with 39pt at West Kilbride

Montrose Links assistant professional Graeme Brown won the £1,350 PGA Pros' Stableford competition at West Kilbride Golf Club today, writes Colin Farquharson
Brown, who was round in four-under-par 68 (32-36) scored 39 under the Stableford points system of 3 for a birdie, 2 for a par, 1 for a bogey.
He birdied the third,fourth, sixth, seventh and ninth but had bogeys at the eighth and 10th to head the field of 33 players and win the top prize of £300.
Runner-up, beaten by one point, was Graham Fox (Clydeway Golf) whose actual score was a 69 (34-35) with birdies at the third, seventh, 11th and 14th. He bogeyed the 13th and 13th. Fox earned £250.
Four players earned £155 apiece for sharing third place on the 37pt mark, all scoring two-under 70s. They were Michael Patterson (Kilmacolm), Paul O'Hara (Clydeway Golf), Christopher Currie (Caldwell) and Andrew Oldcorn (Kings Acre).
