Sandy Scott outscores Texas Tech players who were included in team - and he wasn't!

Sandy Scott from Nairn, a freshman student at Texas Tech, was not considered ready to play in the college team of five at the recent The Prestige at PGA West USA college tournament at La Quinta, California.
But they took Sandy along to gain experience and he played in the tournament as an individual.
And, "Great Scott," Sandy, pictured, outscored all the Texas Tech team members and finished tied third in a field of 78 players, by far his best performance of his first year in America.
Even the Texas Tech website said it was an "impressive performance" by young Scott.
He scored 72, 67 and 70 for a seven-under-par total of 209, five strokes behind the individual winner, Jared Du Toit (Arizona State) who had scores of 67, 67 and 70 for a nine-under 204 and a four-stroke victory.
Stirling University students played in this tournament and their best performer was Chris Maclean who finished T30 on 219 with steady scores of 73, 72 and 74.
Alasdair McDougall finished T49 on 224 with rounds of 79, 71 and 74. Also on the 224 mark was team-mate Laird Shepherd with scores of 78, 73 and 73.
And another Stirling student, James Wilson, finished 77th with scores of 79, 76 and 81 for 236.
The Texas Tech team which did not include Sandy Scott finished joint fourth on 861 alongside Stanford in the team event contested by 13 squads. Louisiana State University (852) won from Pepperdine (856) with Oklahoma third on 858.
If Sandy's scores had counted, Texas Tech might have finished second or third!
Young Scott is certainly seeing the United States in his first year over there. From California for "The Prestige," Sandy should next be in action at Las Vegas, Nevada next week.
Wonder if he will be "promoted" to the Texas Tech team of five?
