Golfers are tied at Spey Bay
MORAY’s Kyle Godsman and Elgin’s head professional Michael McAllan both returned cards of two under par 68 to tie the North Scottish Alliance Fixture at Spey Bay.
Godsman’s return reduced his half way leading aggregate total of 429 by nine strokes to 420 and increase his lead over Elgin’s Alan Duncan.
Godsman’s card at Spey Bay where conditions were tough against an inward half wind was the most consistent in the field.
He recorded a one under par recorded over in each half from two birdies and one bogey in each nine.
McAllan was trailing by two shots on the ninth tee.
But his drive and following three wood found the par five green and the holed eagle putt kick-started his round which finished with two birdies to see him home in 33 and match Godsman.
Four shots back Elgin amateur David Hector settled into third place on his own with a 72 (36/36)
But he went home with the leading low handicap first voucher from a nett 68. Inverness teenager Calum Daun started his 2020 fixture with a triple bogey seven but recovered to post a 74 to tie fourth place with club mate Neil McPhie whose nett card of 70 gave him a share of second handicap place with James Grant from Grantown on Spey.
In the high handicap group, Scott Laing from Grantown on Spey and Jamie Rogers of Boat of Garten were in the leading positions.
The next North Alliance fixture will take place at Fortrose and Rosemarkie Golf Club on Saturday, February 8.
