Young golfers play Royal Troon the day after Henrik Stenson's victory in The Open

Four young golfers enjoyed the opportunity of a lifetime when they teed off at Royal Troon just one day after Henrik Stenson became the Champion Golfer of the Year.

Two Scottish players were joined by golfers from Korea for a friendly match organised by Doosan, a Patron of The Open, over the famous Ayrshire links; the venue for The 145th Open where Stenson held off Phil Mickelson in a thrilling duel to win his maiden Major title.

Nominated to play by Scottish Golf, Jack Broun and Greg Dalziel represented Scotland in the team better ball stroke play match over 18 holes.

Minkyu Kim and Sang Ha Park, from the KJ Choi Foundation, which is supported by Doosan, triumphed on the day with a 67 to 69 victory.

The KJ Choi Foundation works to promote high level junior golf, as well as provide opportunities for underprivileged children to play the game in Korea. Doosan showed its support for The Open and The R&A by helping to grow the game across both countries.

Broun (Ayr Belleisle) and Dalziel (Airdrie) will now compete in this week’s Scottish Boys’ Open Stroke Play Championship at Lanark GC.
