Scott Jamieson made a bold bid to win the Nedbank Golf Challenge at the Gary Player Country Club in Sun City, but his fourth round of 2-under-par 36-34=70 and final total of 10-under 278 were one shy of winner Branden Grace's tally.
The Scot was facing one of the biggest challenges of his career at the start of the day and can conclude that he bore up well to it, even if disappointment might linger over his inability to stick with the home favorite. Starting the day one behind the pre-round lead of Victor Dubuisson he made birdies at 2, 6 and 10, but carved a double bogey-6 at the eighth. However when he made birdie-4 at the 14th (an up and down from 207 yards after finding sand from the tee) he was tied for the lead. At the par-3 16th he shanked his tee shot into hospitality yet it ricocheted into grass. His audacious chip lipped out for the birdie which would have given him the lead, then Grace holed from 35'0" to edge clear. Pars for both followed at 17 and 18. "Played some of the best in the world," he reflected. "Proved I can compete." Nov 12 - 9:18 AM

Scott Jamieson heads into the final round of the Nedbank Golf Challenge holding a one shot lead over Victor Dubuisson after a third round of 5-under-par 33-34=67 earned him a total of 8-under 208 at the Gary Player Country Club in Sun City.

The 33-year-old Augusta State grad is on the brink of a second European Tour title, but the difference between his first (the weather-disrupted 2012 Nelson Mandela Invitational) and this is beyond vast: A win in this event would transform his career. The opportunity to do was created by a fine error-free lap of a track which caused many to falter. He ticked 2, 4 and 9 on the front nine, the latter from 15'0". On the back nine he drained a 25'0" birdie attempt to claim the lead and confirmed it with a chip and putt par breaker at the par-5 14th. Four safe pars closed the round out. He is one clear of Dubuisson and three ahead of Branden Grace and Martin Kaymer on 5-under. "It would be the biggest moment of my career," he said afterwards of potentially winning. "I'll be well aware of that tomorrow. I've got to see if I can step up to the challenge."

Scott Jamieson suffered a late setback as he posted a second round 1-over-par 37-36=73 in the Nedbank Golf Challenge, reaching the 36-hole stage on 3-under 141, three swings shy of the halfway leader Victor Dubuisson.

For the second day running the 18th hole of the Gary Player Country Club track in Sun City tripped up the Scot, marring what had been a solid day to that point, especially as he had to wait three hours to play the final three holes after a delay for lightning and rain. Earlier he had started in a manner spectacularly different to his ending: by making birdie for the second time this week at No. 1. However back-to-back bogeys at 2 and 3 followed. He made up for that with a brace of red at 10 and 11, but before his late lapse there was another at the 14th. Ranked 75th on the Race to Dubai heading into this week, he needs to stay high up the leaderboard if he is to progress to the final week of the season in Dubai.
Nov 10 - 11:56 AM

Scott Jamieson won his only European Tour title in South Africa and he's making an early impression again there this week after twirling a 4-under-par 35-33=68 in the first round of the Nedbank Golf Challenge in Sun City.

That's currently tied for the lead with Victor Dubuisson, Julian Suri, Branden Grace (two to play) and Alex Noren (five left). The Scot claimed his victory in 2013's Nelson Mandela Championship and he's had three other top fours in the country although this is his first appearance at Gary Player Country Club. Today, a 5-5 start from No. 10 put him over par but he quickly turned things around with gains at 12 and 13. Jamieson traded a birdie at 17 with a bogey at 18 before moving into a tie with birdies at 1 and 4 along with a walk-off par breaker at No. 9. At 75th on the Race to Dubai, he needs to climb 15 spots to make next week's DP World Tour Championship field. He's certainly set about it in the right way.
Nov 9 - 7:37 AM

Scott Jamieson could only manage a level-par 35-36=71 on Moving Day at the Andalucia Valderrama Masters but he heads into the final day T4 on 5-under 208, just three back of leader Sergio Garcia.

The Scot's only previous visit to Valderrama, for last year's Open de Espana, saw him post 78-76. He had broken 70 just once in his last 20 rounds in Spain (on courses more attuned to low scoring than this venue). And he was 2-for-7 with a best of T20 coming into this week. Riddle that one. In the third lap it was a greater struggle than earlier in the week, but he remained resolute. A birdie-4 at the fourth was his sole move through the first eight holes, before a double stumble at the turn, with bogeys at 9 and 10. He responded with red numbers at 11 and 15 (the latter thanks to an exquisite chip-in from sand), but will curse the bogey-5 he closed out with. He'll be hoping to make a third top five of the season on Sunday, both of the first two coming prior to April.

