Connor Graham has a busy September lined up, as the young Scot has been selected for Junior Ryder Cup duty.

Graham will be part of a 12-strong team heading to Italy, where the match will be contested over Golf Nazionale, before a session of singles at Marco Simone on the eve of the men’s contest getting underway.

It means that the Blairgowrie teenager will be representing GB&I at the Walker Cup at the Old Course in St Andrews, before then representing his continent weeks later in Italy.

Graham was selected by Europe’s Junior Ryder Cup captain Stephen Gallacher. Gallacher, who made his Ryder Cup debut in 2014, said:

“I would like to congratulate the players selected to represent Europe in the 2023 Junior Ryder Cup. They have all performed brilliantly over the past year and their selection is fully justified.

“I’ve been to several of the qualification events this year and I’ve been blown away by the standard of golf on show. We’ve got a very strong team and it is going to be a fiercely contested tournament against the United States.

“It is a tremendous honour to be their captain and I am looking forward to working with and showcasing the most exciting future talent in Europe.

“We are relishing the prospect of taking on the United States in Rome and playing the final day single matches at Marco Simone will be a memorable experience for both sets of players.”

Graham joins a team of six boys and six girls, in a competition that has previously featured the likes of Scottie Scheffler, Jordan Spieth and Rory McIlroy.

Before jetting out to Italy, Graham will become one of the youngest Walker Cup competitors, after being selected by Stuart Wilson for the biennial contest against the USA. Graham will join up with Scotland teammate Calum Scott at the Old Course on the 2nd and 3rd September.

It’s set to cap a successful year for Graham, who plays to a handicap of plus six, after he won this year’s Scottish Men’s Open strokeplay championship.
