It was the Outer Hebrides and not out-of-bounds for top Scottish golfer Ewen Mackenzie Ferguson when he played Stornoway Golf Course today (Wednesday April 13).
 
The 25-year-old reminisced that he had not played the course since he was four!
 
And he was on hand to give tips to some of the club's budding young players, hoping to follow in his footsteps.
 
Ewen, with brother Lewis caddying, were on the Isle of Lewis visiting family.
 
In March, in only his 37th start, Ewen claimed his first European Tour victory at the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters.
 
His win makes him the first British winner of the DP World Tour era.
 
Ewen dedicated his title to his mum - who is from Lewis -  after finishing with a flourish to win the Qatar Masters on Mother’s Day.
 
During his amateur career, Ewen won the Boys Amateur Championship in 2013, and is the only player to hold the British Boys title and both the Scottish Boys Matchplay and Strokeplay titles simultaneously.
 
He was a member of the 2015 Walker Cup Great Britain and Ireland team. In August 2016, he reached the quarter-finals of The Amateur Championship.
 
After turning professional in August 2016, three years later he had a best finish on the European Tour of third place in the Belgian Knockout.
 
Returning to the Challenge Tour in 2021 he was a runner-up three times and had three other top-10 finishes, he finished 8th in the Road to Mallorca Challenge Tour rankings, securing his full European Tour card for the first time.
 
John Gillies on behalf of Stornoway Golf Club welcomed Ewen to the club and said his visit would prove an "inspiration" to the club's young players to develop their own game.
