Scotland’s golfing stocks have received a huge boost with four players – Grant Forrest,  Liam Johnston, Robert MacIntyre and David Law – earning full 2019 European Tour membership.

The Tartan foursome finished among the leading 15 on the overall season money list after four rounds at the secondary Challenge Tour Ras Al Khaimah Grand Final on the Al Hamra course in the UAE.

It will also be the first time all four have held a full European Tour card.

Forrest, 25 birdied four of his closing six holes in a 68 for the Craigielaw star and former Crail Battle Trophy winner to share 10th place on eight-under par and finish top-Scot in seventh place on the final 2018 money list.
