It’s been a few months for St Johnstone manager Callum Davidson with a remarkable cup double and a fifth place in the Scottish Premiership in his first season as manager.
But now the former Scotland defender has found even more success as the new course record holder at Dunblane New Golf Club.
Playing at zero, the 44-year-old posted a score of 62 to seven under par in the club championship qualifying round to beat the previous mark of 2011 PGA Scottish champion Alan Lockhart with a shot.
His turn, which included six birdies and an eagle, followed an opening of 70 to give him a four stroke lead.
“My uncle Alec Wilson held the record for years with a 64 and I always wanted to beat it,” Davidson said. “The closest I had come was a 65.
“I haven’t played much golf this year, but did manage to break the record in the windy conditions. I actually did a bogey 15, the easiest hole on the course.
“It’s the high point of 2021 for me … just kidding, but I’ve wanted to break the record for so long and it was probably more achievable than winning the double with St Johnstone.”
