Blairgowrie trio Gregor Graham, Cormac Sharpe and Katy Alexander took on the roles of Ambassadors for the Barrie Douglas Foundation this week as they competed in the Scottish Boys and Girls’ Championships being played over their home course.
The Barrie Douglas Foundation was established in memory of the well-known Perth businessman who died after taking ill in Spain while captaining the Scotland squad at the European Boys Team Championships.
National coach and Foundation trustee Spencer Henderson said:
“Gregor, Cormac and Katy are all progressing very well and given Barrie’s close ties to Perth and Kinross Golf, in particular, we are thrilled that they have accepted these ambassadorial roles."
“We are keen to support them in any way we can and help with their ongoing development."
“They will be sporting the Foundation logo on their new Druids kit and raising awareness of our work at tournaments.”
We are thrilled that they have accepted these ambassadorial roles.
Scotland U18 internationalist Gregor (15) is a two times winner of the Blackadders Barrie Douglas Scottish Junior Masters and currently leads the U18 Order of Merit.
Like fellow international squad member and Blairgowrie youngster Cormac (15), a Paul Lawrie Junior Jug winner, he featured in the Scottish team which won an international Quadrangular event, with backing from the Foundation.
Gregor recently helped the Scots to a bronze at the European Boys Team Championships in Poland.
Scottish Schools Girls team member and 2019 county girls’ champion Katy (18) has also won the Girls Junior Tour event at the St Andrews Dukes course.
The trio are among 200 youngsters taking part in the national championships over the Lansdowne and Rosemount courses, with the action continuing today and tomorrow (Saturday). We wish everyone the best of luck and hope they scoop up a trophy!
