FINNINGLEY’S Graeme Clark stands third on the PGA EuroPro Tour Order of Merit after a second place finish at Burhill Golf Club in Surrey.

Clark, of Doncaster Golf Club, finished one shot behind Basingstoke’s Stuart Archibald in the Kerry London PGA EuroPro Tour 20 competition.

He started the last day in joint second but his hopes were dashed when he made three bogeys in the opening four holes.

Clark, who finished four under par, carded rounds of 71, 67 and 74 to claim the £5,000 second prize.

The former 2007 Order of Merit winner is only ranked behind Archibald and Jamie Lee Abbott in the current Order of Merit.

Archibald had been an early clubhouse leader on the first day, ended the second day on top of the leaderboard and led from the front on the final day to claim the £10,000 first prize.

The next Tour event will be held on June 15 from Bovey Castle in Devon.
