Edinburgh and East of Scotland Alliance report

Craig Godon pips Andrew Oldcorn with a 64 (-5)

The East Alliance remained on the West side of Edinburgh for its third outing of the season with a visit to Ratho Park Golf Club where 99 members tried to get their name on The Andrew Oldcorn Trophy. 
Andrew who has a long term connection with Ratho Park,lmost got his name on his own trophy again with a great 4 under par score of 65 on the par 69 course but a net score of 65 from Kingsknowe's Paul Bradbury (69 less 4) did have the better inward nine to nearly claim the silverware. 
However, it was another Ratho Park connection from his amateur days who will get his name on the trophy, thanks to the fantastic 5 under par score of 64 by Craig Gordon of Edinburgh Golf Centre.
Top Scratch prize also goes to Craig Gordon (Edinburgh Golf Centre) on 64, with Andrew Oldcorn (Kings Acre) taking second scratch on 65 with third scratch shared on 67 by Malcolm Pennycott (Royal Burgess) and Alan Reid (West Lothian).
Top Handicap prize goes to Paul Bradbury (Kingsknowe) on 65 (69 less 4) which is a nice way for him to finish off his East Alliance season just prior to his forthcoming move to Australia. Second handicap goes to John Masterton (Mortonhall) on 67 (76 less 9) and third shared 3 ways on 68 via Robert Pelling (Archerfield Links) (80 less 12), Brian Reid (Dunbar) (73 less 5) and Tommy Wilson (Glenbervie) (70 less 2).
Top Trainee on 68 is Cameron Adam (Harburn).
Top Senior on 70 is Brian Chrystal (Baberton) (82 less 12).
The Scratch and Handicap Order of Merits are now taking shape with Marc Owenson at top of scratch and John Masterton top of handicap.

1. Marc Owenson (Gullane) - 162.5
2. Neil Henderson (Renaissance Club) - 159.5
3. Ross Munro (Duddingston) - 159.0

1. John Masterton (Mortonhall) - 47.5
