Scintillating golf was the order of the day during Stonehaven’s Wednesday Stroke with Ross McAllan leading the way with a 65 (net 60).

He had four birdies on his card, two in each half.

Former club champion Kevin Riddell’s score was a game of two halves.

Playing off a handicap of four, he was out in a six-over 39 which is below his normal high standards.

However he covered the inward half in a blistering 29 shots, made up of four birdies and five pars.

The seniors medal qualifier also had its share of good scoring with Ross Hemphill, who plays off 19, scoring a phenomenal net 56 which was seven shots ahead of his nearest challengers.

In the JM Adamson Greensomes vice-captain Kenny Duncan and his partner Simon Lloyd triumphed by scoring a 60.4, helped greatly by Kenny having a hole in one at the 190-yard 13th hole using a 5-iron.

This magical shot helped beat second-placed Neil Irvine and Harry Roulston by .6 of a shot.

The ladies also had their fair share of good scoring during the week with Fiona Armstrong and Teresa Mckenzie scoring net 63 and 65 in winning Division 1 and 2 respectively. Fiona was also to the fore in winning the Canadian Foursomes with her partner Rose Menzies.
