Defending champion, Alan Doig was a surprise casualty in the first round of the Links Championship beaten at the 19th hole by Peter Coutts of the Bon Accord.  There was little to separate the two players until Coutts took a one lead with a par on seventeen.  However, Doig held his nerve and a par on the last took the match to extra holes.  Coutts was not going to be denied and a 10-foot birdie putt on the 19th ensured his passage into the next round.

Past champions Ron Evett (top seed), Barrie Edmond, Stewart Finnie and Matty Greig all progressed comfortably into the quarter finals.
