Alexander Culverwell wins The Battle Trophy at Crail Golfing Society, Fife, Scotland

Bookmark and Share

After a wobble (3 over after 8), Alexander (Zander) of Dunbar Golf Club steadied himself with three threes on 9, 10 and 11 allowing him the luxury of dropping two strokes on the 14th (the most difficult hole on the course) before playing the last four holes in regulation to win the inaugural The Battle Trophy at Crail Craighead Links.

Having played in a Scottish Universities tournament on Craighead two years ago, and being brought up in Dunbar, Zander’s experience helped him get the better of a very strong field, packed with talent.

For the first Order of Merit event held at Crail Craighead, it was a terrific start and points towards a bright future for this event.

Our congratulations go to Zander on his 1st SGU Ranking event win with some solid scoring around a very good test of golf at Craighead Links.

In 2nd place, 4 shots adrift on +2, 290, was Scott Gibson, followed by Matthew Clark (292) of Kilmacolm.

Michael Stewart, David Law and Graeme Robertson finished on 293.

A full list of scores is detailed below.
