NE Alliance scores on a wet then very windy day

ROSS CAMERON WINS £140 TOP

PRIZE AT OLDMELDRUM

By COLIN FARQUHARSON
McDonald Ellon Golf Club tour professional Ross Cameron won the £140 top prize by heading a field of 91  with a five-under-par score of 65 at today's (WED) North-east Golfers' Alliance at Oldmeldrum Golf Club.
On a day which started very wet and finished very windy, Cameron, one of the later starters, had one eagle, six birdies and three bogeys in halves of 33 (three under par) and 32 (two under).
"My short game was good. It had to be in as strong a wind as we had in the afternoon," said Cameron who was winning for the second time on this season's Alliance circuit which had its ninth counting fixture today.

His scorecard read:
OUT: 4-5-4  4-3-3  4-3-3: 33
  IN:   4-2-4  4-4-3  5-2-4: 32
Cameron won by three shots from joint runners-up John Duff (Newmachar) and Kamran Zeynalov (Portlethen) with Alliance captain John Borthwick, pictured right, the leading amateur in joint fourth place with pro Sam Kiloh on the 69 mark.

 Young amateur Ben Murray (Portlethen) had a little bit of everything in halves of 34 and 36 for a 70. He had a chip-in eagle 2 at the fifth, birdies at the first, second, eighth and 14th, offset by a double bogey 5 at the short third and bogeys at the seventh, 12th, 17th and 18th.
