Scottish Seniors Order of Merit goes to the wire

The Scottish Seniors Golfing Society Order of Merit title will be decided on Friday (September 15) at Blairgowrie.  The top 30 players in the Order of Merit table after the Autumn meeting play in the final counting event over the Lansdowne course.
After 10 counting events, only three points separate the top two.  Last year’s winner, Graham Bell (Downfield), leads on 793pts with Stewart Henderson (Hamilton) on 790.  Nick Robson (Meldrum House) is in third place on 753.  
Although it will be one of these three players who wins the title, the other players at Blairgowrie can have a say in the final result.  Points are awarded to the top 20 players.  Bell, Henderson and Robson will play together in the last group on Finals day.
The Order of merit is sponsored by McCrea Financial Services Ltd (
Friday's Blairgowrie event is also the last chance for SSGS members to score a hole in one and win an electric golf trolley.  German manufacturer JuCad, donated a top of the range electric trolley as a prize for a hole in scored at any SSGS event in the 2017 season.  
At the moment there are two players whose names will go into the draw for the prize.  Wilson Morton (Dunbar) had a hole in one at the first event of the season, the Spring meeting at Monifieth, and Alan White (Newton Stewart) had a hole in one at the West of Scotland open at West Kilbride.

JuCad trolleys are very popular in Europe , but less well known in the UK.  Auchterlonies of St Andrews recently became an agent for JuCad trolleys.  More information can be found at
