Deeside six-handicap golfer Trevor McAllister won the North-east District Senior Championship at the first attempt at Craibstone Golf Club today - and said he owed it all to Paul Lawrie's swing coach, Andrew Locke!
"I had not driven the ball well for ages so I went to see Andrew last week. He adjusted my address position and I've started hitting fairways again, which makes a big difference" said Trevor who was making his debut in the tournament, having reached the seniors' qualifying age of 55 this year.
McAllister, originally from Ballymena, Northern Ireland, had four birdies (first, third, eighth and 15th) in a two-under-par 67, winning by two shots from former Aberdeen Links champion Barry Brooks (Meldrum House) with defending champion Andrew Ironside (Fraserburgh) finishing joint third with Alan Ross (Cullen) on 71.
Scratch champion McAllister also had the lowest net score on the day, a 61 off six but under the rules of the competition he could win only one prize.
The tournament was sponsored for the third year in a row by Marshall Leisure.
