Ronnie Clark wins West of Scotland Senior Open at West Kilbride
Ronnie Clark (Erskine) won the West of Scotland Senior Open at West Kilbride (sponsored by McCrea Financial Services) with a one-under-par total of 141 (71-70).
Ronnie shared the overnight lead with Paul Moultrie (Royal Troon) and his first round effort of level par 71 was an excellent score, given that he played in the worst of the weather conditions.
He did not get off to the best of starts in the second round with a bogey at the second hole and a double bogey at the third. He repaired some of the damage with birdies at the fifth and seventh, but bogeyed the short ninth for an outward half of 38 (2 over par). His score was made on the back nine with birdies at the 11th, 12th, 15th and 16th and although he bogeyed the tough 17th, his round of one under par 70 was good enough to give him the top prize.
Gary Tough (Edzell) was second with a total of 142 (73, 69). His second round was very steady with birdies at the third, 10th and 12th. His only bogey came at the eighth.
In third place on 145 (76-69) was Robert Jenkins (Royal Troon) who eagled the 3rd and birdied the 14th, but dropped a shot at the 9th.
Joint overnight leader Paul Moultrie (Royal Troon) finished in joint fourth place after a disappointing 76 today.
The top handicap prize was shared by Gary Cochrane (Irvine Ravenspark) (3) and Phil Dempsey (Tulliallan) (4) on 141. Jalil Aman (Grangemouth) (3) was third on 143.
Alan White (Newton Stewart) had a hole in one at the 12th in the second round.

NICK ROBSON WINS SENIOR SOUTH OF SCOTLAND OPEN BY ONE SHOT
Nick Robson (Meldrum House) won the South of Scotland Open at Powfoot by one shot from Stewart Henderson (Hamilton).
Overnight leader Nick added a level par round of 71 to his opening 74 for a total of 145. Stewart shot a best of the day 70 to add to his first round of 76, for a total of 146. Third place went to Jim Graham (Lochmaben) on 151 (76, 75).
The players had to contend with heavy rain and high winds on day one, and although there was very little rain today, a strong wind made scoring very difficult.
Nick bogeyed the third, fifth and seventh but picked up birdies at the fourth, fifth and 14th for his round of 71. Stewart bogeyed the 6th and 12th, but birdies at the second, third and 14th gave him a round of 70.
Nick also won the Scottish Seniors Match-play Championship at Alyth two weeks ago, and today's win takes him to the top of the SSGS Order of Merit table with a 60 point lead over Graham Bell (Downfield), who was unable to play at Powfoot. Stewart Henderson moves up to third place in the table.
There was a three way tie on 147 for the bronze medal, awarded to the player with the best net total, between Jim Emslie (Royal Aberdeen) (4) (75-72), David Taylor (St Andrews New) (3) and Jim Graham (Lochmaben) (2)

Autumn Meeting 24/25 August at Strathmore G.C
STEWART HENDERSON WINS SENIORS AUTUMN MEETING
Stewart Henderson (Hamilton) celebrated his recent call up to the Scottish Senior International team by winning the Scottish Senior Golfing Society Autumn meeting at Strathmore. Stewart returned two rounds of 2 under par 70 for a total of 140 to win by one shot from Jim Emslie (Royal Aberdeen) and Lindsay Blair (Grangemouth) on 141. The early starters had the best of the conditions as there was some heavy rain in the afternoon. Stewart was one of four players who shared the overnight lead and he played a very steady round in the rain, recording sixteen pars along with birdies at the par five 5th and the short par four 10th.
Jim Emslie was one of the early starters and returned a superb five under par 67 to add to his opening round of 74. His only bogey was at the tricky par four 14th, but he birdied the 1st, 4th, 5th, 12th 13th and 16th in what he described as his best ever round of golf. Lindsay Blair was another late starter who played most of his round in rain. He was a joint overnight leader on 2 under par 70, and added a 71 to tie for second place. Lindsay birdied the 5th and 12th and was 2 under par with four holes to play. However, he bogeyed the 15th and 17th before birdieing the 18th.
Graham Bell (Downfield) finished in fourth place on 143 (72, 71), and he now leads the Order of Merit which will be decided at Blairgowrie next month.
4 handicapper Jim Emslie had the consolation of winning the handicap section with a total of 133. He won by eight shots from Ian Logue (Northumberland) (5) and Colin Mavor (New Club, St Andrews) (8).
Strathmore proved to be an excellent venue for this event. The course was in superb condition and the catering was first class.

