David Joel leads North Alliance aggregate trophy chase

                                                                                              By ROBIN WILSON

At the mid season break in the North Scottish Alliance fixtures three Inverness Golf Club members are ahead in the bid for the three end of season aggregate trophies, K M Cameron Cup (scratch), Burnett Trophy (low handicap) and Bill McQueen Trophy (high handicap).
Six requisite scores are required to win each trophy and with his winning card of 63 at Garmouth and Kingston, and rarely out of the top five on his five outings, Inverness's David Joel leads the scratch aggregate with 422. His other cards 75 at Grantown, 74 at the Boat, 68 at Inverness 70, at Forres and 72 at Nairn Dunbar. 
Joel's nearest rival is Graham Murray(Moray) who has completed in all seven fixtures and has a best six of 425 while the other four with six scores are Darren Pitchforth (Nairn Dunbar) 440, Robert Stewart (Torvean) 447, Ross Harrower (Boat of Garten)  447, David Grindell (Inverness) 454.
In 2019 six fixtures remain and hoping to build and challenge in these are Jordon Shaw (Boat of Garten) 353 from five fixtures, Inverness's Bruce Thomson 273 (four cards), and Cameron Cup holder Kyle Godsman (Moray) 277 (four cards).  
Neil McPhie (Inverness) has a perfect attendance and with his winning nett 61 at Garmouth his net current aggregate of 422 leads by one from Joel's scratch challenger, Murray who holds an interest in both trophies. The defending Burnett Trophy holder is Bruce Thomson (Inverness) whose net tally after four cards is 276.
The third Inverness trophy hunter is Brian Rennie, also with perfect attendance, and two fixture wins in the high section, Inverness nett 63, and Boat of Garten net 70. His aggregate of 428 is a comfortable lead of 16 shots over Arron Casey  (Moray).
