As the two opponents finalise their preparation on their first step to golfing greatness, all the signs point to a repeat of the famous match between Watson and Nicklaus way back in 1977. Kilmarnock Barassie has kept the best to last. There is not a cloud in the sky ...the sun is bright ...there is no wind ...and the course is in superb condition.
Will the sporting gods give Spain a hat-trick of wins ...the European Championship, the World Cup and now the Boys Amateur? ...or will Germany's determine approach triumph?
Time will tell, as it all gets under way in just over 30 minutes ...30 nerve-jangling minutes to get the drives honed to perfection, the putts straight and true get, but most of all, the head in gear.
Will it be Hasta la Vista or Auf Wiedersehen? Two rounds and eight hours and we shall know
