JOBURG OPEN

Scottish golfers Scott Henry, Sean Jacklin and Andrew McArthur have made the cut at the Joburg Open, with three qualifying places for the Open Championship at St Andrews to be decided.


The trio all shot under par rounds to make it to the weekend, but will be hoping to make up ground on sole leader Wallie Coetsee, who is on 12-under par.

Henry made a fantastic start on day one of the Joburg Open with a six-under round of 65 and followed that up on the tougher East Course today with a bogey-free 71, taking him to seven-under for the competition and T21.

Edinburgh-born Jacklin, son of English two-time major winner Tony Jacklin, made the cut in his first European Tour event and is currently T31 on six-under par.

McArthur (pictured above) was the final Scot to make it through on five-under par, but Craig Lee, Chris Doak, David Drysdale, all two-under, and Amateur champion Bradley Neil, three-over, didn’t make it to the weekend.

Other high profile names to miss the cut include European Ryder Cup captain and 2011 Open champion Darren Clarke, who finished one-over, Edoardo Molinari and S.S.P Chawrasia, who finished runner-up at the Hero Indian Open last week.

Clarke and Molinari are exempt from Open qualification, as are defending Joburg Open champion George Coetzee, who sits in contention on eight-under, and compatriot Thomas Aiken, nine-under.
