South of Scotland Open 26th & 27th July

Sunday, 15 July 2018

Stewart Henderson wins South Senior Open by seven strokes with a pair of 66s

Hamilton's Stewart Henderson outclassed the field in the South of Scotland Senior Open over 36 holes at Dumfries and County to win the title by seven shots.
Stewart shot two brilliant rounds of three-under-par 66 for a total of 132. His halves were 37-29 in the first round and 35-31 in the second.
Former shinty star John Fraser (Royal Burgess) was the distant runner-up with scores of 67 (32-35) and 72. A double bogey at the fifth after bogeys at the third and fourth in his second round killed his hopes of staying in touch with Stewart.
Ronnie Clark (Erskine) (71-71) and Malcolm Reid (Sonning) (70-72) finished joint third.

In the Handicap section local player Graeme Sharp (Playing off 4) enjoyed a victory on his home course with a Net total of 135, beating Stewart Henderson by 1. In joint 3rd place were George Rodaks (Pitreavie) and Brian Halbert (Callander) on 138.

In the Super Seniors section, John Fraser won the Scratch with his 139, and George Rodaks  and Brian Halbert shared  the Net with a score of 138.
