Alex McDonald wins Carnegie Shield for first time

In the all home club final of the Carnegie Shield at Royal Dornoch Alex MacDonald after defeat in his previous final appearance of 2006 won his first Carnegie with a resounding victory of 6 and 5 in the final over the defending champion Chris Mailley.
MacDonald,  after a semi final battle which lasted over four hours, eventually beat American Andrew Biggadike in the semi final at the 20th then played the much better golf in the final and was five up on Mailley after nine holes. Mailley,three down after nine in his semi final tie against Ian Fraser (Dumfries & County) sprang to life on the inward nine and won his way into his second final by 3 and 2.
But the title-holder was all over the course in the final before conceding to MacDonald's straighter play after just thirteen holes.

Full report to follow.
