Young Scottish golfer afforded same honour as Jack Nicklaus crack a bombshell statement full details below….

Cameron Adam has joined 18-time major winner Jack Nicklaus and European Ryder Cup-winning captain Bernard Gallacher in becoming a current Honorary Member of The Royal Burgess Golfing Society.

The accolade was afforded to Adam in recognition of his achievement in landing last year’s Scottish Amateur Championship, carding course-record 63s on successive days at Royal Dornoch and Tain in the stroke-play qualifying before emerging as a worthy winner in the match-play stage at the former.

Over 50 members and guests were in attendance at a day of celebration for Adam at the Barnton club, with tributes made by both the captain, Martin Blencowe, and Stephen Gallacher, the latter having taken great pride in seeing Adam flourish as an ambassador for his junior foundation.

It was a week to remember for both Fraser Walters and his sister Stella – the talented duo are both Craigielaw members – in this year’s U.S. Kids Golf European Championships in East Lothian.

In an event that once again attracted talented young golfers from all around the world, the duo both landed impressive wins in their respective sections, both of which were played at Royal Musselburgh.

Fraser shot rounds of 70-70-67 for a nine under total and an eight-shot win in the boys’ 13-year-old category while Stella won the girls’ 11-year-old event by six shots following scores of 65-69-70 for a 12-under aggregate.

“For both children to win their respective age groups in this event is incredible,” said dad Stephen. “Fraser has wanted to win this championship since he was seven years old and Stella was especially determined this year after placing second in 2023.

“We are very proud of these two. Their character and determination for the sport impresses us every day.”
