Syme was tied thirteenth on the midway level however an terrible begin on Saturday meant he finally got here in with a 74. Sunday regarded rather a lot higher for a bit at two-under for the day on the flip, however he was vastly upset to complete with a par 70.
Connor Syme’s bid for an eleventh hour spot on the a hundred and fiftieth Open fell properly brief in the long run, however the Drumoig man’s acquired himself an additional week off and a few momentum for the remainder of the season.
“It’s combined feelings,” he mentioned after finishing a three-over end in forty third. He had the small comfort of sharing the Jock MacVicar Award for prime Scottish finisher with Russell Knox.
“I performed pretty immediately and simply holed completely nothing. I chucked a four-putt in there as properly, which wasn’t ideally suited. However I’m happy with my recreation and whereas there’s areas to work on, I’ll simply carry on coming again.”
What had acquired Connor into place within the first two rounds abandoned him on Saturday – the flexibility to minimise errors.
“I used to be chatting to my Dad (Stuart Syme, the PGA professional) about it and I simply compounded one mistake with one other,” he mentioned.
“The primary I hit in a bunker and three putted, the second I missed the inexperienced once more and adopted it up with a poor pitch shot throughout the inexperienced.
“Right this moment (Sunday) I had a putt to go four-under for the day on 10 and find yourself taking pictures degree. It’s sore, I used to be in a great place to make a great run at a prime 10 at midway however it wasn’t to be.
“Nevertheless it undoubtedly makes me hungrier to get higher.
Syme will miss the Cazoo Open at Hillside the week after The Open earlier than a busy stretch that features two programs he’s had some success on, Celtic Manor and Fairmont St Andrews.
“There’s so many good tournaments after the Open, an incredible bunch within the UK and large cash occasions after that.
“Making an attempt to get the schedule collectively goes to be fairly difficult however I’ve a great plan there. I’ll attempt to play between 27 and 28 this yr.”
Knox missed a 10-foot putt on the final to be prime Scot, and admitted the match had matched his season.
