    DUNCAN STEWART: "GREAT EXPERIENCE."   Picture by Stewart Grant

Duncan Stewart finished three over par at the Johnnie Walker Championship in Gleneagles, missing the cut, which was set at three under. 

It may not have been the result that the Scot had wanted, but featuring on the PGA European Tour for the first time and the experience he gained from playing on that tour was far greater.

The 29-year-old from Grantown-on-Spey, represented by MB Partners, got the invitation to play in the tournament on the Monday. In his first round on Thursday, he picked up three birdies and ended the day with an eagle on the 18th, to put him at level par 72 on the Centenary Course, which plays host to next year’s Ryder Cup.

Stewart started his second round on the back nine, scoring a birdie on the 11th to move him to one-under-par. He was able to pick up a couple more birdies over the course of the round, but unfortunately wasn’t able to find any magic in his putter causing him to slip back down the leaderboard. 

“I am disappointed with how I played over the last couple of days, I just couldn’t seem to putt which was frustrating as my tee and fairway shots were pretty decent,” said Stewart. 
“It was a great experience to play in the Johnnie Walker Championship and also participate in my first European Tour and hopefully this won’t be my last. I need to get back to the driving range and put in some more practice before I play in Ireland next week.”

The next tournament for Stewart will be back on the Challenge Tour in the Northern Ireland Championship at Galgorm Castle Golf Club and Estate in County Antrim from August 29th to September 1st.
