Stephen Gallacher put himself in contention for a second European Tour title on home soil with a third round 65 in the Johnnie Walker Championship at Gleneagles – but the Scot is chasing more than the €296,119 winner’s cheque.

“I like the whisky, so it would be nice to win a bottle of it again,” said the 37 year old, whose only previous win came at the 2004 Dunhill Links Championship.

Three birdies in the first four holes helped Gallacher turn in 33, and he finished with a flourish – birdieing the driveable 14th, par five 16th and 18th and chipping in for another gain at the par three in between.

A seven under par round took him to nine under for the week, just two behind clubhouse leader Romain Wattel.

“That's what I needed to do after having a three over first round,” he added.

“I said I needed three really low ones, so I’m just in position, and just hope that no one really runs away with it.

“I said to my caddie on 14, we need a strong finish. I birdied four of the last five - that was pretty good - but I definitely needed to get as high up as I could.”
