Zucchetti on Top at St. Andrews
Italy’s Federico Zucchetti won the rain shorten St. Andrew’s Links trophy with a total of 214 (71-71-72). He narrowly beat his fellow countryman Filippo Campigli 215 (71-76-68). On shot back at 216 was a trio that included a pair of Scotsmen, Craig Howie (70-76-70) and Connor Syme (66-77-73) and an Irishman John Ross Galbraith (67-73-76).
The top prize was over 15,000 points. This week the Amateur Championship will be contested at Carnoustie and Panmure. With most of the major titles scattered amongst many of the top players, no one has yet to jump out of the pack and assert himself as Europe’s number 1.
