Simon Dyson fires birdie blitz in nick of time to beat Gleneagles cut
A HIGH-FIVE of stunning form restored York’s Simon Dyson to contention in the Johnnie Walker Championship.
In danger of missing the half-way cut after a first round level-par 72 at Gleneagles, Dyson followed up an electric start with a barrage of birdies over the concluding holes of yesterday’s second round.
He finished the day with a five-under 67 rising no fewer than 56 places to be poised in a tie for 25th spot.
Knowing he had to make a quick impact, the world number 162 was in profit when he carded a superb eagle three on the par-five 516-yard second hole.
However, his joy at that searing start was tempered by a bogey on the eighth, and with the scores narrowing, the projected cut was a daunting two-under-par.
Dyson was struggling to make further inroads as he settled into a run of pars, but then came his stunning return.
