KEVIN DUNCAN STRIKES AGAIN ON NE

ALLIANCE CIRCUIT

By COLIN FARQUHARSON
There's no stopping Cruden Bay tour pro Kevin Duncan on the North-east Alliance circuit.
He headed a field of 86 players by four strokes at Fraserburgh Golf Club today (WED) with an excellent round of six-under-par 64 which included nine birdies in halves of 32.
He also had a double bogey 6 at the 13th.
Duncan, pictured, put his latest success - his sixth of the season including his Scottish Alliance triumph at Boat of Garten - down to very good short-iron play.
He won the £140 top scratch prize by four strokes from four players on the 68 mark: Kris Nicol (Dunes GC), Paul Lawrie (Gleneagles Hotel), John Duff (Newmachar) and Ben Murray (Portlethen).
In all, five players got under the par of 70 with Kamran Zeynalov (Portlethen) notching a 69 to claim fifth place.
It was Lawrie's first competitive round for several months due to injury and he will be encouraged by the fact that he had birdie chances at almost every hole, apart from the par-5 15th where he had a double bogey 7 after losing a ball.
Murray earned joint second place, with the aid of an eagle 2 at the 13th
The early starters faced persistent rain and cold temperatures for most of the round although the wind was relatively light for most of the day.
The later started enjoyed some respite from the rain with some glimpses of sunshine.
There was universal praise for the condition of the course.
