John Paterson (19) makes final round swoop to win Cameron Corbett Vase

By COLIN FARQUHARSON
John Paterson, Scottish boys' stroke-play champion in April 2017, scored his best victory since then when he won the prestigious Cameron Corbett Vase over 72 holes at Haggs Castle Golf Club, Glasgow today.

Paterson, a 19-year-old member of the St Andrews New Golf Club, stepped in to win by two shots with a 14-under-par total of 274 when long-time leader, Robbie Morrison, a Scot on a golfing holiday from Australia, slipped with a final round of 74 for 277.
Morrison, who bogeyed the fifth and sixth and then had a double bogey at the eighth, in his final round, sagged to a final placing of fourth behind Highlander Jeff Wright from Forres and Graeme Robertson (Glenbervie). Wright closed with two 69s on Sunday for 276 while Robertson shot 70-71 today for 277.
Paterson had scores of 69, 70, 67 and 68, notching six birdies in his last-round glory run, the most important being the gains at the 15th, 17th and 18th which took him to the front for the first time.
