Open article for full report.

SSGS member Graham Bell (Downfield GC) won the Scottish Seniors Men’s Championship at   Royal Burgess by 3 shots with a two under par total of 211.

In round 1, Graham did not get off to the best of starts, hitting  opening tee shot out of bounds and ending up with a double bogey 6.  He then bogeyed the 3rd to go three over par, but being the gritty competitor that he is, covered the next 15 holes in 8 under par to score 66. Graham led by 2 shots after the first round and held his lead throughout the three rounds of the tournament.  The lead was down to one shot with 9 holes to play, but Graham again showed his class by coming home in 2 under par to win by 3 shots.

Robert Smith (Nairn) finished in a tie for 6th place, while Ian Dickson (Gullane) and Tom McLevy (Blairgowrie) tied for 10th spot.

John Fraser (Royal Burgess Golfing Society) won the over 65 award.

Congratulations from all at SSGS.
