Lumsden and McIntosh help Northwestern 

score back-to-back wins on US college circuit

Two Scots students at Northwestern University, Illinois, where former British boys champion David Inglis, also a Scot, is an assistant coach, Ryan Lumsden, pictured below top, and current Scottish U18 boys champion Eric McIntosh from Edinburgh have helped the NW team to score back-to-back victories on the American men's college golf circuit.

Today (Sunday), they clinched victory in the UNCG/Grandover Collegiate tournament by the narrow margin of two strokes from runners-up North Carolina (875) with Duke (879) third and North Carolina State (890) fourth in the 10-team event at Grandover Resort's East Course, a long, 7,245yd par-72 lay-out at Greensboro, North Carolina.
Dylan Wu, also a Northwestern student, was the individual winner by four strokes with scores of 69, 70 and 70 for a seven-under-par total of 209.

Ben Griffin (North Carolina) was second on 213 (71-71-71) with Ryan Lumsden (Northwestern) third on 215 (75-71-69) alongside Stephen Franklin (North Carolina State) (73-72-70).
Eric McIntosh, pictured right, still on a learning curve as regards playing conditions in America, returned scores of 76, 80 and 75 for a total of 231 and a share of 46th place.
David Inglis has no doubt that McIntosh will settle to become one of the key players of the Northwestern team for which Luke Donald starred during his college days. 

Landfall Tradition event's final round cancelled

Bad weather which produced "unplayable conditions," according to the tournament website, forced the cancellation of today's third and final round at the imporant women's college event, the Landfall Tradition at Country Club of Landfall, Wilmington, North Carolina.
So that meant the individual and team titles were decided on Saturday's 36-hole totals.
