 Bryan Fotheringham adds another North Scottish Alliance success at Fortrose and Rosemarkie
 
Bryan Fotheringham (Forres) scored his second outright win of the 2016-17 season and his fourth in all at today's North Scottish Golfers' Alliance fixture at a cold, windy and latterly wet Fortrose and Rosemarkie Golf Club.
He headed a field of 85 competitors with a bogey-free, three-under-par 68 to win by two shots from Gordon Hay (Boat of Garten) with Kyle Godsman (Moray) third on 72.
Hay, a +1 player, won Class 1 of the Handicap Sections, despite adding a stroke on to his gross score!
Fotheringham's three birdies came at the second, eighth and 15th.
Hay birdied the sixth and 13th, dropping one shot with a bogey at the fourth.
Thirty players retired as the wind and rain, allied with the cold, took its toll. There were a further nine no returns.