Finals Day 15 September at Blairgowrie
Our Finals day was held in blustery conditions on Blairgowrie's Lansdowne course today. At the start of the day there were only three players who could win the Order of Merit title - Graham Bell (Downfield), Stewart Henderson (Hamilton) and Nick Robson (Meldrum House).
All three played together today in the last group and Nick, who finished with an 80, saw his hopes vanish with a poor start. Only 3pts separated last year's winner, Graham Bell, and Stewart Henderson at the start of play, meaning that Graham needed to stay at least level with Stewart to retain the title.
After a few twists and turns the pair stood on the 18th tee level at two over par for the round. However, Graham missed a 5 ft putt and bogeyed the last hole. Stewart’s par was enough to give him the title by the smallest of margins.
Stewart finished tied for third place on the day, giving him 113 pts, while Graham finished alone in fifth place and earned 90 points.
Best score of the day were level par 72s from Keith Bruce (Edzell) and Duncan Hamilton (Mortonhall). Keith bogeyed the seventh and eighth but recovered with birdies at the 11th and 17th. Duncan got off to the best possible start with an eagle at the par 5 first hole and a birdie at the fourth, but he bogeyed the third, seventh and 11th. Stewart and Phil Dempsey (Tulliallan) tied for third spot on two over par 74.
Stewart had a very steady round with 16 pars and bogeys at the fifth and seventh. Phil’s round was rather different - he birdied the first, sixth, seventh and 11th, but bogeys at the third, fifth, 15th, 17th and a double bogey at the 13th gave him a 74.
Final Order of Merit placings:
Stewart Henderson (Hamilton) 903 pts, Graham bell (Downfield) 883, Nick Robson (Meldrum house) 785, Robert Smith (Nairn) 633, Paul Moultrie (Royal Troon) 632.
Keith Bruce (Edzell) won the Super Seniors (age 65+) Order of Merit.

He had looked set for a good first round yesterday when he turned in 34 but then faded to an inward half of 40. Determined to do better today and turning in 33, Andrew made fine birdies at holes 15 and 17 to come home in 34 and secure victory.
In the handicap section , whilst Andrew also finished top on Net 143, as you cannot win both evets, the Bronze medal goes to joint second place finisers, Duncan Hamilton and Sandy Calder on 145.

In the Handicap Competition Ken Forrest (Lenzie G.C) and Alan Ross Northumberland G.C.) shared top spot with an aggregate Net total of 143, with Jim McArthur (New Club St Andrews) finishing 3rd 1 shot back.

Malcolm Reid (Sonning) and David Shields (Glenearn) tied for the West of Scotland Seniors Open (sponsored by McCrea Financial Services) at West Kilbride today with fine aggregates of 146, one shot ahead of the consistent Ian Angus (Duff House Royal) who closed with a fine 72 on 147.

As befits a former marine, Malcolm battled hard for his second consecutive score of 73, finishing with a birdie to secure a tie with David who had set the early target as the overnight leaders, Gordon MacDonald (Glenbervie) and John Johnston (Lanark) faded with scores of 76 and 78 respectively.
There was a five-way tie for fourth place on 148 involving Gordon MacDonald, David Gardner (Broomieknowe), Laurie Chancellor (Inverness), Bradford Muir (Marriott Dalmahoy) and Stewart Millar (Cochrane Castle), whose second round 71 was the best score of the event.

