Glasgow Regains "Guardian Trophy"


Guardian Trophy 1974

Ian Grier, captain of Glasgow (left), is presented with the National Guardian Trophy by Ron Coles, captain of Perth, the previous holders. 1974.

With only two holes to play in the last match in the morning games of this years Inter-City Golf Tournament for The National Guardian Trophy, played over the Royal Burgess Course at Barnton, last week, it looked odds on Edinburgh qualifying to meet Dundee in the Afternoon decider.

At this stage Edinburgh's G. R. Robertson and W. Scott were one up with two to play against J. Green and A. Kirk of Glasgow, and their side in the clubhouse leading by three matches to two. Then the unpredictableness of golf emerged. A three foot putt was missed and Green and Kirk took the chance to win the hole.

On the 252 yards 18th Green sent a magnificent drive six feet past the pin and Kirk laid the ball up dead for a bridie three which was too good for their opponents. So Glasgow were through by the margin of three holes up.

Dundee, who had disposed of the holders Perth in the morning rounds fairly comfortably, were unable to strike the same form in the afternoon games and Glasgow over whelmed them, winning the first five matches, only their heroes of the morning, Green and Kirk, failing to make it a clean sweep. This hardly worried a delighted Ian Grier, who thus emulated his brother George, captain of Glasgow when they won the trophy in 1958.

Perth beat Edinburgh in an evenly decided contest in the afternoon to win the Ballingall Spoon. The following are the detailed results:
