A Historic Day for Scottish Golf

Scottish Golf, the new unified governing body for the sport in Scotland, has teed off its first day by securing a major sponsorship deal with Aberdeen Asset Management as the organisation unveiled its new look.
At an historic day in St Andrews, the Home of Golf, the new body – an amalgamation of the Scottish Golf Union (SGU) and the Scottish Ladies’ Golfing Association (SLGA) – was launched in the company of a number of Scotland’s leading tour professionals and amateurs, joined by local youngsters from the ClubGolf programme.
Aberdeen Asset Management global golf ambassadors, former Open champion Paul Lawrie, Scotland’s highest-ranked player Marc Warren and Ladies European Tour duo Pamela Pretswell and Carly Booth, teamed up with Walker Cup star Ewen Ferguson and last year’s Scottish Ladies Amateur champion, Gabrielle Macdonald, to celebrate the occasion.
