Hark, Herald has a good day but Hume, Rankin toil

Mearns Castle’s Scott Herald had a good day to share the lead with a one-under-par 70 in this week’s PGA EuroPro Tour event, the Dawson & Sanderson Classic, at Longhirst Hall Golf Club, Northumberland.
But it was a bad one for two former Scottish amateur champions Graham Rankin (1998) and Barry Hume (2001).
Haggs Castle’s Hume (pictured) marked up a seven-over-par 78 to be joint 61st His card include a triple bogey 7 at the long 17th and a double bogey 5 at the short sixth. Also checking in with an 78 was Zack Saltman with an inward half of 40 including a double bogey at the 11th.
Drumpellier’s Rankin stumbled his way to an 80 with an inward half of 43 including a triple bogey 7 at the 13th and a double bogey 7 at the long 18th. He had not a single birdie.
Herald, in contrast, had birdies at the first, the long third, the 13th and long 16th in halves of 36 and 34. He also had a double bogey 7 at the ninth and dropped a shot at the second.
Sharing the top spot with him on 70 are Nick McCarthy (Moortown) ad Chris roake (Buckinghamshire).
