Round up of Scottish Amateur Round two

David Patrick's long wait for competitive action finally ended at Cruden Bay on Tuesday night when he cruised through his second round tie in the Johnnie Walker Scottish Amateur Championship.

The Scotland international from Mortonhall was forced to kick his heels when his first round opponent scratched from the tournament.

But the Edinburgh man ensured there would be no slip-ups when he eventually did get into action, proving far too strong for Powfoot's John Cameron to win five and four.

Two up at the turn, Patrick eased into another gear turning for home with three consecutive birdies at the 10th, 11th and 12th to move five head and he was on the verge of another birdie at the 13th before Cameron conceded the hole and the match.

Although Patrick's win was impressive it was not the biggest of the second round, that honour going to Lundin's Duncan Weir, the assistant championship secretary with the R&A, who beat Peter McMahon of Cardross seven and five.

There were no shocks in the second round with Patrick's international team-mates Simon Mackenzie, Ewan Forbes and defending champion Graham Rankin all progressing safely.
