Calum Grant top scores for D&E
College in West Virginia

Calum Grant from Linlithgow, a freshman student at Davis & Elkins College, West Virginia, top-scored for his college team, despite a 29-over-par total of 245 in the WVIAC Championship at Stonewall Resort in Roanoke, West Virginia this week.
In what must have been rough weather conditions - the best second-round score by anyone was a six-over-par 78, Calum had rounds of 85, 82 and 78 to finish in joint 20th position.
This is one of Calum's first appearances on the US colllege golf circuit after the NCAA administration refused to give him clearance to play. The reasons are not clear on this side of the Atlantic.
Team-mate Alasdair Forsythe from Glasgow, also a freshman, finished joint 45th on 255 with scores of 86, 91 and 78.
Matt Glissy (Fairmont State University) was the individual winner with scores of 72, 78 and 72 for six-over 222. He won by seven strokes.
Davis & Elkins College finished 14th of 15 in the team event.
That's the last competitive event for Calum and Alasdair until the spring. The US college golf season has a winter hiatus, which seems to start rather early, i.e. before the end of October, and go on a bit long, i.e. no events until late March-early April.
But the Scots have something to look forward to before that. The golf squad have been promised a trip to Orlando, Florida.
