Paul Lawrie made it two wins from two outings on the North-east Alliance circuit this season with a four-under-par 67 to win the first scratch prize of £150 at Peterculter Golf Club.

It was a Lawrie one - two at the head of a field of 100 on a bright, sunny day when the start was delayed one hour owing to frost.

Craig Lawrie, Paul’s elder son, filled second place, one shot behind his dad on 68, despite a double bogey seven at one hole.

Local member Tony Robertson, a reinstated amateur finished third with a 69, highlighted by an eagle two at the 395yd par-four fourth hole.

Paul Lawrie, who cut his competitive teeth on the NE Alliance circuit as an assistant pro at Banchory, had six birdies - the fifth, sixth, seventh, 12th, 14th and 17th in halves of 33 (three under) and 34 (one under).

His two bogeys came over the closing holes, at the 13th and 16th.

Craig Lawrie made up for his 7 at the seventh with birdies at the sixth, ninth, 12th, 16th and 17th in halves of 36 (level par) and 32 (three under). He earned £120.
