Ayrshire Seniors Champion
Alex MacNeil

Alex MacNeil (Rowallan Castle) is the 2017 Ayrshire Seniors Champion, following a single stroke victory at a sunny Ayr Seafield course on Tuesday 18th July.

In perfect, sunny, weather, 19 handicapper MacNeil was round in 81 shots for a nett score of 62, six under par, which gave him victory over Charles McMurtrie (Troon Welbeck) in the chase for the Sandy Provan Trophy.

One handicapper Henry Thompson (Irvine) returned the best scratch score of the day with a three over par 71, by virtue of the best inward half over Allan Coulter (Ayr Belleisle), though Coulter had the consolation of taking a nett prize in his age category.

Keith Ross (Beith) won the 55 – 62 age category with a nett 66, whilst McMurtrie’s 63 took the 63 – 69 age category first prize.

Jim Smith (Prestwick St Cuthbert) won the 70+ age category with a nett 66.

There were also a couple of nearest the hole prizes this year, at the third where Andrew McAllister (Annanhill) hit his tee shot to 16 inches, and at the fifteenth where Gary Cochran (Irvine Ravenspark), who was out in the second game of the day, was closest with 9 feet 7 1/2 inches.

Also included this year was a two’s event, and three players received prizes of golf balls for recording a two on their cards. Derek Gemmell (Ayr Dalmilling) was successful at the sixth, the winner Alex MacNeil (Rowallan Castle) had a two at the sixteenth, whilst Andrew McAllister (Annanhill) followed his nearest the pin effort at the third by holing his sixteen inch putt for a two.

Scott Henderson (l) congratulated by Rowallan Castle official May 2017

Rowallan Castle 36 Hole OOM Challenge

Aberdonian Scott Henderson, Kings Links Golf Centre’s long-serving tour pro, scored his first Order of Merit tournament win for quite some time in a tight finish to the Rowallan Castle 36-hole OOM Challenge.

 
Henderson, 47, European Tour Rookie of the Year in 1997, the year after he won the Northern Open in a gale at Cruden Bay, had five birdies (short fifth, seventh, short eighth, long 13th  and 14th, offset by two bogeys (fourth and 11th) in halves of 33 (two under) and 35 (one under) for a three-under-par 68 to add to his opening 70.

 
His four-under-par total of 138 won him the £1,200 first prize by one shot from Steven O’Hara (North Lanarkshire Leisure) who had the round of the day, a five-under-par 66, which could not quite make up the  leeway after a first-round 73.
O’Hara had an eagle 3 at the par-5 third and five birdies in halves of 32 and 34.
His third bogey of the day came at the 18th which cost him a play-off against Henderson. Steven had to settle for the £900 runner-up prize.

 
Sam Binning (Mearns Castle Golf Academy) earned £700 for third place on 140 (71-69). He parred the last six holes after birdies at the third, fourth, 10th and 12th in halves of 35-34.

 
Overnight co-leaders Paul McKechnie and Gareth Wright failed to break par at the final attempt. Wright, with only one birdie on his card, had a 72 for 142 and a share of fourth place for a £332.50 payslip.

 
McKechnie had five birdies but also a triple bogey 7 at the 11th and double bogey 5s at two short holes, the second and the eighth in scoring a 73 for 141 and a share of eighth place for a £200 reward. Rowallan would like to thank all of the PGA staff, The Glasshouse Restaurant and Robert and his team for their hard work on the lead up to and during the event.
