• Jacques Leglise Trophy taking place at Royal Dornoch
• GB&I will be looking to continue their impressive record
SANDY SCOTT | CALUM FYFE | JACQUES LEGLISE TROPHY
Scottish duo Sandy Scott and Calum Fyfe have been rewarded for their excellent seasons by being selected for the 2015 Jacques Leglise Trophy.
Taking place on home soil at Royal Dornoch from August 28-29, the pair are part of a nine-man Great Britain & Ireland team which will be managed by Peter McEvoy OBE as they take on Europe, where they will be looking to continue an impressive record in the match.
Last year, GB&I won 12.5-11.5 in Barseback, Sweden, their 37th win overall compared Europe’s ten and Scott and Fyfe will be aiming to follow on from their team success with Scotland in the Boys Home Internationals at Conwy GC earlier this month.
Nairn’s Scott, 17, who won three times in 40 days at the Stephen Gallacher Foundation Trophy, the Men’s East of Scotland Championship and the Scottish Boys Open Stroke Play Championship, unsurprisingly tops the SGU Boys Order of Merit and played a pivotal role in Scotland’s first Boys Home Internationals win since 2006, collecting four-and-a-half points from a possible six.
Fyfe, meanwhile, claimed the SGU Boys Order of Merit last year after a consistent season which included five top five finishes and a win at the Scottish Hydro Junior Tour event at Moray. The 18-year-old, who plays out of Cawder, has followed that up in 2015 by finishing runner-up to Scott at the Scottish Boys Open Stroke Play at Royal Burgess, while collecting three-and-a-half out of a possible six points at Conwy.
Three members of that team will return for this year’s match at Royal Dornoch: England’s Marco Penge and Bradley Moore and Tim Harry from Wales. Penge reached the semi-finals of last week’s Boys Amateur Championship at Royal Birkdale and has notched up three wins this season, including the Scottish Open Stroke Play Championship.
The full team is:
• Ben Chamberlain (Padeswood & Buckley, Wales);
• William Enefer (Wrekin, England);
• Calum Fyfe (Cawder, Scotland);
• Tim Harry (Vale Resort, Wales);
• Bradley Moore © (Kedleston Park, England);
• Thomas Mulligan (Co Louth, Ireland);
• Marco Penge (Golf at Goodwood, England);
• Sandy Scott (Nairn, Scotland);
• Thomas Williams (Wrexham, Wales).
The format for the Jacques Leglise Trophy match is four foursomes ties each morning, eight singles matches on the afternoon of Friday, August 28 and nine singles matches on the afternoon of Saturday, August 29.
