GORDON HAY'S FIRST OUTRIGHT WIN ON ON

NORTH ALLIANCE CIRCUIT FOR SIX YEARS


Gordon Hay (Grantown on Spey) scored his first outright victory on the North Scottish Golfers'Alliance circuit in six years when he headed a field of 89 with a four-under-par 66 to win Saturday's fixture at Forres Golf Club.
Hay's five birdies came at the third, fifth, 11th, 12th and 16th. His only bogey was at the seventh.
He won by two strokes from joint runners-up Bryan Fotheringham (Forres) and Graham Murray (Moray) who was a joint winner with Kyle Godsman at Torvean the previous weekend.
Fotheringham birdied the third, fourth, 11th and 16th but dropped shots at the second and 12th.
Murray had six birdies - the best of the day - with gains at the first, second, sixth, ninth, 16th and 18th, but he bogeyed the third, 12th, 14th and 15th.
Mike Lyall (Torvean), after his second consecutive win in Class 2 of the Handicap Section, has seen his handicap cut by three strokes over two weeks. He will play off eight at the next competition.
