Joshua Jamieson in line-up for Wales clash

JOSHUA Jamieson has been rewarded for his victory in last week's Scottish Boys Stroke Play Championship with a place in the Scotland side for the forthcoming Boys' Home Internationals in Wales (2-4 August).

The 17-year-old, who posted a five-under par aggregate of 283 at Nairn Dunbar to take the boys' title by three shots, is one of two St Andrews golfers in the team, with Ewan Scott also included.

Four other members of the team who finished second behind Ireland 12 months ago - Grant Forrest, Liam Johnston, Jack McDonald and Daniel Hendry - retain their places, hoping to build on a positive performance when they defeated England for the first time in 13 years.
