Daniel Hendry earns spot in team for Pugilia

DUBAI-BASED Daniel Hendry is in a strong-looking Scottish team competing in this week's boys' quadrangular event against hosts Italy, France and Sweden in Pugilia.

Hendry, who won the Emirates Golf Federation's Junior Order of Merit last year, was selected along with Grant Forrest, Jack McDonald, Liam Johnston, Ewan Scott and Bradley Neil on the back of performing well on his Scotland debut during the Boys' Home Internationals last summer. He also finished fourth in the Scottish Boys Stroke Play Championship at Craigielaw.

"We have a very talented squad with a good blend of experience as well as two of our most promising youngsters in Ewan and Bradley," said team captain Stuart Wilson, the former Open Championship Silver Medal winner.
