High winds meant high scores for the players in Dunaverty Golf Club’s Keil Trophy but it was the two oldest playing members who came out on top and showed their younger compatriots that experience counts in adverse conditions.

Sandy Watson, covering the first nine in 36 strokes, shot an excellent 78 scratch for a net 66; Harry Maclean was next up with a net 69 but it was the oldest player in the field who came up trumps.

Hamish Taylor shot a 42 on the outward half and battled against the wind to record 40 on the inward stretch to clinch the title with a net 65. Alistair McConnachie, with a combined total of 37 and 39, had the best gross score of 76. CSS for the day was 65.

Result: 1 Hamish Taylor 82-17=65, 2 Sandy Watson 78-12=66, 3 Harry MacLean 79-10=69, 4 Alistair McConnachie 76-6=70 (bih), 5 Malcolm Ronald 87-17=70, 6 Neil Barlow 97-26=71.
