Rankin sneaks into EuroPro Tour finale

FORMER Walker Cup player Graham Rankin covered the last eight holes in one under par to beat the cut with nothing to spare after two rounds of this week's PGA EuroPro Tour event, the Dawson and Sanderson Classic, at Longhirst Hall Golf Club in Northumberland.

Rankin's chances of winning the 10,000 first prize are remote – he is 11 shots behind leader Nick McCarthy.

Two other Scots, Mark Rae and David Rodger, made it through to the final day.
