Golf: Forrest gets his latest title tilt underway in British Boys' championship
The Craigielaw golfer, who won the Scottish under-18 matchplay crown earlier this season, was one of 252 players teeing up in the qualifying stage of an event that boasts a list of winners that includes Jose Maria Olazabal, Sergio Garcia and Rhys Davies.
Simon Fairburn, the Lothians Boys' champ, was also in action today while Kilmarnock's Jack McDonald, a member of the Barassie club, was hoping to make home advantage count against a quality international field.
"Barassie is a course where it's important to have local knowledge," said the former Scottish Boys' Strokeplay champion. "I've played Dundonald a lot too so that will be a big advantage this week."
Blairgowrie's Bradley Neil, winner of both the Scottish and English under-14 titles earlier this month, was also competing.
