Maurice Lindsay wins East of Scotland Open

St Andrews was affected badly by Haar on both days of the competition, resulting in delays to start. On Thursday we had to resort to a 2 tee start after a 3 hour delay, and on Friday a 2 hour delay occurred. Many thanks to Archie & Dave and the staff at Fairmont in re-organising starts to allow the competition to proceed.

At the end of the 2 days, Monifieth's Maurice Lindsay emerged the winner with rounds of 73 and 69 for two-under 142.
The winner and the runner-up, Gary Tough (Edzell), beaten by only one stroke, were the only players in the big field to go as low as 69 on the second day. 

Nairn's Robert Smith, joint first-round leader with a 71, looked to have the title sewn up when he reached the turn in a bogey-free 32 shots in his second round but he had a nightmare inward half of 41 for a 73 which dragged him down to third place on 144.

In the handicap section Keith Renton (Lundin) had a narrow one shot victory over Billy Erskine (Kilysth Lennox) and Gary Tough (Edzell) on 149.

The final Scottish Seniors Golf Society Winter Event went ahead at a breezy Prestwick St Cuthbert today.
The course was in excellent condition and the greens cut making them good to putt on.
The breeze made scoring difficult with pars and birdies hard to get.

The result was close with Kevin McCarthur (St Andrews) 37points piping Neish Chisholm (Kemnay), Keith Ross (Glasgow), Alex Hogg (Stirling), Stuart Drysdale (Leven Golf Society) and Donnie Lindsay (Barrassie) all with 36 points.

Kevin’s back 9 score of 20 points being the best of the day clinching him the win, although it may have been better as he had a no score at the 308 yd 10th hole.
