  • 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 take on Newton Shield Champions Juniors take on Newton Shield Champions

    Juniors take on Newton Shield Champions Elderslie welcomed the Newton Shield Champions, Old Ranfurly. The Champions fielded a strong team with the initial 3 players boasting handicaps of 2, 5 and 6! It was also a warm return for Aiden O’Hagan the current Elderslie Junior Open champion. The drives off the first were fantastic with Elderslie staying in touch, and commencing the tough battle. As Robert McIlroy, Scott McGrenaghan, Andy (Old Ranfurly Junior Convenor) and myself (Craig Campbell) watched the games it was exciting stuff.  2  games were quickly over (Lewis and Caolan), however the rest battled on to the last few holes.  The overall results are detailed below, however it does not state what a great night it was between two clubs who have become firm friends. Well done to Jack Tourish whose first Newton Shield performance resulted in a superb win. Also of note are the two reserve players who won their matches. Elderslie lost 5 – 1 Scores: Lewis Greenless (8) v Kieran O’Brian (5)  lost 6/5 Ben Campbell (8) v Matt Dalrimple (2) lost 4/2 Caolan McGoldrick (11) v Aiden O’Hagan (4)  lost 8/7 Heather Mushet (11) v Callum Bell (12) lost 3/2 Jack Tourish (24) v Ollie Weir (13) won 5/4 Evan Cole (24) v Arran Stirling (17) 1 down Jack Burns (15) v Callum Adams (17) won 3/2 Josh Campbell (20) v Alfie Sidebothan won 10/8  Results so far: Caldwell away – Halved Erskine at home – Elderslie Lost 4.5 to 1.5 Old Ranfurly – Elderslie Lost 5 – […]
