Japanese golfer drops down Open table
Japanese golf sensation Ryo Ishikawa fell down the leaderboard at the Scottish Open following the third round of the famous sporting event over the weekend.
Ishikawa fell to 55th place at the tournament after scoring three over 216 during play on Saturday (July 10th) and speaking to local news source the Scotsman, the teen golf star noted that the inclement Scottish weather was the worst he had ever had to play in.
Italian player Edoardo Molinari eventually won the tournament, his first European Tour win. His brother, also a golfer, came joint third with Swedish Peter Hedblom.
Ishikawa was playing in the event to prepare for the upcoming British Open at St Andrews, which is due to take place this month. If he wins the tournament, he will be the youngest player to ever scoop the title.
This year, the player has taken part in tournaments such as Northern Web Trust, the Arnold Palmer Invitational and the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.
