Bell and Paton share seniors' lead on 70 at Downfield

Graham Bell (Downfield) and Derek Paton (Dunnikier Park) set the pace with two-under-par rounds of 70  at the head of a field of over 100 for the two-day autumn meeting of the Scottish Seniors Golf Society at Downfield Golf Club, Dundee.
For Bell it was the proverbial "game of two halves." He bogeyed the first, second and third holes, reaching the turn in three-over 38. But hit form with birdies at the 10th, 11th, 13th, 14th and 16th for 32 home.
Paton also found the inward half easier than the outward holes. He bogeyed the third but parred to the turn in 36. Then he birdied the 11th, 14th and 17th in 34 home.
The leading North-east players were Albert Smith (Duff House Royal) and Andrew Campbell (Murcar Links), both on the 76 mark.
