Golf: Christian soldiers on after collapse.

SOUTH AFRICAN teenager Christian Ries yesterday shrugged off a nightmare finish to stay on course for the Nike Golf Scottish Boys Stroke Play Championship.

Ries, who opened with a 64 on Wednesday, had a 74 yesterday after dropping five strokes in the last five holes but still has a five-stroke cushion over Prestonfield's Stephen Buckley.

Ries won't be looking to countryman Ernie Els's Open performance for inspiration over Cawder, near Glasgow. Ries said: "Although it would have been good for South Africa if Ernie had won the Open, I didn't mind too much because I had money on Tiger Woods to win!''

Buckley made amends for his disappointing opening 75 with a second-round 68 and a three-over-par total of 143.
