Scott Jamieson hung up a 6-under-par 34-31=65 in his opening round at the M2M Russian Open at Skolkovo Golf Club, good enough for a share of the day one lead alongside New Zealand's Daniel Gaunt.
The duo are a shot clear of Lee Slattery and Bradley Dredge while an eight-man group at 4-under includes defending champion David Horsey. Taking advantage of his early tee time, the Scot circled birdies at 10 and 13 on his opening nine and reeled off four on the spin after making the turn. Only one of his gains came on the four par 5s so he'll feel there's more in the tank over the next three days. Jamieson paved the way for his bogey-free lap by splitting 12 (of 13) fairways while he hit 13 greens in regulation. He had 5-for-5 scrambling stats and was also a perfect 4-for-4 from sand. The 31-year-old was solo third when this event was staged at Tseleevo last year so the switch to a new venue has made no difference. In fact, he was also sixth in a Challenge Tour event in his only other start in Russia so he clearly relishes his trips to this part of the globe. Sep 3 - 7:22 AM

Scott Jamieson was third in last year's Russian Open and heads to Moscow this week to try his luck again.

That result -- his best finish of 2014 -- came at Tseleevo while gamers should note that his only other visit to the country resulted in a sixth place at a Challenge Tour event in 2010. He'll be seeing a new course this week as the tournament moves to Skolkovo Golf Club. Jamieson has made his last three cuts on the European Tour to move into the top 100 of the Race To Dubai but, at No. 98, he still has a way to go to secure a place in the top 60 who will contest the season finale in Dubai.

Scott Jamieson blitzed Diamond Country Club for a 7-under-par 32-33=65 on day three of the Lyoness Open and is now within six of the lead.

Jamieson's round, which started with a bogey-6 at the opening hole, was the best of the day and lifted him 27 spots on the leaderboard to tied fourth. He quickly eradicated that dropped shot at the first with five birdies in six holes from the third to turn in 32 and circled further red at 11, 13 and 16. The Scotsman split 10 (of 14) fairways -- seven more than yesterday -- and hit 16 greens in regulation. He was T8 on his only previous appearance at Diamond CC in 2012 so is in great position to better that on Sunday and still has a chance of reeling in leader Grégory Bourdy despite having six shots to make up.

Scott Jamieson was 3-for-3 on the European Tour in May and will bid to keep his streak going at this week's Lyoness Open.

After missing both cuts on the two-week swing in China, Jamieson has found a groove again. He closed with a 64 to finish T31 in the Open de Espana, recovered from an opening 74 to take T27 at Wentworth and battled the winds to secure T30 in the Irish Open. He's had just one previous outing at this week's venue, Diamond Country Club, but that resulted in an eighth place in 2012 so it's a surprise he hasn't been back since. Jamieson is currently 91st on the Race To Dubai.

Scott Jamieson scorched Real Club de Golf El Prat for an 8-under-par 31-33=64 to end the Open de España on a positive note.

After rounds of 72-75-78, Jamieson suddenly clicked on Sunday to beat his Saturday score by 14 shots and finish at 1-over 289. From looking as if he might end the week at the bottom of the pile, the Scot will now finish just outside the top 30. He set the tone with four straight birdies out of the gate and added further par breakers at 8, 14, 15 and 17. Jamieson split 11 (of 14) fairways, hit 15 greens in regulation and needed just 25 putts. This is his lowest round of the season by two shots.

Scott Jamieson captured his only European Tour title in South Africa and will try to make another title challenge there this week.

Jamieson lines up in this week's Africa Open at East London GC having made seven of his last eight cuts worldwide but he hasn't bettered T39 in any of them. And with just four rounds in the 60s in his last 30 laps he's not been seen on any weekend leaderboards. South Africa holds happy memories, however, as he landed the Nelson Mandela Championship in 2012 and was also runner-up in the Volvo Champions a month later. He crashed out at halfway in this event on his only appearance in 2011 after shooting an 82 in the second round.

Scott Jamieson is 3-for-3 at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic and has twice opened with rounds of 65 on the Emirates course.

