Youngest winner Jamie

OUR REPORT of the Montrose Open Golf Week does not tell the full story of the handicap winner, Jamie Beedie.

Jamie (13) is the youngest winner of that title. And he did it by having birdies at the first two extra holes in a play-off.

Two down with six to go, he powered a stunning fightback to level with four to play. The 15th and 16th were halved, and Jamie won the 17th to go dormie. But his drive at the 18th was bunkered and opponent S. Benson parred to square the final.

A stunning chip in at the first extra hole won it for Jamie. Both players drove well at the second extra hole, the 18th. Jamie’s second was centre green and his opponent’s ball over the back. The chip was close but Jamie’s 20 yarder rattled into the back of the hole.
