Golf news in brief: Ross Cameron fades away as Chris Hanson wins play-off

ROSS Cameron's glory run in this week's PGA EuroPro Tour event at Ballymena, Northern Ireland, ended disappointingly for the Aberdeenshire man.

After starting the Galgorm Castle Northern Ireland Open with a brilliant round of nine-under-par 63 and leading by two strokes with one round to go, the McDonald Ellon tour pro slumped to a closing round of three-over-par 75 to finish joint seventh on seven-under-par 209.

Cameron, in his second year on the EuroPro Tour, still achieved his highest finish so far and earned 781, but the 10,000 jackpot prize had been his for the taking. Instead it went to Chris Hanson (Woodsome Hall) who beat Graeme Clark (Doncaster) in a play-off after they had tied on 14-under-par 202.
