Maybin looks forward to Muirfield challenge

Ballyclare golfer Gareth Maybin hopes to build on his joint fifth place finish at the Scottish Open when he plays at Muirfield this week.

Maybin will be competing in the Open Championship for the second time, having missed the cut at St Andrews in 2010, having "been on the wrong end of the draw".

The Northern Ireland man, who has already secured his European Tour card for next season, played nine practice holes with 2011 Open champion Darren Clarke on Monday.
