John hits amateur course record in Gullane

A superb amateur course record 63 in the third round helped young Australian Cameron John to a stunning four-shot victory in the Carrick Neill Scottish Open Stroke Play Championship at Gullane.

 

Playing in beautiful conditions, the VIS scholarship holder held off a strong Scottish challenge from Grant Forrest and Craig Howie and fast finishing Irishman Stuart Grehan to take the biggest title of his career, finishing with a final round 68 to post a 15-under par aggregate of 269.

 

John, the reigning Victorian Amateur champion, made his move with a flawless eight-birdie haul to move into a two-shot lead ahead of overnight leader Forrest, and held his nerve despite late bogeys on 14 and 15.
