FOR­MER Dal­mally golfer, John Cowan, now of Tay­mouth Castle, drew on his knowl­edge of the Strathorchy course to se­cure his sec­ond Open ti­tle in three years.

His early club­house lead lasted through­out the day with a one over par 65 enough to see off Wyn­d­ham Tran­ter (Raglan Parc) and David Howie (Taynuilt) both of whom shot 67s.

In the hand­i­cap sec­tion, home player, Graeme MacKech­nie, con­firmed his re­cent re­turn to top form with a sparkling 61 to win by two from fel­low Dal­mally man, Jim Liv­ing­stone. A bet­ter in­ward half by new­comer to the Open, Graeme Gavin of Nid­dry Castle, al­lowed him to see off a host of play­ers on 64 for third place.

Home play­ers had their radar on scoop­ing all four near­est the pin prizes, Jim Liv­ing­stone, Gerry Davies, Shaun Squire and Steven Turner be­ing pin high, while David Graham (Glen­cruit­ten) cracked the long­est drive of the day.
