Calum Scott was the first to tee off at the Amateur Championship.

He managed to complete a bogey free round when he finished with -4 in his opening 18 holes yesterday.

He managed to pick up three of his four birdies in the first round at par five holes at the seventh, 10th, 15th and 18th as he excelled where most other players was struggling to finish above par.

Scott should now be in a comfortable position to compete in the matchplay stages of the competition.

His older brother Sandy, who competed at the US Open last year, was forced to pull out of the competition on Sunday night.

He failed to recover from a wrist injury which also forced him out of the Great Britain squad which competed at the Walker Cup earlier this year.

Nairn golfer Fraser Fotheringham will need a better second round tomorrow if he is to have a chance of making the matchplay stages.

The 31-year-old had a poor performance in the opening round when he finished the day on +11, which included a triple bogey on the fifth.
