Golf: Law and Reid inseparable in battle for Pitreavie Trophy

TWO former national champions shared the spoils in the Edinburgh & East of Scotland Alliance event over the West Course at Dalmahoy.

Uphall pro Gordon Law, the 2003 Scottish PGA champion, and West Lothian counterpart Alan Reid, who won the Scottish Boys in 1992, both carded 64s. As the pair couldn't be separated in a card play-off, they will share the Pitreavie Trophy.

Their gross score also beat the best handicap effort of 65, returned by Stuart Brown of Glencorse and Prestonfield's William Laing. Kingsknowe pro Chris Morris reclaimed pole position in the scratch order of merit as he stormed home in 29 to finish two shots behind Law and Reid. Morris now has 284 points and leads from Scott Grieve of Turnhouse on 265.
