In windswept conditions at the East Lothian venue, Mukherjee once again showed his class, having become the youngest-ever Scottish Amateur champion earlier in the year.

He carded a five-under-par 66 to get his hands on the Scratch Trophy as he claimed a five-shot success over Dominic McGlinchey from The Renaissance Club.

In a tighter contest, Williamson won the Handicap Trophy with a net 70, pipping Liam Davidson from Turnhouse by a shot.

Three players - Ethan Robertson (Prestonfield), Fraser Walters (Gullane) and Hayden Fowler (Bathgate) - all finished on 74.

“The course was in fantastic condition, but the wind made it a very stiff test,” said foundation manager Scott Knowles. “Despite this, there was still some excellent scoring.”
