GOLFER Chris Paisley carded two sub-70 rounds on his way to an impressive finish at the Scottish Open.

The former Stocksfield Golf Club junior player finished on 13-under par at the event, which took place at the Renaissance Club, North Berwick, alongside Northern Irishman Rory McIlroy.

Paisley, who was tied for 34th place overall, finished nine strokes behind Austrian Bernd Wiesberger, who was crowned champion on Sunday.

Wiesberger, and Frenchman Benjamin Hebert were locked together on 22-under par after all four rounds, before the Austrian won at the third sudden-death play-off hole.

In a field of over 150 European Tour players, this was a productive week for Paisley, who carded rounds of 65, 70, 66 and 70, earning prize money of €42,853. In May, he finished sixth at the Made In Denmark event.
