Angus pipped Perth & Kinross to win the Senior Area Team championship at Forfar today. Heavy rain yesterday meant that the course was playing long and preferred lies were in operation. The format is a six man team with the best five gross scores counting towards the team total. In the event of a tie, as happened today, the sixth score is used to determine a winner.
Both teams had excellent scores and at the end of the day Jim Watt's 75 clinched victory for Angus, with Perth & Kinross' non-counting score being a 78 from Craig Hay.
