Wright on! Gareth, out in 29 at Montrose, 

posts  a 65 to win by a shot from Hutcheon

Gareth Wright won his third pro-am of the season at Montrose Links today with a six-under-par 65.

The West Linton Welshman, pictured, followed up his successes at Strathaven and Bothwell Castle by  lifting the £1,250 first prize with a roller-coaster card which saw him bogey the first hole and then birdiedthe second, third, fourth and fifth before notching an eagle 3 at the long sixth, followed by birdies at the seventh and ninth to be out in only 29 shots.
Wright improved even further to nine under par with birdies at the 13th and  15th before bogeying the short 16th and running up a double bogey 6 at the 17th for 36 home. 
After all that, Gareth won by a single shot from Greig Hutcheon (PLGC Inchmarlo) who had a bogey-free 66 (33-33) with birdies at the third, fifth, sixth, 15th and 18th. He earned £1,000.
Sam Binning (Mearns Castle) finished third on 67 for which he received £750.
Wright scored a double whammy by leading the ALS Oil and Gas amateur trio of Barry Lang (handicap 15), Craig Lang (8) and Stuart Phillip (13) to victory in the pro-am team event with a net total of 19-under-par 123.
