NOTABLE: Won the impressive Scottish Amateur Championship at Royla Dornoch this past summer. He secured his third national title with a strong 9&7 triumph in the 36-hole final against Richard Docherty in the 85th staging of the Scottish Amateur Championship. It was the biggest win in the final since Colin Montomerie's victory at Nairin 25 years ago. After a superb six days on the glorious Dornoch Firth, Forrest came out on top from a starting field of 256, representing more than 130 clubs, and triumphed over eight matches spanning nine rounds. Following his success in the Scottish Under-16s in 2009 and the Scottish Boys a year later, he has achieved a notable hat-trick.
