Favourite Hutcheon ties for 10th in Carnegie Invitational at Skibo Castle

McKechnie, Forsyth and Henderson win 

£4,216 each after triple tie for victory

Greig Hutcheon (Paul Lawrie Golf Centre), favourite to win the lucrative Carnegie Invitational 36-hole tournament for a third time since 2007 after sharing the halfway lead, could finish only tied 10th behind joint winners Pyaul McKechnie (Braid Hills), Alastair Forsyth (Mearns Castle) and Scott Henderson (Kings Links).
The trio all hit the one-under-par 141 mark, McKechnie with rounds of 72 and 69, Forsyth and Henderson both with 71 70.
They each earned £4,216 from the £47,000 prize fund over the Carnegie Club links at Skibo Castle.
McKechnie's second round started inauspiciously with bogeys at the first and second but he got into his stride with birdies at the eighth, 14th, 16th and 17th in halves of 36-33 over the testing par-71 lay-out.
Forsyth had a double bogey 6 at the ninth while Henderson, winner of the tournament in 2008 and 2011, started badly with bogeys at the second and sxith but went on to birdie the eighth, 13th and 14th
They finished a shot ahead of Neil Fenwick (Dunbar) whose pair of par 71s earned him £3,000. Fenwick won the event in 2013.
As for Hutcheon, he required 38 shots to reach the turn, including a double bogey 6 at the eighth. Although he birdied the 14th and 18th, they were offset by three bogeys in an inward 37. Still, he earned £2,225 for a share of 10th place, and that keeps him ahead in the money-winners' table.
Greg McBain (Paul Lawrie Golf Centre), who earned £2,510 for a share of fifth place, led the "Crazy Canucks" trio of Les Wallace (handicap 18), Ellen Wallace (13) and Mitchell Wallace (12) to victory in the pro-am team event with a net total of 32-under-par 252 for the 36 holes.
