Scottish champion George Duncan finishes 

joint second in big Tennessee field

Scottish amateur champion George Duncan, a member of Windyhill Golf Club, Glasgow, finished joint second this week in a  field of 80 players at the State Farm Intercollegiate tournament over 54 holes at Woodlake Golf Club, Tazewell in Tennessee.

Duncan, a final-year student at Lincoln Memorial University, Harrogate in Tennessee, had rounds of 73, 70 and 69 for a four-under-par total of 212 over the par-72, 6746yd course. 
George's good effort helped Lincoln Memorial to win the team title by 16 shots.
Individually, Duncan, pictured right, who won the Scottish title at Royal Aberdeen's Balgownie links this past summer, tied with Brad Robinson (Lenoir-Rhyne) (70-71-71), both finishing two shots behind the winner, Weston Bell (Anderson University, South Carolina) who had improving scores of 71, 70 and 69 for six-under 210.
There were six other Brits in the field, five of them from Scotland.
Sam Broadhurst (Lincoln Memorial) finished T6 on 214 with scores of 77, 67 and 70. Pity about that first round.
Fintan McKenna, pictured left, from the Aberdeen suburb of Westhill and a freshman at Carson-Newman University, finished T23 on 222 with rounds of 73, 77 and 72. Pity about that second round.
Craig Stephen from Torphins, a third-year student at Brevard College, North Carolina, shot rounds of 77, 74 and 76 for 227 and a T36 finish.
Ray Gordon, from Alford, a third-year student at Lincoln Memorial, finished T58 on 234 with rounds of 73, 79 and 82.
Calum McAndrew from Fife, a third-year student at Brevard College, shot 82, 79 and 76 for 237 and a T65 finish.
Declan Addison from Peterhead, a third-year student at Brevard College, had a disappointing tournament with rounds of 89, 90 and 84 for 263 and 79th place in a field of 80 players.
Lincoln Memorial (855) won the team title ahead of Carson-Newman (871), Lenoir-Rhyne (874) and Brevard  (878) in a field of 12 teams.
