 PAUL LAWRIE, CHRIS GILBERT SHARE

 ALLIANCE HONOURS AT ELLON WITH 67s 
                                        
Paul Lawrie (Gleneagles) and Cruden Bay scratch amateur Chris Gilbert shared the honours at McDonald Golf Club, Ellon today in the last fixture of the 2018-19 North-east Golfers' Alliance season.
Lawrie spent a long time on the injured list during the winter season and, like Gilbert, he was tasting success for the first time in the campaign.
Both shot three-under-par 67s to head a field of 71 members. Lawrie had halves of 35-32, Gilbert 34-33.
But for a bogey 5 at the last hole, Paul would have won outright while Sam Griffiths (Dunes Golf Centre), who finished joint fourth with David Leslie (Bon Accord), Michele Thomson (Meldrum House) and Michael Buchan (Cruden Bay), three shots behind Lawrie and Gilbert, finished 6-5-5: double bogey, bogey, bogey
Professional Ross Cameron, who now plays out of the Ellon club, finished third, only one shot behind the leaders, having covered the last nine holes in 31 shots, the best of the day.
