Danny Kay wins Professional's Trophy at East Alliance fixture with a six-under 65

It was back to East Lothian for 70 East Alliance Members to try and get their name on The Professional's Trophy and claim one of the prizes up for grabs.

Once again the weather behaved and was much better than forecast, which resulted in some fine scoring on the well prepared par 71 (36,35) course.
Danny Kay of Renaissance Club, a new member this season, claimed the trophy and top scratch prize with a fantastic outward nine of 30 including four birdies and an  eagle 3 at the par 5 fourth hole followed by an inward 35 for a 6 under par 65. However, in the same game playing partner Zander Culverwell of Dunbar was close on his heels, finishing with 66 (32,34).
On the handicap front Steve Dand (Archerfield Links) secured top prize with a net 68 and could have been better as his 2 under par score for the outward nine was maintained through to the 15th after which a double bogey at the 16th and a bogey at 17th meant he finished on 72 less 4 for his net 68. Still a great score though.
