Shaw buzzing as Moriarty returns
Murphy condemned to another missed cut
Gary Murphy’s nightmare start to the season continued when he went from tied fourth overnight to missing the cut in the Scottish Hydro Challenge.
The Kilkenny man was brilliantly placed to give his year the kiss of life when he opened with a four under 67 at the Macdonald Spey Valley Golf Course.
But a four over par outward half of 39 undid him completely and while he birdied the 13th coming home, his three over 74 left him one shot outside the cut mark on one-under par.
Step in the right direction for Gary Murphy
Gary Murphy fired his lowest round for 18 months when he opened with a four under par 67 in the Scottish Hydro Challenge at the Macdonald Spey Valley Golf Resort.
The 38-year old Kilkenny man, who lost his European Tour card at end of last season, last shot 67 in the second round of the 2010 Joburg Open.
