Craig is edged out

Rutherglen Reformer - - House & Home -

Cam­bus­lang man Craig Ross was among the Scot­tish golfers who strug­gled in the match play stages at the Bri­tish Am­a­teur Cham­pi­onship.

The Kirkhill mem­ber carded an ea­gle and 10 birdies over two days to edge into the sec­ond round but that is where his stay in the com­pe­ti­tion ended.

Craig, 24, lost by one hole to Daniel O’Lough­lin of Eng­land in a dis­ap­point­ing tour­na­ment for Scot­tish golfers at Royal St Ge­orge’s, Kent.

Robert Mac­In­tyre and Ryan Lums­den were the last Scots left in the mix but ex­ited in the fourth round.

Eng­land’s Harry El­lis se­cured a place at next month’s Open after win­ning the 122nd Am­a­teur Cham­pi­onship in dra­matic fash­ion by beat­ing Dy­lan Perry.

The 21-year-old de­feated the Aus­tralian on the sec­ond hole in a sud­den death play-off.
