Three Welshmen flying the flag at Southerness

Alastair Jones, Matthew Moseley and Richard James have all headed to Scotland to compete in the Scottish Open Strokeplay Championship, starting today.

Radyr's former Welsh Amateur champion and Welsh Open Youths champion Jones will spearhead their challenge as he competes in his first major amateur event of the year at Southerness.

Moseley of Carmarthen, who posted Top 10 finishes at the Welsh Open Youths both last year and in 2011, will join him there. He will be playing his first event outside America this year, and will be looking to finish high up the leaderboard..

Aberystwyth golfer James completes Welsh interest. He is also competing in his first European event of the year, and will be looking to build on his showing in last year's Welsh Amateur at Harlech.

The last Scottish title was captured by Frenchman Paul Barjon, who isn't defending this weekend. This time, 10 nations see their stars battle for the prize at the Solway Firth links, including the Welsh.

They will be looking to add their names to a star-studded winners’ list, which includes former Ryder Cup captains Bernard Gallacher and Colin Montgomerie, while European Tour pros Dean Robertson, Stephen Gallacher and Andrew Coltart, among others, have also walked away with the trophy.

The winner being crowned on Sunday.
