development & Performance Acadamies is now delivering the success we see today.

There are too many people to thank for helping make this happen, but most notably it was the change of direction put in place by the late Barrie Douglas, supported by the P&K Exec, then followed up at Club & County level by Stuart Graham, Iain Butchart, Rodney Neil and others.

This is now continuing at Milnathort with Gillian and Alastair Wallace and their team, at Muckhart with Rosemary Turlik and all her team, Strathmore continue to buck all national trends with Iain, Dawn, Frankie, Jackie and all their helpers.  We have some re-surgence in the North of the County with all the efforts of Susi Lumsden at Taymouth, Pitlochry are now laying the foundations again, as are Kinross, Crieff, Auchterarder and Murrayshall.  The introduction of the "Golf 6's" programme will really boost these Clubs next year. 

A special mention must go to all the parents who spend their lives as taxi drivers taking our players to all points of the compass locally, nationally and even internationally - your assistance and support is really appreciated.

We may be one of the smallest "Counties" in terms of numbers - but our framework and structure is in place and having 5 players selected to represent their country is just simply INCREDIBLE!  Well Done Everyone in P&K.
