Scott in at death to bag Euro Tour Card

Rutherglen Reformer - - The Back Page - Mur­ray Spooner

Cathkin Braes golfer Scott Jamieson held on to his Euro­pean Tour Card af­ter a nerve-rack­ing four days in Por­tu­gal.

The Scot fin­ished 108th in the Race to Dubai af­ter the last reg­u­lar event of the sea­son in the Al­garve.

He held on to his play­ing rights by just over £7,000 af­ter end­ing with a score of 70 for a share of 50th place at 10 un­der.

It was the sec­ond year in a row the Scot had left it late to se­cure his card, hav­ing ended up 106th on the money-list 12 months ago.

He can now look for­ward to a sev­enth suc­ces­sive sea­son on the cir­cuit but is de­ter­mined not to be in the same po­si­tion again in a year’s time.

The 32 year-old said: “It was a bit of a strug­gle the first half of the sea­son, but since the Czech Masters [in Au­gust], I’ve started to play a lot bet­ter.

“It’s nice to sneak over the line just at the end, but it’s not where I want to be.

“At the end of the year I want to be more at the top end of things and not hav­ing to have sleep­less nights. There’s go­ing to be a lot of guys that just miss out – some of them good friends.

“I feel for them.”

Card for keeps Scott Jamieson
