LAMB (69), DUFF (70) MAKE IT A NEWMACHAR 1-2

IN NE ALLIANCE AT ROYAL TARLAIR
It was a Newmachar Golf Club 1-2 finish at the head of a field of 76 players for the North-east Golfers' Alliance competition at Royal Tarlair Golf Club today (WED).
Outstanding amateur prospect Chris Lamb, pictured, joint winner at Peterhead last week, stepped into the spotlight on his own with a two-under-par round of 69 - a stroke ahead of Newmachar tour professional John Duff.
Lamb had birdies at the first, eighth, ninth and 16th, offset by bogeys at the fifth and sixth in halves of 35 and 34.
Duff, chasing a seventh win, needed a birdie at the last to finish ahead of his young rival or a par to match Lamb's 69. Instead Duff bogeyed it.
John had earlier birdied the fifth, eighth, 15th and 16th. His other bogeys came at the second and ninth in halves of 36 and 34.
Perhaps indicative of the weather conditions worsening as the day wore on (there were 14 No returns), Lamb and Duff finished well clear of the field.
Third placed Ross McConnachie (Peterculter) had a 74 (36-38) in which he bogeyed the 16th, 17th and 18th.
