Sandy Davidson (Northern) has his first ever hole in one



PAUL LAWRIE, KEVIN DUNCAN TIE FOR

FIRST PLACE AT NEWBURGH on YTHAN
                                       By COLIN FARQUHARSON
Paul Lawrie made it three North-east Alliance scratch victories in the past five
competitions when his seven-under-par round of 57 over the Newburgh-on-Ythan winter course tied him for the top spot with fellow professional Kevin Duncan (Paul Lawrie Golf Club) at the head of a field of 84 on a bright, frost-free day at the Aberdeenshire coastal venue today (WED).
Lawrie, pictured left, attached to the Carnegie Club, Skibo Castle, had a bogey-free round highlighted by seven birdies. He had nine consecutive 3s on the inward half, five of them birdies,in halves of 30 (two under par) and 27 (five under).
Quite a few of the par-4 holes on the winter course are short enough to be reached with a driver and Duncan had eagle 2s at the fourth and 17th and a bag of six birdies in halves of 30 and 27.
Kevin, pictured right, finished with three 2s - eagle-birdie-birdie! He also birdied the 15th so his finish was birdie-eagle-birdie-birdie. Some scoring.
Lawrie and Duncan each earned £125.
Amateurs filled third and fourth places with Christopher Lamb (Newmachar) third on 61 (32-39), despite bogeys at the first and ninth, and Andrew Campbell fourth on 63 (31-32) after starting bogey-bogey.
Short course though it was - only 4,214yd long with eight par-3s, you still had to get the ball in hole ... it took as fine a player as Greig Hutcheon seven strokes to get the ball in the hole at the par-4 ninth (the longest hole on the winter course at 415yd)!
Sandy Davidson (Northern) had his first-ever hole in one with an eight-iron at the 136yd fifth  hole. He finished with a 72.
Next Wednesday's NE Alliance competition is at Portlethen GC
