Former England cricket captain Michael Vaughan beat the conditions at Carnoustie to post a12 under par total in the Team Championship alongside pro partner Oliver Fisher.
He said: “This place usually beats me up, but I think it was the wind that helped me. I had my best ever round. It’s always a privilege to play Carnoustie.
“I’m playing my favourite course, Kingsbarns, tomorrow. You always feel you’ve got half a chance there as an amateur. You can whack it everywhere!”
