Trio share Glencruitten 36-holer


Ian McNab (Dundonald Links), playing in his first PGA in Scotland tournament, earned £1,600 for finishing joint first on 122, along with Stephen Gray (Hayston) and Robert Arnott (Bishopbriggs) in the £15,000 Glencruitten Golf Club 36-hole pro-am at Oban.

McNab followed up an opening 64 over the sporting par-62 course, which measures less than 5,000yd, with a four-under 58.

He was out in 30 and home in 28 with birdies at the first, eighth, 14th, 15th and 16th. He had one bogey, at the short seventh

Gray shot 60-62 with his second-round card featuring an outward half of 29 while Arnott scored 61-61, with six successive threes in an outward 28 in the second round, to make it a three-way tie on two-under-par.

The trio finished a shot ahead of joint third placed James McGhee (unattached) and Jason McCreadie (Buchanan Castle), both of whom returned scores of 61-62 for 123 to earn £1,100 each.

Heather MacRae (Gleneagles Hotel), the only female pro in the field, did well to finish joint ninth on 127, considering she ran up a nine at the par-4 12th in her second round 63. 

She earned £362 for that and another £120 in the pro-am team event where her China Restaurant team totalled 14-under-par 48 - but lost first place on a countback to the D and K Lafferty team led by Fraser Mann (Musselburgh).
