  • Ewen Ferguson up for Young Sports Personality award
  • The 19-year-old has enjoyed huge success throughout 2015
  • Scotland also been nominated in Team of the Year category

Scottish Amateur Golfer of the Year Ewen Ferguson has been nominated for the Young Sports Personality award at this week’s Sunday Mail and sportscotland Scottish Sports Awards.

The 19-year-old, who was also part of the GB&I’s Walker Cup-winning team at Royal Lytham & St Annes in September, will be hoping to follow in the footsteps of former Scotland squad team-mate Bradley Neil, who won the award 12 months ago following his Amateur Championship success.

As well as Walker Cup selection, Ferguson, who is currently in Abu Dhabi with the Scotland squad, won twice in his first full season at Men’s level and went on to qualify for the US Amateur Championship.

After becoming the highest-ranked Scot, the Bearsden teenager clinched the Scottish Amateur Golfer of the Year award just days before his Walker Cup debut, where he recorded an excellent singles victory over world No.2 Maverick McNealy.

Ferguson is up against swimmer Duncan Scott, the most successful athlete at the European Junior Championships in Baku in July, and world junior rowing champions Josh Armstrong and Gavin Horsburgh for the award.

But that isn’t the only award he’s up for. As well as all of his achievements mentioned above, Ferguson was also part of the Scotland side which won the European Amateur Team Championship in Sweden for the first time since 2009, with the team up for Team of the Year.



Ferguson, his Walker Cup-winning team-mates Grant Forrest and Jack McDonald, Graeme Robertson, Connor Syme and Greig Marchbank followed the feats of Colin Montgomerie, who was part of the victorious line-up that remarkably won over the same course in the same event in 1985.

However, the Scots face stiff competition in the category, and are up against Scottish Cup winners Inverness Caledonian Thistle and rugby Pro 12 winners Glasgow Warriors.
