Jack’s the lad for Scottish pro-am

Torwoodlee Golf Club member Jack McDonald was selected to play in the Scottish Pro-Am, which took place at Gullane yesterday.

The 13-year-old Galashiels Academy pupil travelled up to Edinburgh Castle on Tuesday night to be introduced to the other players taking part in the open tournament.

Jack was also due to meet with Nicola Sturgeon before playing with Alex Salmond and a Tour Pro yesterday.

His father Scott has been taking Jack to junior coaching for the whole of the winter and he was selected for the dedication he has shown and also the improvement in his game.
