Jamieson shines in Sun City

Rutherglen Reformer - - Motoring Guide -

Cathkin Braes Golf Club mem­ber Scott Jamieson came ag­o­nis­ingly close to win­ning his sec­ond Euro­pean Tour ti­tle at the week­end af­ter he pro­duced his best dis­play for al­most five years.

The 33-year-old topped the leader­board at the Ned­bank Chal­lenge in South Africa go­ing into the fi­nal round af­ter shoot­ing a bo­gey-free 67 in the third round on Satur­day.

Jamieson was bat­tling it out with na­tive player Branden Grace in Sun City for the ti­tle, even­tu­ally fin­ish­ing just one shot be­hind the even­tual cham­pion.

It was Jamieson’s best show­ing on the Tour since he won the Nel­son Man­dela Cham­pi­onships in Dur­ban, which was re­duced to 36 holes due to bad weather, back in De­cem­ber 2012.

How­ever, he still walked away with a cheque for a cool £630,000 and qual­i­fies for this week’s end-of-sea­son World Tour Fi­nals in Dubai.

Mean­while, there was bad news for for­mer Cam­bus­lang man Marc War­ren, 36, who just missed out on the fi­nals. He fin­ished in a tie for 66th place in Sun City.
