Ayrshire finished in seventh place as South Of Scotland won their first Seniors Area Team Championship on Thursday 22nd September at Musselburgh Golf Club.
(Report by Keith Howie)
South of Scotland, led by captain Ian Brotherston, produced an excellent performace to win the Scottish Seniors Golf Society Area Team Championship at a breezy Musselburgh GC on Thursday 22nd September.
Brotherston led from the front with a sparkling 71. Out in 40 his round caught fire on the inward half with a brilliant 31 which included three putts at the final hole.
His team of George Rodaks, Tony Clark, Ian Fraser. Graeme Sharp and Gordon Doig all contributed to a well bonded effort.
Runners up were 2010 champions Glasgow who pipped home team Lothians by virtue of a lower discard score.
Individual performance of the day was a remarkable 69 by Dumbartonshire’s Ian Jeen with a display of excellent control of flight and direction. This would have been even better but for a three putt from 7 feet at the difficult 15th.
