Order of merit latest
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.
