Hutch and McBain tie


1208Scottish Hutcheon

North-east professionals dominated the leading placings in the S and D Harper Calor Gas shotgun pro-am at Elgin Golf Club.

Banchory's Greig Hutcheon and Aberdeen's Greg McBain tied for first place on four-under-par 65 and Scott Henderson (Kings Links) finished fourth on 68.

Separating them was David Orr (Mearns Castle) in third place with a 67.

It was Hutcheon's ninth win of the season and boosts his top-of-the-money table earnings on the Tartan Tour to £29,973 this year.

McBain, who also shared the top spot in Thursday's Downfield Pro-Am, now has six wins to his credit in 2013. His Tartan Tour earnings in 2013 amount to £16,871.

Orr led the sponsors' No 4 team - Loftus Lock (handicap 15), Tommy Mann (18) and Sandy Adam (9) - to victory in the pro-am with a 12-under-par net score of 57.

There were six teams in all on the 57 mark and Orr's team won with the best last nine holes.
