Two-time Tour winning Ferguson commenced and ended his round with double-bogey ‘6s’ but regrouped to birdie his eighth and ninth holes ahead of four birdies in five holes from his 13th.

He said: “It was successful day if you look at it as a whole.

“Though it was a tale of two nines. I just didn’t hole anything on the front nine.

“I’m in a good position, having made a move on the day and I’ve got to take the positives out of that so I think to be able to build something like this, which gets firm and fast, is cool.

“I don’t have any pressure on me at all. It’s a course I enjoy and, when that’s the case, you stand on the first tee and look forward to playing it.

“I just need to tidy some things up because it’s not how good your good stuff is; it’s how good your bad stuff is.

“So, it’s just about trying to get that scoreboard ticking over.”

Also, on two-under if Craigielaw’s Grant Forrest (70 & 72) while Aberdonian David Law eagled his second holes in a round of 71 to be at level par.
