Oldcorn wins with a 64
at breezy Mortonhall

Secretary, Edinburgh & East of Scotland Alliance.
Eighty-eight members participated in breezy conditions at Mortonhall Golf Club.
Winner of the Paterson Medal, on the better back nine, was Andrew Oldcorn (King's Acre), pictured above, with a four-under-par score of 68.
In the handicap section, in first place was Robert Denholm (Duddingston) 73 - 5 = 68.
John Kerr (Deer Park) kept up his run of recent good form to shoot 73 - 4 = 69 for second spot. Derek Fish (Glenbervie) and Glyn Stevens (King's Acre) were third equal with net 71s and Grant Skinner (Glencorse) was fifth with a net 72.
Colin Rae (Pumpherston) was the top senior with net 72.
John Kerr has won the 'Handicap Order of Merit' with 144.5 pts. In second place was long-time leader Derek Fish with 136.5 pts. Peter Sewell (West Linton) was third with 121 pts.
Andrew Oldcorn's scratch 68 contained four birdies (third, eighth, 13th and 18th) and no dropped shots.
David Patrick (Elie) was second with a 69. David dropped shots at the first and 17th, but birdied the fourth, eigHth, ninth, 12th and 14th. Third equal on 71 were Scott Grieve (Turnhouse), Andrew Marshall (Houston GR) and Michael McAllan (Murrayfield).
Terry Mathieson (King's Acre) was the leading trainee with a 72.
I would like to thank Mortonhall Golf Club for the preparation of the course and looking after us so well in the clubhouse.
The top 60 in the 'Scratch Order of Merit' qualify for next week's Championship (March 18) over Gullane's No 2 and No 3 courses.
If you have qualified, but now can't make it, could you let me know as soon as possible please, so that I can ask one of the reserves to take your place? If a place becomes available, I'll contact the reserves in the order that they appear on the spreadsheet.
I will email a copy of the draw for the championship on Friday evening (March 13).
Please note the fee to play in the Championship is £25 (no discount for Trainees unfortunately).
