The event concluded on Friday and Scotland’s national Sunday newspaper devoted the centre spread of its highly regarded sport supplement to a report on the tournament.
Headlined, Honey, I shrunk the Open, the in-depth report focuse in particular on the skills of players in the younger categories – including eight-year-old boys champion Charlie Daughtrey, American Mychael O’Berry who competed in the girls’ nine-year-old section and the youngest player in the tournament, five-year-old William Hill.

Forsyth’s article also makes it clear the quality of the golf on display was outstanding.
