Dun­can ties for first at Portlethen

The Press and Journal (North-East) - - CLASSIFIED -

Scot­tish Al­liance cham­pion Kevin Dun­can, Cru­den Bay’s tour pro, and +3 New­machar am­a­teur Gor­don Munro tied for first in a field of 76 play­ers at to­day’s North-east Golfers Al­liance com­pe­ti­tion which was played over a 17hole win­ter course at Portlethen Golf Club.

The fifth was not played be­cause this short hole does not have space for a win­ter green to be es­tab­lished.

Dun­can and Munro both shot 66, three un­der par for the short­ened course. Dun­can earned £115 in cash, Munro a prize voucher for a sim­i­lar amount.

Clyne beaten in Cairo

In­ver­ness squash player Alan Clyne bowed out of the Black Ball Open in Cairo yes­ter­day af­ter los­ing to world num­ber three Si­mon Ros­ner.

Clyne tested him in the open­ing game, but Ros­ner nicked it and went on to com­plete an 11-9, 11-5, 11-7 vic­tory to book his place in the last 16.
