Kilmacolm’s Eilidh Briggs finished third after her round of 74, with Royal Montrose’s Gillian Paton a further shot back.

Alfred Dunhill Links
In-form Marc Warren posted a top-five finish in the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship.
At Kingsbarns, Carnoustie and The Old Course, St Andrews, the Scot continued his recent surge up the Race to Dubai rankings after another fine week’s work. Warren is now up to 56th spot in the rankings, having won over £400,000 in the last three weeks.
“Three very solid results in a row, so I’m very, very pleased,” said Warren, a three-time European Tour winner, who has built on displays in the Portugal and British Masters.
At Alfred Dunhill Links, new pro Connor Syme again shone on the European Tour, taking advantage of an invitation to tie for 15th place and add to his tie for 15th in Portugal. It’s earned the Drumoig man around £66,000, as he prepares for the Second Stage of European Tour Qualifying School next month.
“It’s a great opportunity to be playing European Tour events with no status, so I’m delighted with that,” said the 22-year-old. “You have to make the most of opportunities that come around, and I’ve done as much as I can.”
Dunfries & County’s Liam Johnston, this year’s Carrick Neill Scottish Open Stroke Play champion, also impressed on his professional debut to finish inside the top 50. Stephen Gallacher caught the eye too to tie for 12th, with David Drysdale alongside Syme in a tie for 15th.
Meantime, another rookie Scottish pro, Glencruitten’s Robert MacIntyre, started life in the paid ranks with a share of third place on the MENA Tour at Ayla GC in Jordan, slashing the course record by three shots after a closing nine-under 64.
