Sean Lawrie wins NE Alliance at windy Aboyne with a six-under 62

By COLIN FARQUHARSON
Paul Lawrie's nephew, Sean Lawrie (Paul Lawrie Golf Centre), playing brilliantly in windy conditions, was only one stroke above the Aboyne course record in winning today's  North-east Golfers' Alliance with a six-under-par round of 62.
"I drove it well and I putted well - only 27 putts," said Lawrie who was playing his last round of the Alliance season.
"I am going back to a job in the oil industry for the next six months so I got this low score just in time."
Lawrie, who earned £140, had seven birdies in halves of 30 (four under par) and 32 (two under) in heading a field of 88 by four strokes. Even a card as low as 62 included one bogey … at the 15th where Sean missed a 6ft putt.
Runner-up was Sam Kiloh (Portlethen) with a two-under 66 (33-33) which included four birdies and two bogeys. He earned £110.
Sean Lawrie and Kiloh were the only players to get under the par of 68 on a day when there were 14 No Returns (16 % of the field).
