Wellingborough’s Simon Lilly produced solid but ultimately unsuccessful performance in Open Championship qualification.
Taking part in final local qualifying at North Berwick Golf Club, he shot two even-par rounds of 71.
However, that was not enough to earn him a top-three spot and a place at Muirfield later this month.
Lilly was taking part in one of four competitions which were, between them, offering the final 12 spots at the Open.
Among the high-profile names missing out in the event was Ryder Cup legend Colin Montgomerie.
