0508Scottish Fox

Graham Fox chalked up his fourth outright win on the Tartan Tour this season with a six-under-par 64 at the McDonald Ellon Golf Club pro-am.

Fox, now playing out of Clydeway Golf, picked up the first prize of £1,158 to boost his season's tournament earnings to £13,865.

He had a bogey-free round on his way to victory, studded with birdies at the first, second, long fourth, 10th, 13th and 14th.

Runner-up Robert Arnott (Bishopbriggs) had an eagle at the 10th in losing out by two shots with a 66. He birdied the fourth, fifth, 13th and 15th but the ultimate difference between him and the winner were bogeys at the sixth and 17th. He earned £926.

Third on 67 was James McGhee (unattached). Like Fox, he had no bogeys as he birdied the long fourth 13th and 17th for a £695 payslip.

Ellon-born pro Ross Cameron (Saltire Energy), who finished joint fourth individual on 68, led the Moir's Maestros amateur trio of Bill Moir (handicap 10). John Howland (11) and Jim O'Brien (9) to victory in the team event with a net better ball of 17-under-par 123.
