Paul Lawrie wins with a par 71 at windy

Kittocks, a shot ahead of Peter Whiteford

Paul Lawrie won today's Big Johnson's Tour event today with an excellent par round of 71 in bright but quite breezy conditions at  the Kittocks course, Fairmont St Andrews.
The competition was sponsored by Golf Finance.
 We played off the Championship blue tees which measures over 7,100 yards in over 30 mph winds. For most of us it  proved rather difficult. 
  We had a full field of 24 strong players for this event from European Tour players to PGA assistants. Which was great to see and great to welcome a new faces to the tour, Scott Gillies and Lawrence Allan.
  Massive thanks goes to Daniel Bones and all the team at The Fairmont St.Andrews. The course was in great condition and the hospitality matched it.
"It was very windy but very enjoyable," said Paul Lawrie.
The 1999 Open champion won by one stroke from Peter Whiteford's 72 which was another highly creditable score from a player who held a full European Tour card for six years.
Our next event is at *The Roxburghe, Kelso on Tuesday, May 23. Tee times from 11.20am and entries will be accepted from all professionals, male or female, whatever their category.
The more the merrier!
