  • Outstanding Performance by Alasdair McDougall Outstanding Performance by Alasdair McDougall

    Alasdair McDougall took the next step in his golfing career and grabbed another bunch of world ranking points with a fantastic performance in the 36-hole qualifier for the Amateur Championship – a competition contested for by many of the world’s leading amateur golfers. Alasdair started early, at 7:11 a.m. to be bleary-eyed precise, on Monday at Pyle & Kinfig, setting the tone with a birdie at the 1st hole on his way to a mightily impressive 69 to sit 15th after the first round. With 64 players and ties making it through to the matchplay stage there was still work to be done and Alasdair delivered, and then some. In wet and windy conditions at Royal Porthcawl, the main course for the event, the young Elderslie phenom, carded another 3 under par round for a 138 total and the clubhouse lead eventually finishing second, 2 back of countryman and current Australian Amateur Champion, Conor Syme. When asked whether Alasdair could give us something for the website he responded, “Played very well in tough conditions, controlled the ball nicely, and my pace putting was exceptionally good”. Responding for his golf club is something that Alasdair is known for. Unlike some other elite amateurs, Alasdair is always one of the first to make himself available to represent his club and this was demonstrated by his recent appearances – one for a Newton Shield game 24 hours after his transatlantic return from William Woods University in Missouri where he had just completed a very successful sophomore year and […]

  • Juniors Fight for a great Half Juniors Fight for a great Half

    Elderslie were welcomed to Erskine last night. With Erskine keen to take the points, and their first 3 players having low handicaps (2 – 8) we knew it would be a tall order to take anything from the game.  Regardless Lewis, Ben and Caolan lead the way and fought bravely to take all 3 players to the 16 and 17th hole. Behind them young Rhys, Jack and Evan utilised their handicaps to try and restore some Elderslie pride. This is where the tie heated up, all 3 Elderslie players fluctuated from being behind to even.  Confident Rhys slowly pulled away to win his game on the 16th with Evan and Jack T continuing to fight. Consistent Evan won on the 17th  with a super chip to 1ft. So it was down to Jack T , 1 down through 15, he played wonderfull to win the next to holes and half the 18th to win his match Not forgetting the reserve match with Josh C and Josh G , this resulted in a tight match that would have resulted in a Elderslie win (we ended on 17th due to timings). A great game played in a friendly manner; all the kids (and the adults) enjoyed the great food afterwards and the interesting speeches. Scores: Lewis Greenless (8) lost 3/1 Ben Campbell (8) lost 3/2 Caolan McGoldrick (11) lost 7/5 (speech!!) Evan Cole (26) won 2/1 Rhys McIlroy won 3/2 Jack Tourish won 1 up   Results so far: Caldwell away – Halved Erskine at home – […]

It was great to watch them tee off from the first and heading out to battle against the course as well as the temperatures. A long and fun day witnessed 8 players make it through to the quarter finals to be played Thu, however all the kids were winners (including the Dads, who looked like they required first aid !)   Players through: Ben Campbell/Jack Burns/Josh Campbell/Jack Tourish/Rhys McIlroy/Evan Cole/Caolan McGoldrick/Josh Gray