Central Scotland 7/8 July at Glenbervie
Ronnie Clark wins Central Scotland Seniors Open by five strokes
Ronnie Clark (Erskine) continued his domination of the Central Scotland Seniors Open with a fourth consecutive win at Glenbervie.
His excellent second round of 67 gave him an aggregate total of 137 and a five shot win over his closest challenger, Andrew Stracey (Denham).
Order of Merit leader Graham Bell (Downfield) added a second 72 to take third place on 144 with Aberdeen businessman Nick Robson (Meldrum House) filling fourth place on 146.
Tom Sirel (Largs), 71 years old, was unable to match Thursday's excellent score of 70, going out in 41 but he returned home in a level par 36 for a total of 147 and fifth place.
David Gardner (Broomieknowe) and Lindsay Blair (Grangemouth) tied for sixth place on 148.
English Senior internationalist Andrew Stracey, who won the North Seniors in May, again showed his liking for his regular visits north of the border. He fired five birdies in a fine second round of 69 to set an early target of 142 as one by one the main overnight challengers dropped away.
Playing in the last match, Ronnie had other ideas as he raced to the turn in 31 with four birdies, A dropped shot at the 10th hole was a slight setback which he overcame with further birdies at the 15th and 17th holes before the slight disappointment of a dropped shot at the tricky last hole.
This was another fine performance which takes Ronnie a step closer to his aim of repeating last year’s Order of Merit win.10th July

Lindsay Gordon set the early target in the fourth game on the course but dropped shots late on in compiling his 75. It looked as if Robert Smith would overtake him when he turned in 36 but a disappointing homeward half of 40 meant he could only tie. With the back nine playing increasingly harder as the day progressed, Lindsay and Finnie also dropped shots, returning in 39 and 40 respectively.
Playing in the last match Grant McNab looked as if he might overtake the leading group or at least join a five-way tie but his chance went with a costly 7 at the par 5 sixteenth hole.
The CSS for the day was 75 for the par 72 course.

Spring Meeting 23/24 April 2015 at Scotscraig
"Debut victory for Keith Reilly at the Scottish Seniors' Spring Open at Scotscraig"
The 2015 season kicked off at Scotscarig on 23rd April and What a glorious start with Blue skies and still conditions which promised two days of enjoyable and challenging golf.
The course was beautifully presented however fast-running fairways and greens meant that great control was required to turn in a good score. Our first group of the year was made up of Malcolm Reid, Kenny Gardiner and Henry Anderson who got the season off to a great start.
Keith Reilly (Silverknowes), playing in his first Scottish Seniors Golfing Society event, won the Spring Meeting at Scotscraig with a fine aggregate of 144 which left him 4 shots clear of overnight leader, Malcolm Reid (Sonning) and another debutant, Paul Moultrie ( Royal Troon).
Lying one stroke behind after the first round, Keith produced a fine 70 to secure his win. A scratch player, Keith is a multiple winner of the Silverknowes club championship and a former winner of the Lothians Champion of Champions event. Having turned 50 in September, this was his first SSGS event and one he will remember for a long time, particularly as he also won a trip to Spain, courtesy of Campbell Lamont Golf Leagues, along with David Downie (Kirriemuir) who had the second best net score in the event with a 147 Net and wins the Bronze medal. Unfortunately Keith cannot attend Spain so Ken Davidson who finished 3rd in net scores will take in his place.
Scotscraig again proved to be an excellent and hospitable venue but the fast running conditions proved very difficult for the bulk of the field and this was reflected in the CSS of 75 Reduction Only on day 1 and 75on day 2, which is some 3 shots higher than the SSS.
Scratch (Gold) KEITH REILLY (SILVERKNOWES)
Handicap (Bronze) DAVID DOWNIE (KIRRIEMUIR)
North of Scotland 21/22 May at Elgin
East of Scotland 4/5 June at Downfield
Downfield was in excellent condition for the 2 days and for once we were blessed with decent weather, which was appreciated by all players.
124 players teed off on the Thursday and at the end of the 2 days Bob Stewart from Tulliallan emerged victorious by the narrowest of margins of 1 shot. Bob's rounds of 2 over par 74 and 1 under 71 total 145 pipped the pairing of Nick Robson (Meldrum House) and Paul Moultrie (Royal Troon) who had a very creditable total of 146.
On the handicap side Murray Ferguson (Stirling Golf Club) was a clear winner by 4 shots with an aggregate net total of 139, some 9 shots below the combined CSS of 148. (Round 1 74, Round 2 74).

