Iain Wilson caps fantastic week by winning at Duddingston

Have your say

Longniddry’s Iain Wilson is finishing the East Alliance campaign with a flourish.

A week after winning at Broomieknowe, the East Lothian amateur also came out on top at Duddingston.

Despite frost overnight, the event went ahead as scheduled, with 94 members competing for the Alliance Trophy.

It was claimed by Wilson with a net 66 after the three-handicapper went round the Capital course in a splendid three-under 69 scratch.

He finished two clear of Deer Park’s John Kerr (5) and Peter Louden, a ten-handicapper. Top scratch prize was shared on 71 by trainees Gordon Hilson (Dunbar) and Cameron Marr (Musselburgh).

The normal trainee prize went to Duddingston’s Ross Munro on 72, while Willie Marr (West Lothian) won the senior spoils.

The Handicap Order of Merit was decided in the event and Martin Rennie (Uphall) held on to his lead from James Silvestro (Musselburgh) in second with Wilson finishing third.

Drumpellier’s Ross Neill still leads the scratch standings heading into the East Alliance Championships at Gullane in a fortnight’s time.
