Robb wins Scottish Amateur over Robertson
DUNDEE CITY, Scotland (August 2, 2014) — Meldrum House’s Chris Robb last night claimed his biggest amateur title, the Fairstone Scottish Amateur Championship at Downfield, and made it three-wins-in-a-row on home soil in 2014.

The 23-year-old saw off the challenge of Glenbervie’s Graeme Robertson 4&3 in their 36-hole final, played out in difficult, wet conditions over the superb former Open qualifying venue in Dundee.

Having won the East of Scotland Championship at the end of June and then the Cameron Corbett Vase on the Scottish Golf Union’s Men’s Order of Merit, Robb put the seal on a superb month’s golf after securing the nation’s flagship amateur event.

Joining a roll of honour that includes Charlie Green, Colin Montgomerie, Stephen Gallacher and Dean Robertson, Robb takes the trophy back to Aberdeen for the first time since the second of David Law’s Scottish Amateur wins in 2011.
