Scottish senior men's open amateur championship

Anglo Reid and Partridge take lead from Brotherston at Irvine Bogside

By COLIN FARQUHARSON

Anglo-Scott Malcolm Reid (Sonning) and Englishman Richard Partridge (Wildernesse) share the lead on two-over 146, a shot ahead of the first-round pacemaker, Ian Brotherston (Dumfries and County) with one round to play in the Scottish senior men's open amateur championship at Irvine Bogside Golf Club.
Reading-based Reid, picture by courtesy of Steve Ellis,  shaved six shots off his opening score of 76, thanks to an eagle 3 at the second and birdies at the seventh, 11th, 13th and 14th in halves of 37-33. He dropped shots at the first, third, fourth and eighth.
Partridge improved from a Wednesday 75 to a 71. He too had an eagle 3 on hs card, at the 11th. He also birdied the second and eighth, shedding shots to par at the first, ninth and 12th in halves of 37-34.
Brotherston is by no means out of the hunt with rounds of 70 and 77 for 147. But for a double bogey 6 at the 14th in halves of 37-40, the Doonhamer would still have been in the pole position and he will be doing his best to recover it over the final 18 holes.
Players with tallies of 155 and better qualified for the last round
