Bryan Fotheringham scored his third win on the North Scottish Golfers Alliance 2013-2014 circuit at Kinloss at the weekend.
The Inverness amateur carded a five-under-par 63 to prevail by one stroke over Nairn Dunbar professional Gavin Hay.
Fotheringham, a former Scotland international and winner of the leading amateur award at the Scottish Alliance championship in Ocober, clinched his latest win with birdies at the 13th and 16th, having started at the 10th, and then added further birdies at the fifth, sixth and eighth to come home in three-under-par 30 in a bogey-free card.
Runner-up Hay, who also started at the 10th, covered his first nine holes with six 3s before dropping a shot at the 16th.
Another bogey came at the short fifth before he carded an eagle 2 at the eighth for his four-under 64 (32-32), one shot behind the winner.
