David Gourlay Jr

Ranked #4

David Gourlay

David Gourlay has probably the finest bowls pedigree on the World Bowls Tour, with parents David and Sarah both Commonwealth Games champions, in 1982 and 1994, respectively.

Mother Sarah also won the 1992 World Ladies Indoor Singles title, an achievement David matched by winning the World Indoor Singles title in 1996. Despite being a regular near the top of the Tour Rankings over the last 20 years, he hasn't added a second World Singles title.

Recognised by his contemporaries as one of the most technically gifted players in the sport, singles victories at the Scottish International Open (2017) and International Open (2018) have re-affirmed his position as a highly dangerous opponent.
