Peter Kerr invited to the Boyd Quaich Tournament

This summer Peter Kerr was invited to the Boyd Quaich Tournament.  This tournament is the oldest and one of the most prestigious, invitational golf tournaments in the world for student golfers.  It was set up in 1946 to commemorate the 2 Boyd brothers who were both students at St Andrews and were killed in the Second World War.  120 of the top university golfers from around the world compete each year over 72 holes played off the championship tees on the Old and New courses.  There were players from Australia, South Africa, US, Canada and from across Europe.  Peter was the only school boy playing and was invited because he is due to start St Andrews in September.  It was a real honour for Peter to be invited on to the tee as “Peter Kerr, The Royal Belfast Academical Institution.”  He eventually finished in 24th position after a closing level par round on the Old Course.
