Grant Forrest

 

Grant has been a prolific winner throughout his amateur career, having claimed three national titles as well as the prestigious St Andews Links Trophy.

His first notable success came in the 2009 Scottish Boys Under-16 Championship at Largs, with Ayrshire proving a happy hunting ground once again when he added the Scottish Boys Championship at West Kilbride the following year.

The Craigielaw player then completed his hat-trick of national crowns by winning the Scottish Amateur Championship at Royal Dornoch, where he recorded a thumping 9&7 victory in the final.

Grant’s other big success on the domestic scene came at the ‘Home of Golf’ in 2014, when he beat fellow Scot Bradley Neil in a play-off on the Old Course to win the St Andrews Links Trophy.

He also chalked up four individual triumphs on the US college circuit during a spell at the University of San Diego, where he was recruited by Tim Mickelson, Phil’s brother. One of those wins came at Chambers Bay, where he shot a career-best 63 on the course that staged the 2015 US Open won by Jordan Spieth.

Around the same time that event was being held, Grant reached the final of the Amateur Championship at Carnoustie, losing to Frenchman Romain Langasque in the title showdown.

Grant has also enjoyed some sweet team triumphs, notably on a European side led by Andrew Coltart in the 2014 Palmer Cup at Walton Heath and, last year, in both Scotland’s title-winning side in the European Team Championship in Sweden and the Walker Cup for Great Britain & Ireland at Royal Lytham.

Another highlight in Grant’s career was playing in the 2013 Open Championship at Muirfield, close to his home in North Berwick.

Grant turned professional in October 2016 making his debut at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship where he finished in a very impressive tie for 41st place.
