Henderson wins South Senior Open by seven strokes with a pair of 66s


By COLIN FARQUHARSON
Hamilton's Stewart Henderson outclassed the field in the South of Scotland Senior Open over 36 holes at Dumfries and County to win the title by seven shots.
Henderson shot two brilliant rounds of three-under-par 66 for a total of 131. His halves were 37-29 in the first round and 35-31 in the second.
Former shinty star John Fraser (Royal Burgess) was the distant runner-up with scores of 67 (32-35) and 72. A double bogey at the fifth after bogeys at the third and fourth in his second round killed his hopes of staying in touch with Henderson.
Ronnie Clark (Erskine) (71-71) and Malcolm Reid (Sonning) (70-72) finished joint third.
