Heather MacRae joint top qualifier for Gleneagles 

Scottish PGA Championship with a two-under 69

Heather MacRae (Gleneagles), Paul Wytrazek (Burntisland) and Craig Everett (Caldwell) today headed the 48 qualifiers from the first of two 18-hole qualifying competitions at Crieff for the Gleneagles Scottish PGA Championship over the King's Course from May 3 to 6.

The leading trio each shot two-under-par 69s and Heather is delighted to maintain her 100 per cent success rate in qualifying for the main event.
"I've only played in the qualifiers once before because they've clashed with something else I was playing in," said Heather, pictured above, who won the Paul Lawrie Ladies Tartan Tour championship two years go.
"I made it through that first time and I'm delighted to have done it again because the King's is my favourite course."
MacRae birdied the second, sixth, eighth, 11th and 18th in halves of 35-34.
Heather is not the only female professional to have played in the Scottish PGA championship.
Lossiemouth-born Meg Farquhar played in the tournament over her home course in 1933.
Wytrazek birdied the second, fifth, seventh and ninth in 34-35 figures whle Everett had the fewest birdies - the fourth, ninth and 12th, because he had only one bogey, at the 18th, in halves of 35-34.
There was no needed for a sudden-death play-off at the end of the day, there being precisely the required figure of 48 players with scores of 77 and better.
The second 18-hole qualifying competition will be held over the same course tomorrow.
