Saturday Practice for The British Boys
Everyone is eagerly awaiting the start of the Championship proper, when these future golfing superstars will test their skills against the demands of this glorious links course.
Kilmarnock (Barassie) opened it's doors today to some of the best young golfers in Europe when official practice for the 2010 Boys’ Amateur Championship began at 7 am this morning.
Warm sunshine was the order of the day until a cool south westerly breeze moved in throughout the day to give the course a more familiar feel. Feedback from the players on the golf course was very positive with many commenting on the true putting surfaces which will undoubtedly get quicker and firmer as the week goes on. Players were also delighted with the practice set up with long game, short game and putting practice facilities all available within a few yards of the Club House.
Weather predictions for the next couple of days indicate that cloud and occasional rain may replace today's sunshine but prospects for the remainder of the week are more positive.