Just two players have both rounds in the 60s at the halfway mark of the Andalucia Valderrama Masters in Spain and Scott Jamieson is one of them after hoisting up a 3-under-par 33-35=68 on Friday to nudge up four spots to T2.

The Scot will go into the weekend just one back from Joost Luiten after firing the joint-second best round on Friday as Valderrama really bared its teeth. Jamieson suffered an early setback when making bogey at his second hole but from the fifth to the 16th he scribbled five birdies and seven pars to move into a tie for the lead. It looked as if he might undo a chunk of that good work when driving out of bounds on the par-5 17th but Jamieson made a birdie with his second ball and parred the last to round off an excellent afternoon lap. The 33-year-old, who sits 80th on the Race to Dubai, could only shoot 78-76 when playing this course for the first time in last year's Open de Espana.

Scott Jamieson is 3-for-3 in the Made In Denmark at Himmerland Golf Resort & Spa but will hope to get higher on the leaderboard this time.

The Scot has had to settle for T45, T44 and T57 in his three previous appearances and shot just two rounds in the 60s. However, there was a glimpse of something better last year when he opened with 65 to lie T5 after day one before he undid the good work with a Friday 78. Jamieson has had a frustrating last couple of months with three missed cuts, a DQ and a first-round exit in the Paul Lawrie Match Play but he did post T14 in last July's Irish Open. Earlier this season he also reeled off a run of five top 25s in seven starts from March to early June, highlighted by a third place in the Indian Open.
Aug 22 - 6:13 PM

Scott Jamieson overcame a poor start to steer his way into a tie for the lead late in the second round of the BMW PGA Championship; his 2-under-par 35-35=70 gave him a 7-under 137 which equalled the clubhouse lead of Thomas Pieters.

The Scot was flagging early in his round, making a bogey-5 at the 1st and then adding double bogey-6 at the 3rd. There was a brief recovery with birdie-4 at the 4th only to give the shot back at the 5th. His response was magnificent as he ticked six of the next seven holes (6, 7, 9, 10, 11 and 12). That left him one clear of Pieters on 8-under, but a bogey at the par-4 15th and a failure to birdie either of the par-5 final two holes meant he shared honors with the Belgian. Should they not be passed it would be a third 36-hole lead on the European Tour for Jamieson (including ties, but not including the 36-hole victory he achieved with the weather-shortened 2012 Nelson Mandela Invitational).
May 26 - 12:09 PM

Scott Jamieson took advantage of benign conditions on the first morning of the BMW PGA Championship in England and posted the clubhouse lead with a bogey-free 5-under-par 33-34=67.

Right now, that's one clear of Italian Nino Bertasio. The Scot has only broken 70 three times in 20 laps at Wentworth but beat his previous best 18 by a shot today after keeping bogey off his card. Jamieson made his first move at No. 4 with a birdie at the West Course's opening par 5 and followed it with another circle at the par-3 5th. He made his second '2' of the round with birdie at 10 and added red numbers at 13 and 16 before settling for a pair of closing par 5s. Jamieson has a habit of starting fast and, before this week, he'd finished round one in the top 10 in seven of his last 19 tournaments. He's been in decent form with three top 25s in his last five events, highlighted by a third place in March's Indian Open.
May 25 - 7:05 AM

After tied third place at the Hero Indian Open on his last start, Scott Jamieson will get a first look at Royal Golf Dar Es Salam when he contests this week's Trophee Hassan II in Morocco.

Jamieson has teed it up in this event twice but both those tournaments were played at Golf du Palais Royal; he finished T24 in the 2015 edition. The Scot will hope his putter stays hot after he ranked 5th in Putting Average in India. This week's course in Morocco really favoured those in form on the greens last year and it's also been the key to success for Jamieson. His other performance of note this season came via T4 in December's Alfred Dunhill Championship in South Africa where he topped the Putting Average stats (1.37) for the week.
Apr 11 - 8:01 AM

Scott Jamieson overcame the Sunday blues to card level-par 34-38=72 in the final lap of the Hero Indian Open at DLF Golf & CC, good for T3 on 2-under 286, but some eight shots back of the winner S.S.P. Chawrasia.

