Preview of Central Scotland Seniors Open 

at Glenbervie on Thursday-Friday

The Scottish Seniors Golfing Society circuit moves to Glenbervie on Thursday and Friday for the Central Scotland Seniors Open, sponsored by McCrea Financial Services.

Ronnie Clark (Erskine) has won this event in the last two years and is bidding for a hat-trick of wins on a course which clearly suits his game.
There is a full field of 140 for the event with a good mix of ages and handicaps and all are looking forward to the challenge of playing one of the finest inland courses in  Scotland. With the international team selections looming, July is an important month for the over 55’s to advance their claims with the Matchplay Championship and the South of Scotland Seniors Open also taking place.

Following his tie for first place at Cardross, Keith Reilly (Silverknowes) leads the Order of Merit, followed by Paul Moultrie (Royal Troon), the ever consistent David Gardner (Broomieknowe) and Lindsay Blair (Grangemouth).

Bob Stewart (Tulliallan) lies fifth in the main Order of Merit and now leads the Handicap Order of Merit with Keith Reilly lying in second place, reflecting just how well some of the lower handicap players have been performing.

Competition is also hotting up in the Super Seniors (over 65) Order of Merit race with Colin Halcrow (Windyhill) in front with Tom Sirel (Largs ) and Ken Thomson (Bramall Park ) in close pursuit.
