Walker's Battle Trophy lead cut to one shot with 18 holes to play at Crail


Tynesider Wilson wins Battle Trophy after
brilliant third-round 63 at Crail

By COLIN FARQUHARSON
Tyneside's James Wilson came over the Border at the weekend to win the 72-hole Battle Trophy Open over Crail Golfing Society's Craighead links.
Wilson came surging up the field and into title contention with a brilliant third round of nine-under-par 63, which included an eagle and eight birdies.
That slashed the pacemaking Euan Walker's lead from five strokes to one and the Kilmarnock Barassie man could birdie only two hles in his last 27 so he was unable to hold the charging Wilson at Bay.
Wilson actually cooled down with a final round of 73 for five-under-par 283 but that was good enough to finish one stroke in front of Walker whose last round was a 75.
Stonehaven's Scottish champion Sam Locke finished third with 69 for 285.