Those quick starts in 2012 and 2013 put him second and third respectively after day one and in the former he went on to finish T5. In 2013 he slipped to T26 while last year the 31-year-old from Scotland ended T48 after an opening 73. He's struggled so far in the first two legs of the Gulf Swing, missing the cut in Abu Dhabi and settling for T65 in last week's Qatar Masters.

For finishing as the top three not otherwise exempt into The Open Championship inside the top 10 and ties at the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open, Scott Jamieson, Tyrell Hatton and Kristoffer Broberg have earned exemptions into the major.

While arguably the least known of the trio, Broberg topped the other two at Royal Aberdeen with a solo runner-up, two strokes adrift of champion Justin Rose. The Swede closed with a 5-under-par 33-33=66 to post 14-under 270 and clinch his career-best finish on the European Tour. Hatton tied for fourth with three others already exempt at Royal Liverpool this week. The Englishman turned in a Sunday 68 to punch his third ticket into the season's third major. He's 0-for-2 (2010, 2013). Jamieson is also gunning for his first payday in his third start in The Open. He blitzed Royal Aberdeen with a bogey-free, 7-under 31-33=64 today to rise nine spots on the leaderboard into a three-way share of eighth place. (Fellow T8s, Rickie Fowler and Robert Karlsson, were already exempt into The Open.) The final berth into the major will go to the top finisher inside the top five and ties not otherwise exempt at the John Deere Classic.

Scott Jamieson is set for his first attempt at winning the Wanamaker Trophy in this week’s PGA Championship.

Jamieson has been on a dry streak since his T5 at the Volvo World Match Play, missing five cuts in seven tries with a T58 at the BMW International Open his best finish in that span. He must really like Volvos, because his best finish of the year was a solo second at the Volvo Golf Champions. No word as to the official courtesy car at Oak Hill this week.

Richard Sterne, Scott Jamieson, Chris Wood and Stephen Gallacher have earned exemptions into the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship on March 7-10.

The quartet of European Tour members secured berths into the guaranteed payday at TPC Blue Monster at Doral for sitting inside the Race to Dubai at the conclusion of the WGC-Match Play. (The other six were previously eligible.) Sterne leads the lot. Jamieson ranks second; Woods is eighth; and Gallacher is ninth. Each but Sterne will be making his debut in the tournament. The top 10 in FedExCup points at the conclusion of The Honda Classic will also gain entry.

Scott Jamieson was the last man standing in a playoff at Royal Durban Golf Club in South Africa for the inaugural Nelson Mandela Championship, securing the first victory of the 2013-14 season and his first on the European Tour.

What was scheduled as a typical 72-hole event evolved into a 36-hole survival. Heavy rain and storms banged the first two days before organizers cut the event in half. Because of the moisture, the par-70 track was converted into a par 34-31=65. After Steve Webster and Eduardo de la Riva reached the clubhouse in 7-under 123, Jamieson crafted a bogey-free, 8-under 31-26=57 to join them. The trio returned to the 18th hole for the playoff. Jamieson earned the title with consecutive pars, eliminating de la Riva (bogey) on the first trip, and then Webster the second time around. "To get your name on any European trophy is a fantastic achievement," said Jamieson, who poured in eight birdies today, including five on his outward nine, "but it's a little more special when it's for someone like Nelson [Mandela]. At the start of the day I probably didn't think I would be standing here holding the trophy; but I knew I needed a fast start and I was lucky enough to get that."

Scott Jamieson carded a 3-under-par 35-34=69 in the third and final round of the Scottish Open to finish in a share of third place, and winning the tiebreaker for the berth into the British Open.

The Scot finished birdie-birdie at Castle Stuart Golf Links to squeeze inside the top five at 14-under 202, albeit five strokes adrift of winner, Luke Donald. The exemption into the British was reserved for the highest finisher inside the top five not already eligible. Since four of the seven that tied for third had not already secured a tee time at Royal St. George's, the tiebreaker came into play; that is, the golfers' world ranking at the start of the week. Jamieson was 203rd, therefore, Mark Tullo (232nd), Martin Wiegele (305th) and Lorenzo Gagli (353rd) failed to qualify for the major.
