Golf: MacDonald wins Bogey prize at Rothesay

ALLAN MacDONALD posted a late net score of 57 to win the Cyclops Bogey competition at Rothesay Golf Club this week.

The competition format sees competitors play against the course, going one up with a birdie and one down after a bogey - and with previous years suggesting that a scoure of four-up might be close to a winning total, when Hughie Charker returned a score of eight up he looked a certain winner.

Allan, though, had other ideas, coming in late on with a score of nine up from his gross 70 to secure the top prize.

Meanwhile, Malcolm Brown won the postponed Guy Speirs Qualifier on Sunday, posting a net 65 to finish one clear of runner-up Tommy Reynolds.

The top eight players qualify for the knockout stages, with the draw as follows: Malcolm Brown v Willie Glen, Tommy Reynolds v Tommy Kilpatrick, Kenny Thomson v Graham McArthur and Jim Crawford v Stuart Strathie. First round ties are to be played by Sunday, August 19.
