Blizard Australia’s best in Scotland

Rohan Blizard was the best of the Aussie contingent at the Scottish Amateur Stroke Play Championship, finishing in a share of eighth place after firing rounds of 73, 76 and 69. Compatriot Scott Arnold was just two strokes back but may be lamenting a final round 80 which saw him slip out of title contention. Jonathan Welsh finished in a share of 32nd spot, Matthew Gleeson in 35th while fellow Aussie Tim Stewart also had an 80 on the final day as he slipped to a share of 42nd spot. Wallace Booth of Scotland was the only player under par for the tournament, coasting to a four shot victory from Edouard Dubios of France who recently contested the Srixon Australian Amateur Championship in Adelaide. Mark Halliday of Royal Aberdeen and Matthew Cryer from Coventry were equal third at four-over the card. Next on the agenda for the Australians is the St Andrews Links trophy commencing on June 6.
