Rutherglen Reformer - - The Back Page - Mur­ray Spooner

Burn­side golfer Lewis Irvine was left wait­ing to find out if he had made the cut for to­day’s match play after pos­i­tive out­ings in the Gents Scot­tish Am­a­teur Cham­pi­onships.

The 17-year-old from Ruther­glen had a dif­fi­cult start to the 36-hole stroke play event at Prest­wick and Prest­wick St Cuth­bert on Mon­day fin­ish­ing on +2.

But the young­ster, who was among the four Kirkhill Golf Club mem­bers to com­pete in qual­i­fy­ing, hit three birdies be­fore bo­gey­ing four holes on the back nine . He ended over­all on +3 with other play­ers yet to fin­ish.

Craig Ross was joint 34th at+ 1 on Mon­day and was al­ready three­quar­ters of the way round the St Cuth­bert course yes­ter­day be­fore the Re­former went to print.

Kirkhill golfer Alan Brown fin­ished on +8 yes­ter­day while Fraser Kane scored +15. G. Brown (par) and David McLaren (+1), of Cathkin Braes Golf Club, were also in con­tention for to­day’s match play .
