Marc’s pay day’s perfect timing
Marc Warren’s love affair with the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship continued as he recorded his third top-five finish in the event with a closing 66 on Sunday.
The Rutherglen-born golfer, who saved his European Tour card by finishing fifth last year, has enjoyed a recent upsurge in form, earning £240,000 in the past fortnight with a runner-up finish in the Portugal Masters followed by last week’s tied 15th placing in the British Masters.
A bogey-free round of 66 for a 14-under total ensured Warren pocketed another six-figure cheque.
Warren, who stayed in Cambuslang, said:“It’s another positive week and I really love this event. It was nice to play with slightly less pressure this year than normal.
“The event has been kind to me. I love links golf and the Old Course is my favourite course anywhere in the world.
Warren added:“There’s still a lot to play for this season.
“It’s a good time of year to be hitting some form.”
The 36-year-old did not have too much time to celebrate his win however.
Instead, he dashed back to Glasgow to be with his wife Laura, who was expecting their second child.
