FORMBY, England – The Scottish Golf Union’s (SGU) decision to name it’s six-man European Championship team today was called into question with results from British Amateur qualifying.
Five of the six are in action here this week. Only Glenn Campbell is missing.
The SGU won’t be happy to see that four of the remaining five missed the cut at Formby. Gavin Dear is the only one through to the match play stages.
Paul O’Hara, Ross Kellett, Wallace Booth and Michael Stewart all failed to advance.
It begs the question: Why was there such a hurry to name the team? Surely the SGU could have waited until early this week, thereby affording the luxury to adjusting the team based on performances here this week.
I’ll never understand governing bodies.
