Loughran wins T C Jordan Trophy on countback at windy Winterfield

Edinburgh and East of Scotland Alliance secretary
The windy conditions  of Storm Caroline threatened to disrupt play at Winterfield on Wednesday but thankfully the field of 73 managed to cope. Some excellent scoring was displayed helped by a well presented course with excellent putting surfaces at the Dunbar par 65 (32-33) course.
Ian Fyfe of Musselburgh, however, did not require his putting skills at the par 3 188yd 11th, thanks to he tee shot finding the bottom of the cup to record his first ace. Well done, Ian.
The T C Jordan Trophy required a countback to establish the name going on the silverware with net 65 being recorded by both David Brydon (Torwoodlee) (71 less 6) and Alan Loughran (Murrayfield) (72 less 7).
Alan's better net inward nine of 31.5 beat the inward net of 33 by David.
Top handicap prize was shared by them. Third prize went to Peter Henderson of Longniddry with net 66 (68 less 2). 
On the Scratch front, Kieran Cantley (Liberton) was the only player under par with a score of 64 (33-31). He was closely followed by Gordon Law (Uphall) on 65 and Lloyd Saltman (Royal Musselburgh) on 66.
Top Senior prize on net 67 was split between John Masterton (Mortonhall) (76 less 9) and Jimmy Rankeillor (Baberton) (80 less 13).
Top Trainee on 71 was Chris Curran (Bathgate).
