A dramatic day’s golf at Nairn Dunbar in the Scottish Seniors Autumn Meeting (sponsored by McCrea Financial Services) resulted in a four way tie on 148 involving Maurice Lindsay (Broughty), Stewart Finnie (Royal Aberdeen), Lindsay Gordon (Turnhouse ) and Robert Smith (Nairn).
Joint overnight leader, Grant McNab (Lundin) was one shot behind on 149 with new senior international cap, Nick Robson (Meldrum House) in sixth place on 150. David Logie (Craigie Hill) finished in a group of five on 151, aided by a hole in one at the eighth hole.
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.
