After 14 successive missed cuts during a torrid 2017 campaign, Duntocher’s Scott Henry finished 12th at last week’s European Tour event in the BMW International Open in Munich.

The 30-year-old finished with a score of 71 for 10 under, to finally put an end to a dispiriting run of results.

Henry hasn’t made a single penny in 2017 but the former Scottish Strokeplay champion was on course for a payday, heading into the final round on Sunday tied sixth.

Henry, who is back on the main European circuit for the first time since 2013, was able to finish 12th and win just over £29,000 in prize money as he moves up to 196th in the Race to Dubai.

Andres Romero held off the challenge of Masters champion Sergio Garcia and England’s Richard Bland to win his first title in nine years at the BMW International Open.

The Argentinian was playing on a sponsor’s invite in Munich and had slipped to 837th in the world since his last victory at the 2008 Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

He showed no signs of that alarming drop in form on Sunday, however, carding a closing bogey-free 65 to get to 17 under and beat Bland, Garcia and Belgium’s Thomas Detry by a single shot.

Meanwhile Scott’s brother John missed the cut this week at the EuroPro event at Studley Wood Golf Club in England.

John shot two over par over the first few days, his first round score of three over costing him, with the cut at two under par.

Chris Lloyd went on to win his second consecutive event on the EuroPro, after winning a play-off against Alasdair Dalgliesh.
