McBain and Currie both shot six-under-par 64s, finishing two shots ahead of the field.
Greg, who represents Aberdeen golf store Gamola Golf on the Tartan Tour, posted his score with a superlative run of seven under par for his last 14 holes, during which he birdied the fifth, long sixth, short 10th, 11th, 12th, 14th and 15th.
Earlier he had bogeyed the second.
Currie proved that he too could be hot stuff when he returned a bogey-free cad with birdies at the short fourth, long sixth, short 10th, long 14th, 17th and 18th.
The team award went down to a card countback between two teams who both returns net 55s - Craig Matheson (Falkirk Tryst) team and that led by Montrose Links tour pro Graeme Brown.
