Carnoustie’s Jess Meek is still leading the Paul Lawrie Golf Centre Scottish Ladies Open Tour Order of Merit after the fifth and sixth events.

They were played at Downfield on Tuesday and Carnoustie Burnside on Wednesday.

Jessica (19) finished out of the leading six for the first time on Wednesday professionals Pamela Pretswell, Pamela Feggans and Holly Clyburn tied for first place with four-under-par 68s.

It’s a Carnoustie 1-2 at the top of the table with second place occupied by Katy McNicoll who won successive events at Trump International, Deeside and Downfield.

The leading professional after the Tour’s 14th event, the Tour Championship over 36 holes and two days at Marriott Dalmahoy on October 9 and 10, will earn free flights and hotel accommodation in Morocco for the Ladies European Tour Qualifying School in December.

The leading amateur will be rewarded with a free stay at Melville Properties’ self-catering accommodation at Gleneagles Village, restricted to a value of £500 by the Rules of Amateur Status.

The Paul Lawrie Scottish Ladies’ Open Tour resumes at Blairgowrie Rosemount on Thursday (July 11) and Alyth on Friday (July 12).
