Top amateurs prepare to tee off at the St Andrews Links Trophy

June 06 2019

The St Andrews Links Trophy in association with Allianz returns to the Old Course with a host of world-class golfers vying for the prestigious amateur title. 

First played in 1989, the St Andrews Links Trophy has attracted some of the leading amateurs from around the world over the past 30 years, many of whom have gone on to enjoy success on the PGA and European Tours, notably Ernie Els, Lee Westwood, Trevor Immelman, Geoff Ogilvy, Padraig Harrington, Justin Rose, Rory McIlroy and Francesco Molinari.

From Friday 7 to Sunday 9 June, 144 golfers will embark on the 72 hole stroke play tournament over the Jubilee and Old Courses.

The lowest ranked player in this year’s field is Australia’s David Micheluzzi, currently 7th in the World Amateur Golf Rankings (WAGR), who arrives at the Home of Golf looking to impress after competing in a number of recent pro events, including a 5th place finish in the Australian Open.

Following his victory last year, reigning champion John Murphy will return to embark on a title defence alongside a strong Irish contingent including Australian Amateur Champion Conor Purcell and Ireland’s highest-ranking amateur Caolan Rafferty.

Joining them is a large contingent of fellow GB&I Walker Cup teammates, all of whom will be looking to impress the onlooking selectors ahead of the Match at Royal Liverpool in September.

Scotland will be well represented with African Amateur Champion Euan Walker leading the charge and even closer to home the New Club’s John Paterson and Ben Caton will be flying the flag for St Andrews.

Spectators are encouraged to visit the Links to watch in person free of charge. Further information and live scoring is available here and you can keep up to date with sights, sounds and video highlights of the tournament via our social channels:
