Conditions certainly suited Jordon Grant who emerged victorious after the four rounds to be crowned the new Club Champion after being one shot behind the leader from the previous week. Jordan, from Renfrew, scored 69+75+72+69=285 on his way to the title, which included 47 pars and 10 birdies.
Jordon is no stranger to Machrihanish and took up golf as a youngster on the Pans Course during family holidays which makes winning the Championship all the more rewarding.
Tarbert’s Ross Currie was runner up after finishing his campaign with a strong final round of 69, giving him a score of 288.
Greg Watson secured third place with a total of 291 following rounds of 76+74+69+72.
George McMillan, the 2010 Club Champion had an uncharacteristic first two rounds of 77 and 81 which left him 15 shots off the lead going into the final day, and with a mountain to climb to get placed. George started the day with a 70 as he warmed up for a tremendous final round of 65, which was only flawed by a bogey at the 14th. It was enough to into the prizes and take 4th place.
