Hill finishes off school career in style

Merchiston star wins The Shire

MERCHISTON ACADEMY pupil Calum Hill had the fairytale ending to his time playing golf for Merchiston Academy as he won the Shire Trophy to add to the ISGA Scottish Open and ISGA British School victories that he recorded earlier in the year, meaning he holds all three major ISGA titles in the same year.

When it comes down to it, playing consistently well and winning in the big events is an extremely difficult task, but one that Hill, who is preparing to head off to the University of Louisiana, has managed in his final year as a pupil.

Two double bogeys in the opening six holes meant Hill’s chances of winning the tournament were looking slim. However, an impressive run of seven birdies in 11 holes saw him card a three-under-par 69 final score to finish one shot ahead

of England Boys’ international George Mullins.

“I have never seen live such an impressive run of figures from anyone,” said Alan Murdoch, director of the Merchiston Golf Academy. “It was truly inspirational golf to watch. I wish Calum all the future success in his golf and studies.”
