Binning best by four at assistants' match-play 

qualifier as 13 advance to Ranfurly  event

Sam Binning (Mearns Castle Golf Academy) led the 13 qualifiers with a sparkling three-under-par 68 at today's Ranfurly assistants' match-play championship qualifying competition at the Ranfurly  Castle venue which will host the main event from August 31 to September 1. 

Binning, pictured,  finished four clear of a starting field of 38 players, thanks to a card that had birdies at the first, third, 11th, and 16th, with bogeys at the sixth and eighth, in halves of 35 and 33.
His nearest rival for the £50 first prize was Tom Dingwall (Kemnay) with a 72. 
Seven players finished on the 79 mark and only two could go forward. The Bathgate pair of Louis Gaughan and Irishman Pierce Whelan survived card play-off, Gaughan despite a quadruple bogey 8 at the second hole in halves of 42-37.
Whelan was one of four with an inward half of 39 and he prevailed  when the counback went down to the closing holes.
