Inverness v Murcar Links in Senior Northern Counties Cup Final at Cruden Bay

Royal Dornoch 2 progressed  to the semi-finals of the Senior Northern Counties Cup at Cruden Bay  with another good win over Nairn Dunbar 1. The match went to the last hole, and every other match also went down to the wire to decide the outcome.
Royal Aberdeen 1 against Duff House Royal 1 was a hard fought match and although Duncan Clark and Alan Kennedy of Duff House Royal 1 were 3 under par at one point and finished 2 up it was not enough to overcome the first pairing of Royal Aberdeen 1 of James Christie and John Johnstone who finished 4 up.

Inverness came out on top of their semi-final with a 3 hole win over Royal Dornoch 2 whilst in the other game Royal Aberdeen looked as if they were going to be the runaway winners with a combined total of 7 up at the half way stage against Murcar Links with Jim Christie and John Johnston 4 up, Ian Morrison and Nigel Smith 3 up.
With only 5 holes to go the Murcar Links first pairing of Mike Lornie and Alistair Fiddes were just one better at 3 down but fought back to get the game even after 18 holes.
The other Murcar pairing of Brian Holbrook and Derek Allan also fought back to be 1 up going down the last but did not get up and down from the back to the green making the game all square. Murcar’s first pair won the 19th with a par and the second pairing halved the hole in 5 giving them victory at the 19th.
