Spearheaded by local member John Duff, amateurs filled the top three places in today's North-east Golfers Alliance fixture over Newmachar Golf Club's Swailend course.
Duff, who has a +1 rating, headed the field of 75 to win a £100 voucher with a gross, one-under-par 71, very good scoring over a sodden course. He varied from par on only three occasions - birdies at the second and 14th and a solitary bogey at the very last hole in halves of 35 and 36.

LATE NEWS: John later disqualified himself for having signed for a lesser figure at one hole than he actually took. The mistake meant he had scored 72 not 71.
McDonald Ellon's +2 player, Kevin Duncan, who had appeared to finish one shot behind Duff on 72 was then declared the winner and awarded the £100 first prize voucher.

Duncan had adventurous round which saw him run up a quadruple bogey 7 at the short fifth but compensate with birdiess at the third, ninth, 11th, 14th and 18th in halves of 39 and three-under 33.
Chris Lamb (Newmachar), after clubmate Duff's disqualification, moved up to second place behind Duncan with a 73. He will be looking back ruefully on a bogey-bogey finish.
Joel Hopwood (Royal Aberdeen), just back from a week in Tunisia, was the leading professional in joint third place on 74 with four-handicap Newburgh amateur Jim Duncan.
