Congratulations to Junior Tour member Connor McKinney on his superb victory yesterday at Glenbervie. Connor was in contention after day one with a one over par 72 but conditions were much more difficult on the second day with blustery winds and bouts of rain. Connor had a few bogies early on but he remained determined and fought all the way and on the difficult sloping 18th green he knew he needed a birdie to stay in with a chance. Calmly waiting for the strong wind to drop he holed his downhill 15ft putt which got him into a four way sudden death play-off.
Easily the smallest of the boys in the play-off he was at a disadvantage in terms of distance, particularly as the 1st hole was a par 5. He hit his best drive of the day but his fairway wood came up 40 yards short of the green. None of the boys reached the green in two so it was down to the short game. Well known at “Tour School” for his ability with wedges, Connor rehearsed his shot several times and hit a fabulous chip to one inch! The other boys missed their first putts so Connor had a simple tap in for a magnificent victory.
Connor is already looking forward to defending his title next year at Craigielaw where his short game ability will be required on the challenging greens.
