What a tremendous win for 16 year old Oliver Mukherjee (Gullane) who was crowned the Scottish Amateur Champion this afternoon at Gailes Links in Ayrshire. Having beat Lothians Champion and last year's runner up, Connor Wilson (Castle Park), by 3&2 in the semi final, he took on Gregor Tait (Aldeburgh) in the final. Gregor had beaten the 2019 runner up, Lewis irvine (Kirkhill), by the same margin, in the other semi final. The final finished with Oliver winning by one hole. A great win following an impressive performance from one of a talented family of young golfers all of whom we will hear a lot more about in the future.
That makes it 3 wins out of the last 4 Scottish Amateur Championships for Lothians players following Euan Macintosh (Turnhouse) (2018) and Angus Carrick (Craigielaw) (2021)
