With only two more events contributing to the annual Order of Merit Award, there are at least a dozen players with a realistic chance of taking the season’s top honour.

The latest major was the EGGS Medal, and the runaway winner was EGGS captain Mike Lidster whose magnificent 65 to take the trophy by four shots.

His playing partners reported some fantastic putts and only bad luck stopped an even better score.

Alan Howson was three-under-par with 69 to take second place, with Ian Doig once again in the mix with a solid round of 70.
