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.
