Day 1 Report: Play is underway

After a damp start an exciting first day at Castle Stuart is underway. Joseph Byrne from Ireland leads by 1 stroke with a score of 69, followed closely by Heejong Lim from Korea with 70.

The Players enjoyed benign weather conditions throughout yesterday’s Practice Round but were faced with the challenge of constant drizzle during play today.

First up on the tee at 07:30 were Gregorio De Leo from Italy, Ertugrul Gozegu from Turkey and Katarina Drocarova from Slovakia, who all did an excellent job of opening The Duke of York Young Champions Trophy 2018.

Junior golfers from 30 countries are taking part in The Duke of York Young Champions Trophy 2018.
