Play Reduced to 36 holes in Eagle Orchid Scottish Masters

April 30th, 2014

MontroseeagleThree players will take a one-shot clubhouse lead into the final day of the Eagle Orchid Scottish Masters, though eight groups are still to complete their first round at Montrose Links.

Heavy fog restricted play to just under three and a half hours on the opening day of the PGA EuroPro Tour event, and round one could not be completed on Wednesday either as the fog returned to delay the re-start by four hours 45 minutes.

A wet afternoon on Scotland’s east coast meant tricky conditions for players, and worsening light brought a conclusion to day two shortly before 8pm, with 24 players still to sign for their first 18.

Round one will conclude on Thursday morning at 6:30am. A cut to the leading 50 players and ties will now be made at the end of the first round, with the tournament reduced to 36 holes. The final round will begin once the first 18 has been completed.

Jason Timmis (Wychwood Park Golf Club), Elliot Saltman (Archerfield Links Golf Club) and Steve Uzzell (Hornsea Golf Club) lead by one on -3 in the clubhouse, with three players at two under and three more at one under. The best score yet to complete the first round is Scott Fallon’s level par, through 12.

The winner will take home £10,000 from a total prize fund of £40,000. Tomorrow’s final round will be filmed for a two-hour highlights show to be broadcast on Sky Sports on Tuesday, May 13 at 8pm, with repeats the following day.
