Faldo Series :: Davidson triumphs

2014 06 Davidson Panmure1

Andrew Davidson of Charleton has won the Faldo Series Scotland Championship by two shots to secure a spot in his second successive Grand Final in the USA.


The 20-year-old closed with a one-over par round of 71 to win by two from overnight co-leaders Niall Mcmullen and Calum Fyfe.
"This win gets me a World Amateur Golf Ranking."

“I’m buzzing to be going back to The Greenbrier, I can’t wait,” said Davidson.

“This win gets me a World Amateur Golf Ranking, too, which was one of my main goals at the start of the season.”

Matthew Dalrymple of Lochwinnoch, who won the Boys' Under-16 division, will join Davidson at The Greenbrier. Niall Mcmullen will also be there after he birdied the fifth extra hole in a sudden death play-off, beating Calum Fyfe to the Boys’ Under-18 title.

The final two qualifying spots went to 2013 Faldo finalist Shannon Williams of Aboyne, who recorded a hole-in-one en route to a second-place finish in the Girls’ division, and Minto’s Tara Mactaggart, the winner by one shot.
