Or­der of merit lat­est

The Galloway News - - READER TRAVEL -

South­er­ness golfer Greig Blayney moved up from tied 54th to 15th in the South of Scot­land Golfers’ As­so­ci­a­tion Or­der of Merit after his win in the Dou­glas Maxwell Tro­phy at Kirkcud­bright on Sun­day.

His two good rounds of 70, 72 and to­tal of 142 won him the tro­phy from Clark Rid­dick (South­er­ness) by seven shots. Clark moved up two places to sixth with his sec­ond place fin­ish. Last year’s win­ner David Brodie (New­ton Ste­wart) con­sol­i­dated his slen­der lead in the Or­der of Merit by tak­ing third place to Michael Grun­well’s (D&G) fourth and now leads Michael by 55 points. It is look­ing like a two-horse race but Chris Cor­bett (D&C) and Kyle McClung (Wig­town­shire County) still have an out­side chance of up­set­ting the odds if they per­form to their po­ten­tial in the next events. Top 10 1 David Brodie (NS) 495 pts; 2 Michael Grun­well (DG) 440; 3 Fraser Hughes (NS) 360;4= Chris Cor­bett (DG) 300 and Kyle McClung (WC) 300; 6 Clark Rid­dick (South) 280; 7 Colin Hamil­ton (Stran) 220; 8 Martin McNae (Loch) 215; 9 Alan Bird­sall (DC) 205; 10 Ross Mur­ray (South) 185.

The next count­ing event is the Len­nox Tro­phy at Lochmaben on Satur­day and then the MacRobert Salver at Stran­raer on Satur­day, September 16.
