Autumn Meeting Nairn Dunbar 25th August

Sunday, 28 August 2016

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.

Full results can be viewed via competitions page, draws and results.

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.

Sunday, 31 July 2016

 

 IAN BROTHERSTON FINISHES 3RD SCANDINAVIAN SENIORS OPEN.

Ian Brotherston, winner of the Scandanavian Seniors Open in 2015, narrowly fails to retain trophy.

Ian finished a gallant 3rd in this year's event. We have no news where fellow SSGS member Keith Bruce finished in the singles although he and Ian also finished 3rd in doubles competition.

Well done to Ian on a gallant defence of singles and to Keith and Ian on their doubles performance.

From the picture below it seems Ian enjoyed better weather than we did at same time in Southerness.
