Henderson and Taylor share lead at Seniors' Spring meeting at windy Powfoot

The Scottish Seniors Golfing Society season got under way with the first
round of the 36-hole spring meeting attracting a field of 126 to Powfoot Golf Club on the Solway Firth.

Conditions were very difficult with a strong wind and a couple of heavy showers leading to  high scoring.
The best rounds of the day were a couple of three-over-par 74s from Stewart
Henderson (Hamilton), the 2017 Order of Merit winner, and David Taylor
(St Andrews New). 

Henderson birdied the seventh but bogeyed the third, 10th, 14th and 18th.
Taylor had a very steady round of 15 pars and three bogeys: at the third, 16th and 18th. 
At the halfway stage, they jointly lead by one shot from a group of four
players who scored 74 - Gary Tough (Edzell), Gordon MacDonald
(Glenbervie), Jalil Aman (Grangemouth) and Jim Devaney (Clydebank and
Taylor, playing off three, also leads the handicap event with a net 71. Jim Devaney (Clydebank and District) is second with a net 72, and there are five players on 73.
