Busby 5/4 to clinch Fairmont St Andrews title

October 8th, 2009

James Busby is a 5/4 favourite with Sky Bet to win The PartyPoker.com International Open at Fairmont St Andrews, holding a one shot lead going into the final round of the last event of the 2009 PGA EuroPro Tour season before the Tour Championship.

Busby (The Shropshire) followed his opening round of 66 with a faultless 67 to go into Friday’s finale at nine under par. Second place in the Order of Merit belongs to Tom Haylock (Ground Construction Ltd) and he will be gunning to overturn the one stroke deficit after his second round of 68 of the tournament – he is a 9/4 shot to win the event and take over from absent money list leader Scott Jamieson.

Scottish duo Lloyd Saltman (Aegon) and Wallace Booth are two strokes behind at seven under par, with Booth carding a six under par 66 in the second round and it’s 9/2 the pair for the win.

Sitting five shots off the lead are Craig Lee and Nicky Harris (Whitefield GC) and they are 50/1 while Ryder Cup hero Ronan Rafferty is three under par and 66/1 to win. He is joined on three under by Jack Doherty (North Gailes – 66/1), Michael Collins (Mallow Golf Range – 100/1) and Nick McCarthy (Moortown – 100/1).

The final round begins at 8.30am on Friday morning, with live scoring available at via the Score Updates link on the homepage.
