Six players from Hawick Golf Club are set to tee up in this weekend’s Border Matchplay Championship at The Roxburghe.

Alan Ballantyne, Graeme Tinlin, Paul Johnson, Greg Easton, Greg Baillie and Alan Trimby will compete in the 16-man knockout finals after qualifying through the Border Strokeplay Championship at Torwoodlee in August.

Tomorrow morning’s first round sees two all-Hawick ties as Graeme Tinlin takes on Greg Easton and Paul Johnson faces Greg Baillie.

Winners from the morning session will go through to the last eight tomorrow afternoon, followed by the semi-finals on Sunday morning and the final in the afternoon.
