Jim Gordon wins again to claim Berwickshire Trophy at windswept Craigielaw

REPORT FROM ALAN GREENSHIELDS
A testing day for 75 East Alliance members who braved a windswept Craigielaw today prior to the arrival of Storm Doris.
While blue skies and sunshine were abundant, the high winds tested the field's golfing skills and ability to stand upright. However, the event was concluded and required a countback on the inward nine to decide the winner of The Berwickshire Trophy.
A fine scratch score of 73 on the par 71 course suggested Gullane's Keir McNicoll would see his name on the silverware but it was two trophies in a row following his win two weeks ago at The Glen for Royal Burgess player Jim Gordon with a net 73 (85 less 12) and better inward nine of 36 against Keir's 37 to claim The Berwickshire Trophy this season.
Keir however easily claimed the top scratch prize by four shots from Steven Dunsmore (Falkirk Tryst) on 77 with third prize going to Colin Fraser (Peebles) on 78.
Jim Gordon having claimed top Handicap Prize was followed by Graeme Johnston with second prize on net 75 (79 less 4) and third prize heading to Ron Grant (Baberton) on net 76 (82 less 6).
Top Senior was George Wither (Duddingston) on 79 (82 less 3).
Trainee Prize was split between James Dick (Duddingston) and home player Scott Gillies (Craigielaw) both on 81.
Both Order of Merits see Keiran Cantley of Liberton remain firmly in control -

1. Kieran Cantley (Liberton) - 543.0
