Biggadike, Cameron, Harling and Rennie last

four in Carnegie Shield match-play

Former Walker Cup golfer and team captain, Northern Ireland's Garth McGimpsey, who won the British Amateur Championship at Royal Dornoch in 1985, led the thirty two qualifiers into the match-play stages of the Carnegie Shield at Royal Dornoch this week with scores of 71 and 68.
He emerged unscathed in round one but unfortunately when one ahead in his second round tie against former three time American winner, Andrew Biggadike (Olympic GC) he had to retire with an injured arm when playing an awkward bunker shot at the 11th hole.
The second qualifier local Bryan Urquhart, who shot a first round four under par 66 is also out, beaten at the 20th in round two by Graham Bell (Bathgate) as is also the holder Inverness's John Forbes, beaten in round three by Fortrose's Alan Cameron.
Biggadike is the only former winner through to Saturday's semi-finals after ousting the last remaining local, Chris Mailley, on the last green. The American will meet Cameron in the first semi-final and the other semi-final is between Banchory's Jack Harling and Ian Rennie (Hindhead)
