Blair and Reilly tie for West of Scotland Seniors Open

In a very tight finish at Cardross today, Lindsay Blair (Grangemouth) tied with 
Keith Reilly (Silverknowes) for the West of Scotland Seniors Open Championship with aggregate scores of 141. 
They finished one shot ahead of defending champion Bob Stewart (Tulliallan), whose round included a hole in one at the 15th, and who tied for third place with the overnight leader, Nick Robson (Meldrum House).

Blair and Reilly were late starters, scoring second rounds of 71 and 70 respectively to complete their fine aggregate totals. Reilly,who  is playing in his first season on the circuit, has made an immediate impact with two wins already, having won the Spring Open at Scotscraig in April.

Blair, who won the Scottish Seniors Championship in 2012, will take great confidence into next week’s championship at Deeside. Bob Stewart,champion in 2008 and the winner of the East Seniors last week, will also fancy his chances at Deeside, having hit form at the right time. Reilly and Robson are,however, ineligible for that event as they are under the age limit  of 55.

Graham Forrest (Northumberland) finished fifth on 144 and Andrew Campbell (Murcar Links) finished on joint sixth with Paul Moultrie (Royal Troon). Mark Laverick (Stocksfield) was the winner In the handicap section.

Scoring on both days was good with perfect weather and the course in fine condition.
