Player Notes

Chillas turned professional in 1971 after representing Scotland at Boys level and has since developed into one of the Tartan Tour's most successful players. He represented Great Britain and Ireland in five PGA Cup Matches between 1982 and 1992 and in 2001 achieved arguably his most impressive feat to date, winning the Scottish Professional Championship for a second time, 25 years after he had won it for a first time in 1976. John is renowned as one of his country's finest coaches, working both with individuals and with the hugely successful Stirling University golf team. He spent several years as club professional at Stirling before switching to Glenbervie Golf Club near Larbert a decade ago.
