Ryan Campbell (Falkirk) beat Joshua Jamieson (St Andrews) at the seventh hole of a sudden-death play-off to win the Cameron Corbett Vase after 10pm at Haggs Castle Golf Club
Campbell scored his biggest golf win with a birdie 4 at the first hole on the Glasgow course.

Both players had finished on 13 under par 203 for the 54 hole tournament. Only one round was possible on Saturday because of heavy rain on that morning flooded parts of the course temporarily.
 Josh, the 2011 Scottish boys' open stroke-play champion,  had scores of 68, 65 and 70 and Ryan, 68, 68 and 67.

Jamieson, pictured with the Scottish boys' stroke-play trophy, a student at Northwestern University, Illinois - Luke Donald went there too -  had been the leader by three shots after Sunday's second round.
At that point, Matthew Clark (Kilmacolm) 67-69, Liam Johnston (Dumfries and County) 69-67 and Ryan Campbell were tied for second place on 136,

Haggs Castle general manager Jim Callaghan reports:

In the playoff which took place on holes 1 and 18, both par 5’s, each player birdied each hole 3 times until Ryan prevailed with a further birdie. After a great drive which split the fairway, Ryan hit a rescue club 210 yards onto the green to about 30 feet. Joshua was in the trees on the left and hit a second shot which clipped a branch and left him about 80 yards from the pin. His 3rd shot also clipped a branch but finished about 7 feet from the pin. Ryan narrowly missed his eagle attempt and after Joshua missed his 7 footer, Ryan tapped in from 6 inches for the win.
