DUMFRIES, Scotland (July 16, 2012) -- Edinburgh's James Ross, on summer holidays from US college in Houston, Texas, won the Sutherland Chalice and the 500 premier voucher by a single shot in a tight finish to the SGU Order of Merit 72-hole golf tournament at Dumfries and Galloway Golf Club today.

Royal Burgess member Ross shot 70, 68, 68 and 70 for a four-under-par total of 276.

With a round to go the lead was shared by Downfield's Ross Bell and Scott Crichton (Aberdour). Bell sagged to a final round of 74 after scoring 67-67-69.Crichton's slump was even worse. After very good scores of 67-66-70, he had a 75 which dropped him a a four-way tie for fourth place on 278, two behind the winner and one behind runner-up Bell.

The others were James White (Lundin), Mathew Clark (Kilmacolm) and Michael Daily (Erskine).

Clark (65) and Daily (66) were the only players to break the par of 70 in the last round.

Unusual to see a player of Paul Shields' calibre nearer the bottom than the top of the field. Paul's Sunday rounds of 74 and 80 contrasted with his 69-71 on Saturday.

Two players had holes in one during their second rounds - Jordyn Rhind (Uphall), young brother of Lee, and Neil Henderson (Glen). Rhind's ace came at the 187yd 13th, Henderson's at the 142yd fourth.

Rhind shared the lead on five-under-par 65 with James White after the first round.
