Stuart Archibald unable to end EuroPro Tour season with a win
BASINGSTOKE golfer Stuart Archibald finished in a tie for 46th place at The WPT Championship, his final EuroPro Tour event of the season.
The Worting man shot rounds of 72 (par), 71 (-1) and 74 (+2) at The Oxfordshire to end the tournament on +1, 12 shots behind the eventual winner after surviving the cut for a fifth consecutive event.
The result leaves him 47th on the EuroPro Tour order of merit but he will not play in the final three events of the year as he prepared to travel to the Middle East to play events on the Mena Golf Tour.
Archibald is down to play at least seven events on the tour, which takes in courses in the United Arab Emirates, Oman, Qatar and Saudi Arabia. His first event will be the Dubai Creek Open, which gets under way on September 26, with a place in the Omega Dubai Desert Classic the prize for the top three on the order of merit.
