SCOTTISH AMATEUR CHAMPIONSHIP - Stuart Robin caries Ayrshire hopes into the quarter finals.

Stuart Robin (Prestwick St Cuthbert) will carry Ayrshire hopes into the quarter finals of the 2015 Scottish Amateur Championship at Muirfield on Friday morning, after the fourth and fifth rounds were completed on Thursday and saw the other two remaining Ayrshire players bow out.

Robin played Colin Martin (Balbirnie Plark) in the fourth round on Thursday morning and ran out a comfortable winner by 5 & 3 to set up fifth round tie against Chris McLean (Balmore) in the afternoon. In a close match, Stuart Robin prevailed by 2 & 1 to book his place in the last eight of the national championship for the first time.
