Paul Lawrie's grandstand finish for a 68 wins 

him NE Alliance at windy Oldmeldrum

By COLIN FARQUHARSON

Paul Lawrie birdied the 16th and 18th holes to head a field of 100, winning today's North-east Golfers' Alliance competition by one stroke with a two-under-par round of 68 (35-33)at Oldmeldrum Golf Club.
In windy conditions, Lawrie had birdied the first but, after parring his next 12 holes, he went back to level par with a bogey at the 14th. Then came his grandstand finish which won him the £150 first prize.

Paul said later:
"I hit it well from tee to green with only one shot offline all day. That was my tee shot at the 14th. But my putting was awful.I missed nine putts inside 10 feet, so should have been much lower. "The course was in decent conditions for this time of year."
It was Paul's second win of the NE Alliance season. His first was at Montrose on October 26.
Joint runners-up on 69 were Laura Murray (Kippie Lodge) and Murcar Links amateur Andy Campbell
Laura, who played off the same tees as the men, birdied the second, 15th and 18th in halves of 35 and 34.
One-handicapper Campbell's three birdies came before the turn - at the second, fourth and eighth - in halves of 34 and 35.
Greig Hutcheon (Paul Lawrie Golf Centre Inchmarlo) had a rare No Return.

The best outward half of the day was a 32 by professional Craig Dempster (Paul Lawrie Golf Centre). But he required 10 more shots to navigate the inward half, 42 for a 74.
