Paul Porteous has best scratch and handicap scores at Longniddry

Despite an overnight deluge of rain, play started on time at Longniddry where 77 members of the Edinburgh and East Alliance competed in the penultimate outing of the season to contest for their name on the T C Jordan Trophy.
There was no need for a countback this week as a one under par 67 saw Longniddry member Paul Porteous achieve the best scratch and best net score on the day. 

Paul's net 63 (67 less 4) earned his name on the trophy by a comfortable three shots from a net 66 by Peter Louden (Glencorse) (74 less 8).
 Third net prize was split two ways on 68 by Tony Boyle (Glenbervie) (71 less 3) and Andy Rothney (Deer Park) (70 less 2).
With Paul Porteous earning the top Handicap Prize, the top Scratch Prize went to Kieran Cantley (Liberton) on 68, which was nearly a 67 following a superb second shot from the dip below the 18th green, his ball ending up on the lip of the hole.

Second Scratch Prize was shared on 69 by Neil Henderson (Renaissance Club) and Marc Owenson (Gullane).
It was lucky 13 again for Deer Park pro Sandy Strachan with an ace at the 13th hole to replicate his efforts at the East Championships  last April at Gullane No.3 where he also secured an ace at the 13th.
Top Trainee was Scott Gillies (Craigmillar Park) on 76.
Top Senior was Ron Grant (Baberton) on net 69 (75 less 6)
The Order of Merits see the Scratch top two unchanged but the top two in Handicap swap places -

1. Duncan Stewart (Turnhouse) - 509.0
2. Craig Gordon (Edinburgh Golf Centre) - 498.0
