Solheim Cup Captain Catriona Matthew has partnered with Scottish Golf to mentor Scotland's top young golfers.

The Major winner will join fellow Scottish golfer and Open winner Paul Lawrie in helping to shape the country's next generation of golf champions.

Scottish Golf, the governing body for amateur golf in Scotland, said Paul and Catriona will "contribute to a broad review into the structure of Scottish Golf’s performance programmes and player pathway" this winter.

Karin Sharp, Chief Operating Officer at Scottish Golf said: “It is very exciting to have Catriona and Paul on board and we are very much looking forward to working with them in a number of different capacities in the coming weeks and months.

"I can’t think of anyone more appropriate to help us further develop our performance programmes than two of Scotland’s most successful golfers. I have no doubt that the expertise and experience Catriona and Paul will bring to the table will be enormously valuable."

As one of the most celebrated female golfers of all time, Catriona's many achievements include winning the 2009 Ricoh Women's British Open just 11 weeks after giving birth to her second daughter, and leading Team Europe to victory during the 2019 Solheim Cup Gleneagles.

The 51-year-old Catriona said: “I can’t wait to get started in this role and I’m incredibly excited about the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead. The game has given me so much over the years and I hope that by sharing my experience, and mentoring the next generation, I can give something back.

“I look forward to contributing to the review in any way that I can. There is a wealth of potential golf talent in Scotland and anything we can do to help identify and nurture that talent will hopefully help more Scottish golfers find success at the elite level.”

We can't think of anyone better to advise and inspire young golfers.
