Hayston's Stephen Gray finished in a creditable five-way tie for  third place in the PGA EuroPro Tour event at Burhill Golf Club, Surrey, thanks to a third and final round of three-under-par 69 for a one-under-par total of 215 which earned him £1,560.
Gray was joint third after a first-round 68 but dropped down the field with a second-day 78. He had five birdies and two bogeys as he climbed through the field to finish four shots behind the winner of the £10,000 first prize, Basingstoke-based Stuart Archibald who survived a double bogey 6 at the 15th to total five-under 211 and win by a shot from runner-up Graeme Clark (Doncaster) (71-67-74). Clark earned £5,000.
Scott Henry will be rueing his opening 76 because he was four under par for the last 36 holes with rounds of 69 and 71 for level par 216. He tied for eighth place. His final round included four birdies and a double bogey 6 at the seventh. Henry's payslip amounted to £775.
Ellon's Ross Cameron, joint leader with an opening 67, faded with rounds of 76 and 79 to finish joint 31st on 222. He had a nightmare outward half in his final round with an 8 at the par-5 second and a 10 at the par-5 fifth in amassing 44 shots to the turn. He did stop the rot with 35 for the second nine but a £275 pay-out was a disappointing return after such a bright start to the tournament. 
Duncan Stewart (Grantown on Spey) finished joint 47th with rounds of 75, 69 and 80 for 224. Stewart's final round included an eagle 3 at the 13th but also double bogeys at the seventh, short eighth and 14th. Duncan earned £210.
