Gordon Hillson wins Andrew Oldcorn Trophy with a four-under-par 66 at Royal Musselburgh

Two weeks in a row of good weather and this week 68 members visited Royal Musselburgh which was in fine condition. Up for grabs was the Andrew Oldcorn Trophy at the par 70 (36-34) course.
Winner  of the trophy with the  top scratch score of four-under-par  66 (34-32) was Winterfield pro Gordon Hillson. An impressive round with no dropped shots and two birdies on each half.
Last week's winner, Neil Henderson (Renaissance Club), claimed second scratch prize on 68 and third was shared on 69 by Kieran Cantley (Liberton) and Alan Reid (West Lothian).
Top Handicap Prize was shared on net 67 by Brian Chrystal (Baberto) (80 less 13) and new member Bill Miller( also Baberton 74 less7). Third Prize going to Phil Leggate (Musselburgh) on 68 (75 less 7).
Top Trainee prize on 71 was shared by local assistant Cameron Brown (Royal Musselburgh) and Chris Curran (Bathgate). Cameron's card gets special mention with eight birdies including the last four holes, Unfortunately six bogeys and a triple eroded the birdie blitz but he was still smiling after the round.
Top Senior was shared on net 70 by Alex Logie (Dunbar) (75 less 5) and Willie Miller (Falkirk Tryst) (81 less 11).
