Hot stuff from Currie
- Leads Deer Park Masters with a
six-under 66

Caldwell Golf Club pro Chris Currie stormed to the top of the leaderboard on the first day of the Deer Park Masters with an impressive six-under-par 66 giving him a one shot advantage heading into day two at the Livingston venue.

Currie made the most of his early start and quickly posted a target for others to chase with Bishopbriggs’ Robert Arnott, Grantown-on-Spey’s Gavin Hay and Braid Hills’ Paul McKechnie the only ones to come close, sitting one shot back at the halfway point in the event.

Reigning champion Greig Hutcheon, meanwhile, finds himself in a tie for fifth place after heading straight to Deer Park from a meet up with the Great Britain and Ireland PGA Cup team in Surrey at the weekend. His two-under-par round of 70 leaves him with work to do on day two to catch Currie and keep his hopes of a fifth consecutive Deer Park Masters title alive.
The Deer Park Masters continues tomorrow (Wednesday 2nd August) as all 50 PGA professionals return to the acclaimed West Lothian layout for their second round with a further 150 amateurs taking part in the biggest pro-am event on the Tartan Tour circuit.
