SCOTLAND’S first ever FootGolf Champions League Final is taking place today – and the game is being broadcast live.

The country’s number one ranked player, Gavin Craig, is playing Scotland’s most traveled Footgolfer, David Quigley, with a cash prize up for grabs.

Gavin, 28, and David, 31, made the final after topping their groups in the sport’s Winter League, which consisted of two leagues of nine players.

FootGolf – a mixture of football and golf – is played in than 30 countries and there are currently eight official courses in Scotland.

Hilton Park will be open for business very soon and this is the short 13th par 3 round the wall!

The game is played using a full-size football and, just like golf, players have to complete an 18-hole course, with football-sized holes, taking the least number of shots.

Gavin, of Prestwick, Ayrshire, won every game in the Caledonian League, while David, of Motherwell, Lanarkshire, drew two and won the rest of his Tartan League fixtures.

They face off at 2pm today at the 18-hole course at Palacerigg Golf Centre in Cumbernauld.

The match is being broadcast live on the FootGolf Scotland Facebook page.
