An A to Z of Team Taylor
Born in 1985 in Irvine, Ayrshire, Stewart took up bowls because of his father and grandparents. He plays with an Ace size 4 Indoor and an Ace size 3 outdoor both with the Pro-grip.
His funniest moment in bowling was when he did his first ever television interview which took five attempts because they couldn't understand him!!
At World Indoor Championships Stewart appears with some wonderful baking from his Dad who is a master baker, keeping all the players and officials in a happy mood!
2016 - Won World Indoor Men's Pairs (along with Darren Burnett).
2015 - Atlantic Rim, Cyprus - Triples, gold, Silver in the singles and fours.
Stewart won the World Indoor Singles Champion in 2013... taking the title just a few years after bursting onto the WBT scene as a qualifier and just two years after finishing as runner up to Greg Harlow in his first ever appearance at the world indoor champioships at Potters. Stewart turned in a blistering performance to go one better and deny Paul Foster a record equalling fifth singles title at the Hopton on Sea venue. In an utterly amazing display of superb accuracy from both players, Stewart's precision drawing earned him his first world title on the World Bowls Tours. He had displayed uncanny form throughout the event, beating Team Taylor player David Gourlay in the semi-finals before going on to enthrall the capacity audience and viewers around the globe with a cool, calm and inspirations display to lift the coveted title.
Stewart is another example of "poacher turned gamekeeper" having built up a commanding reputation in Ayrshire and Scottish circles he briefly changed residence and moved to Pontypool to be with Welsh international bowler Kerry Packwood as they awaited the arrival of their daughter Emma Jayne. Indoors he is a member of the small but highly successful Auchinleck club near Cumnock in Ayrshire, and quickly asserted his skills on the national front and took his first world singles title in the junior event against fellow Scot Ronnie Duncan in 2008, narrowly failing to add the principal crown the following year when he lost out to West Lothian's Neil Speirs in the final. He won the British title in 2008 and also the principal title the following year and then really made his mark on the professional scene at the Scottish Open at Perth in 2009 where he lost in a thrilling semi-final to Paul Foster who then went on to win the title and then the following year went down in the final to Mervyn King. Little did he know at that time that a few months later he would be strutting his stuff again, this time as the first qualifier to make it all the way to the WBT singles final at Potters, which he lost to City of Ely's Greg Harlow.
Stewart too is a model of consistency and won national, international and British titles for Wales and has also represented them at the Home Internatinal Series, however he is now back living in Ayrshire and representing the country of his birth. At just 26 year old Stewart carved an amazing path on the WBT Tour as one of the players who gain automatic entry in all events, and in the short space of four years jumped from 78th position to number 12. Stewart is also an accomplished outdoor player, having won the Scottish and British Fours title along with his Glaisnock Valley team mates.
Currently Stewart is in the Elite Squad Outdoor.
