Scottish Amateur :: Robb secures hat-trick

2014 08 Scot Am Winner 4

Meldrum House man Chris Robb stormed to victory in the Scottish Amateur Championship at Downfield - and, in the process, racked up his third win on the bounce.


Robb added his Scottish Amateur crown to his East of Scotland Championship victory in June this year, and the Cameron Corbett Vase which he won on the Scottish Golf Union’s Men’s Order of Merit.

The 23-year-old saw off the challenge of Glenbervie’s Graeme Robertson 4&3 in their 36-hole final, played out in difficult, wet conditions over the Open qualifying venue in Dundee.

With his win, Robb joins the likes of Charlie Green, Colin Montgomerie, Stephen Gallacher and Dean Robertson, on the Scottish Amateur trophy.

And the former Boys’ international is keen to make the most of things when his confidence is high.
"Confidence is everything really.” - Chris Robb

“My matchplay record has not been good, but I suppose you can say it’s good now,” said Robb, coached by Neil Marr.

“It’s been a good run. I’ve won the last three tournaments I’ve played in, so I’d like to keep that record going.

“Once you can get a couple of good results, you just learn, build on it and get a bit of confidence going - confidence is everything really.”

Helped by having friend Liam Johnston on his bag, Robb came out on top in the 256-man field, playing nine matchplay rounds before lifting the coveted Scottish Amateur silverware on a tough day for scoring.
"This win hasn’t really sunk in yet. It always sinks in the day after I think.” - Chris Robb

“I’m very pleased with how things went,” added Robb. “The weather could have been nicer, but it’s been really nice all week. It was cold as well.

“The wind was completely the other direction to what we played the rest of the week, so it was difficult. This win hasn’t really sunk in yet. It always sinks in the day after I think.”

Scottish Amateur :: Robertson taking the positives


Runner-up Graeme Robertson, remained philosophical despite his defeat at the hands of Robb.

“It’s still been a great week,” said the 26-year-old from Glenbervie. “It’s the best I’ve done in the Scottish Amateur. Second is still a really good achievement.”
