GORDON MUNRO WINS NE ALLIANCE 

AT INVERALLOCHY WITH A 59!

By COLIN FARQUHARSON
Newmachar amateur Gordon Munro more than lived up to his +3 rating by returning a bogey-free, five-under-par 59 over the Inverallochy Golf Club winter course to win the top prize of a £150 voucher at today's (WED) North-east Golfers' Alliance fixture, the first of 2018.
Munro, pictured, headed a field of 85, pipping Newmachar pro John Duff whose round of 60 included a hole in one with a seven-iron at the 145yd second hole. It was Duff's fifth career ace.
Munro's scorecard included one 2 (at the fifth) and 11 3s in halves of 30 (three under) and 29 (two under).
Duff, who earned £120, bogeyed the sixth and eighth but still had a chance of breaking 60 until he bogeyed the 18th for halves of 30 both ways. 
In all, five players got under the par of 64 - David Law and Philip McLean were joint third on 61 and Laura Murray had a 62.
As organiser Michael MacDougall commented: "OK, so it was a shorter course than usual but any scores under par deserve praise."
+Munro's 59 is not an NE Alliance record low - but, at the moment, I cannot lay my hands on the relevant file. If you can remember who scored lower than 59, probably also at Inverallochy a few years back, send me the info at Colin@scottishgolfview.com
