Ellon's Ross Cameron repeated his opening score of level par 69 on the second day of the Sueno Dunes Classic at Belek in Turkey but dropped from joint 11th to joint 18th on 138 - that's how high the standard of scoring is on the EPD (German PGA) Tour.
Cameron, started at the 10th with a bogey but cancelled that out with a birdie at the long 13th. Then he reeled off 14 straight pars to be five shots behind leader Tiago Cruz from Portugal, who has shot 67-66 for five-under 133.
Motherwell's Paul O'Hara was the only other Scot to beat the 36-hole cut. He has had rounds of 70 and 71 for three-over 141, tied 31st and one shot inside the limit mark.
The former Walker Cup reserve, starting at the 10th, covered his first nine in two-under 33 with birdies at the 11th, 15th and 18th and only one shot dropped, at the short 17th. O'Hara looked set for a sub-par score when he got his fourth birdie at the third but then he inexplicably dropped four shots to par over his last six holes with bogeys at the short fourth, fifth, sixth and ninth.
Jordan Findlay (Fraserburgh) missed the cut in his debut in Turkey while Aberdeen's David Law missed it for his second tournament in a row
Findlay had a 72 for 149 after a double bogey at the 10th, his fifth double bogey of the tournament. In the first round he had an astonishing bag of five birdies but today he birdied only the 16th.
Northern Open champion Law had no birdies in a disappointing 77 for 156, an astronomical score for a young man of his capablities.
Started at the 10th, Davide had a double bogey 5 at the shot 12th - his third double bogey in two days and turned in three over par after a bogey at the 18th.
On his inward half, Law bogeyed the second, short fourth, fifth, short seventh and eighth.
