Dr Malcolm Taylor from the School of Life Sciences is this year’s winner of the University’s Dow Putter golf competition – having also won the competition in 2017.

This year he battled it out with Calum Fraser from External Relations over 35 holes eventually securing a 3&1 victory at Brechin Golf Club.

The Dow Putter is a match play knockout competition, played during the spring and summer each year, and is open to staff and associate staff of the University of Dundee. It is a great opportunity to meet new golfers and experience the diversity of courses around the region.

The putter was made in 1880 in Tom Morris’ workshop in St Andrews and donated to the University in 1967 by Professor Dow, Cox Professor of Anatomy.

If you are interested in taking part next year please contact Graeme Findlay – g.r.w.findlay@dundee.ac.uk . The 2019 competition will tee off in early April.