In a very tight finish at Cardross today, Lindsay Blair (Grangemouth) tied with Keith Reilly (Silverknowes) for the Westof Scotland Seniors Open Championship with aggregate scores of 141.
They finished one shot ahead of defending champion Bob Stewart (Tulliallan), whose round included a hole in one at the 15th, and who tied for third place with the overnight leader, Nick Robson (Meldrum House).
Lindsay and Keith were late starters, scoring second rounds of 71 and 70 respectively to complete their fine aggregate totals. Keith, who is playing in his first season on the circuit, has made an immediate impact with two wins already, having won the Spring Open at Scotscraig in April.
Lindsay, who won the Scottish Seniors Championship in 2012, will take great confidence into next week’s championship at Deeside. Bob Stewart, champion in 2008 and the winner of the East Seniors last week, will also fancy his chances at Deeside, having hit form at the right time. Keith and Nick are, however, ineligible for that event as they are under the age limit of 55.
Graham Forrest (Northumberland) finished fifth on 144 and Andrew Campbell (Murcar Links) finished on joint sixth with Paul Moultrie (Royal Troon).
Mark Laverick (Stocksfield), John Gullen (Tillicoutry) and Bob Stewart (Tulliallan) all picked up a Bronze medal with net 140.
Scratch (Gold) Lindsay Blair & Keith Reilly
Handicap (Bronze) Mark Laverick, Bob Stewart & John Gullen.

Central Scotland 2/3 July at Glenbervie
In a very tight finish at Glenbervie, the holder Ronnie Clark (Erskine) tied with Duncan Hamilton (Mortonhall) on 142. They finished one shot ahead of Paul Moultrie (Royal Troon) and Lindsay Blair (Grangemouth) on 143.
Duncan Hamilton sprang from the chasing pack with a superb second score of 68 which included an inward half of 33 to set a target of 142. Paul Moultrie reached the turn in 33 and looked set to better this but came home in 40 due to some putting lapses.
That left Ronnie Clark playing in the last group and bidding for a hat-trick of wins in this event. He overcame a lost ball at the 11th hole to return a 72 and tie with Hamilton.
Laurie Chancellor (Inverness) took fifth place on 145 with former internationals, George Barrie (Callander) and Ian Brotherston (Dumfries and County) in joint sixth place on 146.
Lindsay Blair had the added consolation of the main handicap prize, just pipping local favourite, Denis McQuade and George Barrie.

South of Scotland 30/31 July at Dumfries and County
The holder, Ronnie Clark (Erskine) retained the South of Scotland Seniors Open title at Dumfries andCounty Golf Club today when he added a score of 70 to produce a fine aggregateof 138 and win by four shots from John Fraser (Royal Burgess).
The ever-consistent David Gardner (Broomieknowe) was third on 143 with Ken Gallacher (East Kilbride) and Ian Brotherston (Dumfries & County) tied fourth on 144.
Playing in the first game, John set the early target as the overnight leaders, Brotherston and Tony Patterson (Sunningdale) faltered. That left an opening for Ronnie which he took with both hands to achieve his third win of the season, a feat which he also achieved last year. At 54 and playing off plus 3, Ronnie will not be eligible to play for the international team until next year but his credentials are already well established.
Ian Logue (Northumberland) won the handicap section with an aggregate of 137 with David Dickson (Lochmaben) second on 140.
Dumfries and County was in superb condition and presented an excellent test for the high quality field. The CSS for the first round was 71 but increased to 72 for day 2 for the par 69 course.
