Stuart Archibald claims top-20 finish on EuroPro Tour
STUART Archibald’s fortunes seem to be taking a turn for the better, the Basingstoke golfer following up a share of sixth place at the Golf Gladiators event by finishing in a tie for 12th at a EuroPro Tour event in Ireland.
The 28-year-old from Worting travelled to Concra Wood Golf and Country Club, in County Monaghan, for the event, having failed to survive the cut at any of his previous EuroPro outings this season.
He got off to a great start, making birdie at the first hole, and while he was two-over-par at the turn, three birdies on the back nine saw Archibald card an opening round of 72 (par).
An eagle three at the par-five 15th helped Archibald to a one-under-par round of 71 on day two and, while he was unable to mount a final round charge, a score of 73 (+1) left him level par for the tournament and tied for 12th, earning him £600.
The result means that Archibald is now 91st in the EuroPro order of merit ahead of his next tournament, the MarHall.com Scottish Classic, which gets under way at Earl of Mar, in Scotland, on Wednesday.
