. St Andrews' George Burns first home winner 

of  Boyd Quaich since 2009

 The St Andrews-based Boyd Quaich Memorial Tournament has been won by a local student - George Burns - for the first time since 2009.

Stuart Easton (Western Kentucky) finished with a three under par 69 which included a great birdie on the Old Course's notorious Road Hole 17th to challenge and draw level with overnight leader George Burns. 
However it was Burns, from the University of St Andrews, who finished a mixed round with a birdie 3 at the last to win by one shot from Easton on seven-under-par 279.

George Williams (Central Florida) finished third on 282 - a shot ahead of Banchory's Jack Harling (Highlands and Islands) and Hunter O'Mahony.
Harling closed with a 69 and O'Mahony a 68 in joint fourth position
Alasdair McDougall (Mercer University, USA) finished sixth on his own with four steady rounds and a total of 284.

Sunny conditions at St Andrews allowed for some good scores, although a stiff breeze kept the players on their toes.

James Glen (Durham University) and Christopher Low (Abertay) also shot 68s but were too far behind at the start of the final day  to challenge the leaders.
