Conditions at Dunaverty Golf Club last Saturday were perfect for the battle to capture the gents’ Centenary Trophy.

Thirty-five players took to a course fantastically presented by greenkeepers Jonathan Barbour and Campbell MacBrayne and, for the first time in a while, there was no wind to speak of.

The trend of setting the pace early in the day continued with Lee Mathieson, in the first group of the morning, returning a superb scratch score of 67 and Alex Souden, in the second group – with his best score of the season to date – shooting a nett 59 to take the trophy.

Several players came close to the lead score throughout the day but none could catch the Southend lad who won his first trophy since returning to the club.

‘Well played Alex,’ said a club spokesperson.

‘Thanks to Rona Burton at The Tea Box for catering for all players.’

Result: 1 Alex Souden 71-12=59, 2 James Finlay 79-19=60 (bih), 3 Hamish Kelly 76-16=60 (best last six), 4 Don Hardman 71-11=60 (best 17th hole), 5 Harry MacLean 68-8=60, 6 Iain MacIntyre 86-23=63 (bih).
