PORTOBELLO member John Ralston was cruelly denied a Turnberry triumph in the Scottish Mid-Amateur Championship.

He looked set to claim the crown after his play-off opponent, Englishman Colin Johnson, found deep rough short and left of the first hole on the Ailsa Course.

But, after producing a miraculous up and down to stay alive, Johnson then claimed victory when Ralston three-putted at the next.
