The Blairgowrie Golf Club member did not waste any time or extra energy in advancing to the semi final stage with a convincing 7/6 victory against Magnus Haraldur from Iceland.
The 2014 South African Amateur Open Stroke play and St Andrews Links Trophy runner-up came out of the blocks very quickly with some really hot scoring to take a commanding lead and stamp his authority on the quarter-final tie.
Neil, opened up with birdies at his first two holes to go two up and carded further sub par figures at holes 4, 5 and 8, to reach the turn 5 up. On the way home, the Perthshire & Kinross Men’s County Golf Team player posted a birdie at hole 10 and closed the game out with two pars at the 11th and 12th holes.
The Scottish Golf International will now face compatriot, Connor Syme, the son of PGA Professional, Stuart Syme, who won the all-Scottish match between 2014 Irish Open Amateur Stroke play Champion, Jamie Savage, at the 19th Hole.
This result now means, Scotland will have a guaranteed finalist in The Amateur Championship 2014.
In the top half of the draw, leading qualifier Daniel Brown of England lost to compatriot, Sean Towndrow at the first extra hole.
Towndrow, will face highly rated South African golfer, Zander Lombard, who beat England’s Paul Howard by 3/2.
