Peter Fowler leads Scottish Senior Open after ‘hell of an effort’ at Craigielaw

“Hell of an effort,” opined Paul Lawrie as he delivered the perfect summary of Peter Fowler’s second-day score in the Scottish Senior Open. As the wind that was rarely a factor in the men’s and ladies’ events along the road at The Renaissance Club returned with a vengeance on the East Lothian coast, the 60-year-old Australian produced a truly remarkable effort at Craigielaw.

He’s had a caman in his hands a fair bit over the past three weeks as shinty continues to give him the “balance” in life that has been a secret to his success, but now it’s time for Bob MacIntyre to get back down to business on the golf course.

“I feel like I was born for this.” In a few words, Suzann Pettersen summed up why Catriona Matthew, the European captain, has made arguably the boldest decision of her life by handing the Norwegian one of her four wildcards for next month’s Solheim Cup at Gleneagles. “Bring it on, bring it on!” said Pettersen, a renowned fearsome competitor, when asked if that decision was a gamble by the North Berwick woman.

Mi Jung Hur hails Scottish caddie after Renaissance Club title triumph

An early setback left her hot under the collar but some soothing words from her Scottish caddie helped settle Mi Jung Hur. Only four holes into the Aberdeen Standard Investments Ladies Scottish Open on Thursday, the Korean needed the calming influence of Gary Marshall. “After I made two bogeys after one birdie, I was mad and he told me on the fourth tee box, ‘come on, MJ, you can win this tournament’,” said the 29-year-old after ending up doing just that at The Renaissance Club.

It will probably require the best round of her career but, seven years after winning the Aberdeen Standard Investments Ladies Scottish Open on an invitation at Archerfield Links, Carly Booth is in with a chance of repeating the feat next door at The Renaissance Club.
