Kieran Cantley's six-under 65 best scratch

score at West Lothian GC

Secretary, Edinburgh and East of Scotland Alliance
The fifth outing of the season saw 60 members head to West Lothian Golf Club to contest The Ramsay Trophy.
It was a bleak, wet morning first thing but thankfully the weather improved throughout the morning for all to enjoy the well presented course which is home to Alan Reid, the club's professional and president of the East Alliance.
Kieran Cantley (Liberton) continued his consistent form on the par 71 (36,35) course with a six-under-par 65 (33-32) to secure best scratch score of the day.
The silverware eluded him, however, as his net 68 (65 +3) was pipped by the gross 68 (36-32) of Alan Reid, thanks to a better inward nine, to ensure the local pro's name will be on the Ramsay Trophy this year.
Special mention goes to Colin Fraser of Peebles who had an outward nine of 38, which was a bit off the pace, but six birdies in a row at the start of the inward nine put him right in contention. However, a couple of bogeys, at 16 and 18, meant an inward 31 to total 69, which gained him a share of second scratch prize.
