Ireland's Gavin Moynihan has put together a brilliant final 36 holes at the Scottish Stroke Play Championship to win the historic event by two shots over England's Nick Marsh, Ireland's Jack Hume and Australian Geoff Drakeford.

Drakeford, from the Commonwealth Golf Club in Melbourne, led comfortably into the final round but an impressive start by Moynihan, who birdied his opening four holes, had Drakeford struggling to hold on.

Drakeford still had a chance with two holes to play but bogies at both cost him a chance of victory.

Drakeford gets a chance to atone when he tees it up at the St Andrews Links Trophy at St Andrew starting this Friday.

South Australian Anthony Murdaca finished in a share of 5th after starting the final round in second postion and four behind Drakeford.
