It is a Tartan Tour record?

Seven tie for victory at McDonald Ellon pro-am

It might well be a Tartan Tour record - SEVEN players tied for first place on two-under-par 68 in today's McDonald Ellon Golf Club pro-am. 
Greg McBain (Newmachar), Ross Cameron (Saltire Energy), Marr Kerr (Marriott Dalmahoy), David Stein (Ranfurly Castle), Christopher Currie (Caldwell), Paul Robinson (Largs) and Scott Henderson (Kings Links) figured in the mammoth logjam at the top of the leaderboard.
Each earned £628.30.
Tournament controller Roy Murray seems to recall there was a multiple tie for first place a few years back at Lochwinnoch but he cannot be sure as to how many figured in it.
By a curious coincidence five of the players had halves of 36 out and 32 in. Only Currie (37-31) and Henderson (35-33) differed.
Cameron and Henderson bogeyed the last hole in contrast to McBain who birdied 13, 16 and 17 in setting the clubhouse target of 68.
Sam Binning (Mearns Castle), who had an individual score of 71, led the winning pro-am team representing CGC Engineering - Calum Cordiner (handicap 12), Gordon Rae (17) and Sany Murray (18). They had a net best ball team total of 18 under par 122.
