McLean scores third NE Alliance win of season

with a 69 in wintry weather at Buckpool

Peterhead's Philip McLean scored his third win of the North-east Golfers' Alliance 2017-18 season and his second in a row with a good score of one-under-par 69 in very wintry conditions of snow showers, sleet and high winds at Buckpool Golf Club today.

McLean, pictured, earned £130 by heading a field of 74 by one stroke from playing partner and fellow professional Chris Robb (Meldrum House), thanks to late birdies at the 16th and 17th. Robb earned £100.
Earlier McLean had birdied the ninth and 12th but bogeyed the fifth, sixth and 10th.
"It was a survival day in those conditions," said McLean. "With Chris Robb playing with me, I knew what I had to do to win in the closing stages."
Craibstone amateur Ian Still finished third on 71 and earned a voucher for £70.
Stewart Allison, who plays off six at Bon Accord Golf Club, won the top £60 voucher in Class 1 with a net 72 (better inward half).
Jackie Forrest (Northern) won the top prize in Class 2 by three strokes with a net 70 off 12.
