 SuperMac leads by six at Boat of Garten

By GORDON THOMSON;
Gordon MacDonald (Glenbervie) Is the leader after today‚Äôs 

first round of the Scottish Super Seniors Open (for players 

over 65) at  Boat of Garten with an excellent score of 70.



This gives him a six shot lead over the chasing group of Alan McNaught (Colchester), Patrick Tomisson (Nairn), George Rodaks (Pitreavie ) and Keith Bruce (Edzell). The holder, Bill Erskine (Kilsyth Lennox ) is nine shots back on 79.



MacDonald, aged 67, has been in fine form this season and showed his liking for the picturesque Boat of Garten course with his fine score. In winning Senior Matchplay Championship at Stirling in July he showed that he is still good enough to compete at the highest level.



Former Walker Cup player, Scott Macdonald (Dunfermline) who is defending the trophy for players over the age of 70, shot 77 to lead that category but can expect stiff competition tomorrow from David Millar (New Club) and Brian Grieve (King James V1), who are both one shot adrift, and Colin Moir (Worksop) on 79.

The late starters were caught in two heavy showers which affected the scoring, with the CSS rising  to 72 for the par 70 course.
