YORK-BORN golfer Simon Dyson ended the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open in a tie for 35th place.

Dyson closed the Royal Aberdeen event with a one under par round of 70 and finished 14 shots adrift of winner Justin Rose, whose final day 65 took him to 16 under par.

After bogeying the first yesterday, Dyson birdied the second, third and sixth holes. He carded one more birdie, on the 17th, but dropped shots at the 14th and 18th.

On Saturday, Dyson took advantage of his brush with the half way cut to climb the leaderboard.

Having sneaked in on two over par after rounds of 71 and 73, Dyson made a superb start on day three to reach the turn in a five under par 31.

After a birdie on the fifth hole, Dyson eagled the par five sixth and birdied eight and nine.

The back nine started with three dropped shots in five holes, but a birdie at the last put him in the top 30 on one under par.
