Munro, Craig Lawrie and Robb joint winners on 64 at Fraserburgh

Newmachar +3 handicap amateur Gordon Munro and professionals Craig Lawrie (Paul Lawrie Golf Centre) and Chris Robb (Meldrum House) made the most of almost perfect golfing conditions to return six-under-par 64s and figure in a three-way tie  at the head of a field of 95 competitors at today's North-east Golfers' Alliance at Fraserburgh.

Lawrie and Robb earned £130 each in cash, Munro a voucher to the same value. They finished three strokes ahead of a trio on 67 - John Duff (Newmachar), Phil McLean (Peterhead) and Joel Hopwood (Royal Aberdeen) who earned £47 apiece.
Munro, pictured, had the best outward half of five-under-par 30, despite starting with a bogey. He went on to have an eagle 3 at the sixth and birdies at the third, fourth, seventh and ninth. The 10th would eventually rob Munro of outright victory. It cost him a double bogey 6 and birdies at the 13th, 14th and 18th in an inward 34 could not repair the damage.
Craig Lawrie had bogey-free halves of 31 and 33 with birdies at the fourth, sixth, seventh, ninth, 13th and 15th.
Robb, like Munro, bogeyed the first but he had an eagle 2 at the third and birdies at the eighth, 13th, 15th, 16th and 18th in halves of 33 and 31.
It was Craig Lawrie's fourth win of the Alliance season and Robb's second.
In all 13 players got under the par of 70 for the shortened winter course.
Robbie Duncan (Deeside) had the best net score of 63 off a handicap of 12. He won Class 2 by two shots.
