The GGU is pleased to confirm Fraser Grant of Ralston Golf Club is this year's winner of the Order of Merit. Fraser played in 6 out of 9 events scoring a total of 695 points, winning both the McKinnon Wood Trophy in May, and then the GGU Matchplay title in July.
Vic Skelton, GGU Championship Convenor spoke to Fraser about his success -
"One of my main goals this year was to win the GGU Order of Merit so I am absolutely delighted to have done so - winning 2 of the events certainly helps. An order of merit win usually means you’ve had a consistently good season. I felt great at the start of the season and was looking forward to getting started with competitive golf again following an almost empty 2020 calendar. A win at the McKinnon Wood was a great way to start the season at Cawder - an event that I’ve been trying to win for a few years now.
The highlight of my year would have to be the GGU Matchplay Championship which (fortunately for me) was played over my home course at Ralston. To have some friends and family there to support and celebrate made it even more special. Overall, this is one of my best seasons in recent years having also managed to win Ralston’s Club Championship and Ralston’s Strokeplay Championship so for 2022, anything close to the success of 2021 and I’ll be happy.”
Congratulations to Fraser on a great season and on winning this prestigous title.
