Scott Henry shot a final round of seven-under-par 65 to finished joint fourth in the Peugeot Tour de Lerma tournament in Spain at the weekend.
The former Scottish boys' champion and men's stroke-play champion, pictured, had a remarkable start and finish to his final round.
He had an eagle 3 at the 611yd opening hole and an eagle 2 at the 18th hole (334yd) which he probably drove. He had five birdies (fourth, seventh, 11th, 13th and 14th), and two bogeys, third and short 15th.
The Cardross man's earlier rounds were 70 and 68. His final total was 13-under-par 203.
But the standard of scoring on the Peugeot/Alps Tour is very high and Henry finished five shots behind the winner, Spain's Santiago Luna who scored 68, 64 and 66 for 18-under-par 198 and a two shot win from compatriots Jorge San Sebastian, who had a final round of 63, and Eduardo de la Riva who closed with a 65.
It was the 48-year-old Luna's first win anywhere for five years.
Ulsterman Gareth Shaw tied for 11th place on 206 with rounds of 70, 70 and 66.
Irishman Brendan McCarroll finished joint 20th on 208 with scores of 75, 65 and 68. Also on 208 was Englishman Jordan Gibb (70-69-69).
Englishman Darren Wright finished joint 31st with scores of 73, 66 and 71 for 210.
Scott Henry maintains fourth place on the Alps Tour Order of Merit with winnings of 19,995 Euros. First is England's Chris Paisley (28,208), 2nd, another Englishman, Jason Barnes (27,230) and third Italian Marco Crespi (24,189).
If he can stay in the top six at the end of the two concluding tournaments on the 2011 Alps Tour, Henry will automatically gain a place on next year's Challenge Tour.
Scott has been able to skip Stage 1 and gone straight through to Stage 2 of the European Tour Q School at four venues in Spain in early December through his high Order of Merit standing on the Alps Tour.
He won an event, the Gosser Open, in May.
