Davison nets holiday wins

Deciding one big victory wasn’t enough, Duncan golfer Callum Davison won a pair of tournaments on the Future Collegiate World Tour over the Christmas holidays.

In short succession, the 13-year-old topped the 13-and 14-year-old division at events in Scottsdale, Arizona on Dec. 21 and 22, and La Quinta, California on Dec. 30 and 31.

Davison came from behind at Scottsdale’s 6400-yard Grayhawk Golf Club, shooting 75 – the low round for the event in his division – on Sunday to tie the leader from the first round and force a playoff. Davison then won with a par on the first playoff hole.

Moving over to two more 6400-yard courses in La Quinta, Davison shot 74 on the PGA West Nicklaus Tournament course on Saturday and 72 on the TPC Stadium course on Sunday for a two-stroke victory.

"It was a nice way to finish the year after coming in 20th in the BCGA Junior Championship and 6th in the BCGA Juvenile Championships," Davison’s dad, Robert, commented.
