Cancellation robs McNeill of victory chance on US college circuit

Annan's Duncan McNeill, a third-year student at Toledo University, was deprived of a victory chance on the US college golf circuit when Sunday's final round of the Boilermaker Invitational at Kampen, West Lafayette was cancelled because heavy and prolonged rain on the Kampen course on Saturday night made the course too wet for play.

McNeill, pictured, would have started the final round one shot off the lead held by Bobby Bai (Central Florida) (70-69 for 139) in joint second place with scores of 71 and 69 for 140. The Scot birdied the firest, fourth, sixth, 14th and 17th in his second round. He had three birdies in his Friday round.
Other British players in the field of 93 competitors included Ryan Lumsden from London, a third-year student at Northwestern University, Stuart Easton from Irvine, a third-year man at Western Kentucky, past Scottish boys U18 champion Eric McIntosh, a freshman at Northwestern, and Tom Bevington (Western Kentucky), a second-year student from St Albans, England.
Lumsden had rounds of 72 and 70 for 142 and was lying T5.
East had scores of 71 and 76 for 157 and a share of 30th place with McIntosh (Northwestern) (72-75).
Bevington (Western Kenrucky) shot 78-81 for 159 and joint 85th place.
Kent State and Northwestern, both on the 579 makr, were declared joint team title winners, one shot ahead of Indiana, with Purdue and Toledo another shot behind in joint third place on 581 in a field of 15 teams.
