In response to your request for notification of Scots golfers at US colleges, I thought you may like to be aware of my son Matt Dalrymple.
Matt, pictured left, is from Lochwinnoch, a member at Old Course Ranfurly Golf Club, Bridge of Weir.
Matt is now a freshman, majoring in Business Administration at King University, Bristol, Tennessee who play in the Conference Carolinas.Matt has played the two events so far for the Bristol Tornados: two weeks ago shooting level par 72, 72 round the Osprey Point course on Kiawah Island to finish T13 out of 90 in the Kiawah Island         Invitational and last week he shot 73 and 77 to finish T15 in the Etowah Intercollegiate event in North Carolina.

Alice Hewson in action for Clemson
Clemson Finishes Third at Schooner Fall Classic
Clemson, South Carolina .—Alice Hewson set a Clemson scoring record for 54 holes and led Clemson to a third-place team finish at the Schooner Fall Classic .  
The two-day tournament concluded on Sunday afternoon at the par 71 Belmar Country Club in Norman, Oklahome.  It was the first tournament for new Clemson coach Kelley Hester.
GB and I Curtis Cup player Hewson from Berkhamsted, England shot a four-under-par 67 on Sunday to finish with a 54-hole score of 203, 10-under-par.  
Her performance broke the Clemson record for total score and score vs. par that had been established by Ashlan Ramsey at the 2013 Ruth’s Chris Intercollegiate in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.  Ramsey had shot a nine under par 207 at that event on a par 72 course to set the marks for total score and score versus par.
Hewson, a sophomore student, finished second to  Morgane Metraux of Florida State, who finished with a 12-under-par score of 201.  Hewson had scores of 66-70-67. 
Alice's 66 in the first round was the second best 18-hole score in Clemson University women's golf history.  The only score better is her 65 last year at the Cougar Classic in Charleston.
"The course played like a totally different layout today with different winds," said Hester.   "The girls adjusted well. We beat some good team and we are off to a great start.  Alice Hewson was very solid and played well down the stretch.  She gave herself a chance to win."
Florida State won the team competition with an 829 score, 23-under-par.  Alabama, ranked No. 1 in the nation by Golfweek, finished second at 841.  Clemson was third at  849, three shots ahead of host school Oklahoma.  Kent State, ranked fourth in the nation by Golfweek, finished fifth at 858.
Clemson had a team score of one-under-par 283 on Sunday.
