Helensburgh’s junior golfers will enjoy a day out at Muckhart Golf Club in Clackmannanshire on Sunday at the final of the Junior Golf Sixes.

The tournament is part of a series of events organised in support of the 2019 Solheim Cup to encourage the country’s young people to play golf.

Helensburgh will be one of just 16 clubs from across the whole of Scotland represented in the finals on Sunday after team members Chloe Stirling, Arthur Tynan, Alex Stewart, Mark O’Rourke, Tom McVeigh and Mikey Thomas overcame the challenge of their Bearsden counterparts in the home-and-away semi-final.

This year’s Solheim Cup will see the best female golfers from Europe and the USA compete in three days of matchplay action at Gleneagles from Friday, September 13, with practice matches on Monday before two days of Junior Solheim Cup action on Tuesday and Wednesday, and the opening ceremony on Thursday.

Meanwhile, back at Helensburgh, David Gethin enjoyed one of the best rounds of his golfing life in the latest Senior Midweek Medal when he beat his age by two shots – a feat rarer than the elusive hole in one.

Scoring a gross 75, with 14 pars in his round, the 77-year-old, playing off a handicap of nine, won the medal with 40 stableford points, one better than runner-up Donnie Nicholson.
