Kirkhill's Craig Ross continued his consistent season after claiming a notable win in France, securing the prestigious Chiberta Grand Prix at Biarritz.
Ross headed an international field by five strokes with a seven-under-par aggregate of 273. He shared the lead in the first round and led for the rest of the 72-hole event.
Ross, who has posted three top-15s domestically in 2015, scored rounds of 70, 69, 67 and 67 over the par-70 layout.
Runner-up on 278 was England’s Alfie Plant (Sundridge Park) with former Scottish Boys champion Craig Howie (Peebles) tied for ninth place on 283. South African Amateur champion Daniel Young (Craigie Hill) finished on 288 and joint 28th. As a result, the Scots managed to claim the team title.
“It was a good week and I was playing well after the Scottish Open qualifier at North Berwick and felt good going into the first round,” said Ross, who is coached by former Gleneagles Scottish PGA champion David Orr. “Playing the last round I just stuck to my game plan, setting myself a target to shoot three under for the day as I felt that would be good enough.
“Playing the last two holes I didn’t know exactly how much of a lead I had, until Danny told me I had three shots to play with. I then birdied 17 which helped and relaxed me for playing the last.”
