I’m really looking forward to building on this win with the Tour Championship around the corner.
Billy Spooner won his second EuroPro Tour title of the year at the Newmachar Golf Club Challenge in Aberdeen.
He started the week with a round of 65 to lead by two and heavy winds reduced the tournament to 36 holes.
After a second round of 69 with a par on the last he was locked at -10 with Thomas Robson to foce a play-off.
Blily made a superb par on the 10th and they could not be separated on 18 and a birdie on the 10th - the third play-off hole - was enough to secure his second win of the year.
Billy said: “It’s amazing to get my second win of the season, and to do so with my Dad on the bag is even more special, my team is the strongest it has ever been and I can’t thank everyone who has been involved this season enough.
“I’m really looking forward to building on this win with the Tour Championship around the corner, hopefully I can carry on and make more progress up the Order of Merit now I’ve secured a spot on the Challenge Tour.”
Kevin Phelan finished in a share of 26th place in Scotland.
