Lanark’s Kevin Prentice reached final of County Boys Matchplay Golf

THIRTY years apart, Lanark father and son Alan and Kevin Prentice both became junior champions during their respective tenures as junior captains at Lanark Golf Club.

And Kevin (18), of Auctioneers Way, could easily have emulated his dad’s outstanding achievement of winning the 1982 County Boys Matchplay title after enjoying a glorious run to the final of this year’s tournament at Carluke. The Lanark teenager took final opponent Kieren Stark all the way to the 22nd hole earlier this month before finally succumbing to defeat.