Last time out in the Tshwane Open Jamieson held the 54-hole lead only to post a 78 which saw him drop to T22 and it was no one-off in the 2017 season. It may have opened with a T4 in the Alfred Dunhill Championship, where a final round 69 saw him make progress, but thereafter his last round scores were 74, 77 and 76 prior to that effort in Tshwane. Whilst he didn't break 70 Sunday, his level-par score was worth that on a brutally tricked-up course. The front nine was rollercoaster, with red numbers at 3, 5, 7 and 8. He squared blue at 6 and 9, then added another at No. 10. A fourth came at the 15th, but he closed out the tough final stretch with three pars to secure the second top five finish of the season which will move him into the top 60 on the Race to Dubai.
Mar 12 - 8:04 AM

After dropping from joint leader through 54 holes to T22 at the finish in last week's Tshwane Open, Scott Jamieson will look to shake off the disappointment at the Hero Indian Open in New Delhi.

Everything looked good for the Scot in South Africa when he carded rounds of 67-65-68 to enjoy a piece of the lead with 18 holes to play but it all went wrong in a final-round 78, so much so that he even fell out of the top 20. Sometimes getting straight back on the horse is the best remedy and Jamieson will hope that plays out in India this week. He's 3-for-3 in the country although, once more, poor closing rounds have cost him. That was most notable in last year's event when he slipped from T20 after round three to T43 following a 75. He'll hope to change his fortunes on the Gary Player course at the DLF Golf & Country Club this week, a venue being used for the first time.
Mar 8 - 4:09 AM

Overnight co-leader Scott Jamieson kept his name right in the thick of things with a 3-under-par 33-35=68 during the third round of the Tshwane Open, maintaining a share of the lead on 13-under 200 after three days of action.

World No. 396 arrived without a win since the 2013 Nelson Mandela Championship (his lone European Tour win) but he's not backing down at Pretoria Country Club this week. Today, he steadied his way through the outward nine with circles at Nos. 3 and 9 and the rest pars before the turn. On the week, he's played the front-nine at 8-under-par with no bogeys on his card. On his homeward nine, he traded three birdies with a pair of bogeys. The final birdie came at the closing par-5 18th which is sure to provide a fun finish on Sunday. The 33-year-old was paired with rookie Alexander Bjork today, and the duo will tee it up again tomorrow as they both make a push for the hardware while trying to fight off 10 other golfers within four strokes of the lead.
Mar 4 - 9:40 AM

Scott Jamieson won his only European Tour title in South Africa and he's on track to add another there after carding a 6-under-par 31-34=65 in Friday's second round at the Tshwane Open at Pretoria CC to tie the 36-hole lead with Alexander Bjork at 10-under 132.

The Scot captured the 2013 Nelson Mandela Championship and has had three other top fours in South Africa since then including T4 at December's Alfred Dunhill Championship. He again showed his liking for this part of the world with seven birdies against a single bogey today. It was a steady start for Jamieson as he scribbled down four straight pars but then the birdies arrived and he circled red at 5, 6, 8 and 9. Despite a dropped shot at 11, just his second of the week, the 33-year-old responded with birdies at 12 and 14 before joining early starter Bjork for the lead with a final par breaker of the day at No. 17. The duo hold a one-shot lead over England's James Morrison. "Very solid again from tee to green like yesterday," he said. "Delighted with that. I struggled a bit last week from tee to green but it seems to have clicked this week. Hopefully I can hole a few more putts this weekend."
Mar 3 - 6:16 AM

Scott Jamieson had just four pars in his opening 16 holes before painting a 5-under-par 31-36=67 in round one of the season-opening Alfred Dunhill Championship in South Africa.

The Scot's wild ride around Leopard Creek started birdie-eagle-birdie before he dropped a shot at 4. No matter, Jamieson responded with circles at 5 and 6 to hit 5-under before he ran into trouble with a bogey at 8. After three pars, the rollercoaster ride started up again with a bogey at 12 followed by a run of three birdies (13, 14 and 16) against another square at 15. Jamieson signed off with rare pars at 17 and 18 to finish his round in T3 and just a shot behind joint leaders Paul Dunne and Charl Schwartzel. Today's little adventure adds to bigger ones in this part of the world, the highlight a win in the Nelson Mandela Championship in 2012. He also posted T3 in this event the week after landing his sole European Tour win to date.
