Home Internationals :: new look team Scotland

2014 08 Ks Scot Am 1041

Scottish Amateur champion Chris Robb is one of five new faces selected in a new look Scotland side for next week’s Men’s Home Internationals in Wales.


The 23-year-old claimed a third straight domestic success at Downfield last weekend, winning the SGU’s flagship event with a 4&3 victory over Glenbervie’s Graeme Robertson.

Robb’s impressive form has now earned him a debut in Scotland’s 11-man side seeking to repeat their 2012 triumph in the Home Internationals at Southerndown GC from August 13–15, and Robb can’t wait to try and claim the trophy for Scotland.
"I played well finishing up in the US and from then on I’ve just kept it going." -  Chris Robb

“I was hoping to have done enough having won the Scottish Amateur, and I’m now looking forward to representing Scotland at men’s level after previously playing at boys’ level in the Homes and Europeans,” said the 23-year-old.

“I’ve had a good few tournaments. I played well finishing up in the US and from then on I’ve just kept it going.

“As far as Scottish golf is concerned, I’ve not been fantastic since the junior days, I suppose. I won the North East amateur two years ago, but other than that, not much until now, so it’s been great to win the East of Scotland Championship, the Cameron Corbett Vase and then the Scottish Amateur.”

Robb is joined in the Scotland side by four other new faces for the Men’s Home Internationals, namely Irish Open Strokeplay champion Jamie Savage (Cawder), last year’s Scottish Amateur semi-finalist Craig Ross (Kirkhill), ex boys’ captain Greig Marchbank (Thornhill) and Sutherland Chalice victor Adam Dunton (McDonald).

Southerness’ Scott Gibson also returns to the line-up for the first time since 2011, while a quintet of experienced players are looking forward to further Home Internationals competition.

Palmer Cup winning duo James Ross (Royal Burgess) and Kilmarnock Barassie’s Jack McDonald have made the team, as has Scottish Amateur runner-up Graeme Robertson, who’s making his fourth appearance in the event.
