With the 25-year-old Australian Craig

though more than blustery showers to

take lirst prize at the Scottish Open, the

golting game is looking good lor young players. Increasingly so, in tact, as the

lew English prolessionals being invited to Livingston last year. However, this is the lirst time that the event has been made open. It the rest at the world is not very well represented, with only

- one Spaniard and tour Dutchmen

joining the “plenty Englishmen, one or

two Welshmen and ninety something

Scotsmen‘ according to Sandy Jones,

regional secretary at the Prolessional

Gollers Association, he believes it is a step in the right direction.

‘Our intention is to create an opportunity tor these people to play in an event, very early in their career, in Scotland, which is obviously the home or golt,’ says Sandy. And when he says early, he means it. Some ol the

: hopetuls contending the £20,000 prize

lurid are as young as seventeen. While the £3,300 lirst prize is only a

traction ol Parry‘s win, it is quite

enough to make detending champion Paul Lawrie at Aberdeen determined to retain the title, not torthe glory, but to add to the 28,000 he has netted already this year. It will not be an easy task, with the leading money winner on the 1991 Tartan Tour, Colin Gillies in good lorm, as are Calum Innes and Glenmuir Matchplay Champion, Andrew MacDueen.

Should the weather turn had, golt‘s

most notorious ot tashion accessories,

the umbrella, will certainly be in evidence. Forthe trendy, Sandy Jones recommends ‘anything with a huge logo on it. Ping, Dunlop, Menzuno. Anything. The biggerthe logo and costlierthe umbrella the better.‘ (Thom Dibdin)

The linal day at the Gore-tex Fabrics Scottish under25's Open Championship is Friday, the 25th at July. The Deer Park and Golt and Country Club is just all the Livingston turn-oil on the M8. Entrance is tree.
