Gregor Graham set to continue golf development in America next year


Gregor Graham is planning to take his golfing talent to America next year.

The Scottish youth international, who hails from Blairgowrie, is anticipating a move to Midland College in Texas to help with the development of his game.

He hopes to make the switch in August of next year and will combine golf with studies.

The American route is one that worked for Perth and Kinross County stars Calum Hill and Danny Young, who have both played European Tour events this year.

“I’ve decided to go over to Midland, Texas,” Gregor told the PA this week. “I’ve verbally committed to going there next August. I’m excited to get to the warm weather and practice every day.

“I know Calum Hill went over there and now he is on the European Tour. It shows it works.

“I won’t have to worry about the weather and I’ll get a degree out of it as well. I’d hope to find something to do with management.”

For now, Gregor is reflecting on another weekend victory after taking top spot at the Stephen Gallacher Foundation Trophy.

Rounds of 73 and 69 secured the crown at Cardrona, near Peebles.

“I played pretty solid the first day. I just didn’t get anything going with the putter,” said Gregor.

“I was three behind going into the second day and all that was on my course guide was to go for it.

“I got away to a nice start and then made a few solid pars to finish the round, which was good enough.

“When you are leading you make sure not to make any mistakes, but when you are behind you know you have nothing to lose.

“I felt I could have been a few more under but did a nice job of making a few birdies.”

Fellow Blairgowrie and Barrie Douglas Foundation ambassador Cormac Sharpe took under-16 honours.

Gregor added: “It was a good weekend for the Barrie Douglas Foundation.

“I’m so grateful to them and Spencer Henderson for everything they do for us. It’s great support.

“All of the foundations have been putting on events for us through these hard times. If they weren’t doing it, I don’t know who would.

“I didn’t know how many events there would be, but I’ve been busy.”
