Ruth fails to make cut in tour opener
ST MELLION touring professional James Ruth missed the cut as he teed off his 2013 European Challenge Tour campaign in India.
Plymouth-born Ruth (right) scored a level par 72 in his opening round in the Gujurat Kensville Challenge at the Kensville Golf and Country Club in Ahmedabad.
He followed that up with a four over par 76 in round two yesterday and missed the cut for the top 54 players and ties by one shot.
Ruth – who turned professional in November 2006 – celebrated his 28th birthday a week before jetting out to India and the start of his season-long Challenge Tour commitment.
