Edinburgh and East of Scotland Alliance

Neil Henderson's early 65 wins Tom Galloway

Trophy at Liberton

The last pre-championship outing of the Edinburgh and East of Scotland Alliance season saw 74 members visit the Capital to enjoy a round on a well presented course at Liberton to contest The Tom Galloway Trophy.
Early in the day Neil Henderson (Renaissance Club) threw in a 65 (34-31) on the par 67 course (34-33) which, in the end, secured the silverware and top Scratch Prize.
Local favourite Kieran Cantley (Liberton) also had a gross 65 but  his plus 1 handicap meant his net 66 just missed the silverware although he secured the top handicap prize.
Kieran had the bonus of securing the Handicap Order of Merit for the season and he is now holding an unassailable lead in the Scratch Order of Merit despite the double points up for grabs at the end of season Championship in two weeks.
On the Scratch front prize list at Liberton, Chris Curran (Bathgate) continued his recent good form in claiming second prize with a 66 and Jamie McLeary (Dalmahoy) had a 68 to claim third place.
On the Handicap front 2nd prize headed to The Borders via David Brydon (Torwoodlee) on 68 (73 less 5) with Andy Rothney (Deer Park) also maintaining good form collecting 3rd Handicap prize on 69 (70 less 1).

Top Trainee was Duddingston's Ross Munro on 73.

Top Senior prize was shared on 70 by John Fish (Musselburgh) (80 less 10) and Ron Grant (Baberton) (76 less 6).
