Wednesday 25th Nov North East Alliance

The alliance was at Newburgh today I played with Craig , Sean and Michael Macdougall. my back was pretty stiff early on but slackened off as I starting swinging and hitting , I shot 66-5 which was the most it could have been as I had a three putt and a four putt in there , as has been the case most weeks for the alliances some of the pins were again today totally stupid especially the first green which was horrendous which is a shame as there's no need. The greens at Newburgh today for this time of year were magnificent and as always I really enjoyed playing it

PLF Winter Series Murcar

We had our second PLF Winter Series event at Murcar Links this morning , we had 13 pros with Greig hutcheon and Greg Mcbain scoring 65-4 then Scott Henderson 67 , Phillip Mclean 68 and Terry Mathieson picking up last cheque with 70 , the course as always was superb big thanks to everyone at murcar for hospitality

PLGC North East alliance at Oldmeldrum

I walker round Oldmeldrum yesterday with Craig , Sean and Michael Macdougall. I was suppose to play but my back has been bad for a few days now so was unable to play.  It was a lovely day and the course was excellent , PLGC was the sponsor which gives each prize winner another £10 onto their winnings which is a great idea which were happy to support , Sean shot 67-3 , Craig 70 Lvl and Mikey 71

Delighted to announce we have added Kevin Duncan to our stable of supported professionals , Kevin will wear the PLF logo on all clothes and will be attached to Plgc where he will have full use of all facilities , Kevin has been impressive so far in the north east alliance circuit and were keen to help him progress with his chosen career , like all our pros Kevin will receive a set amount of money up front then will earn bonus payments depending where he finishes in events , we wish him all the best

North East Alliance Fraserburgh

I played at Fraserburgh yesterday with Craig, my nephew Sean, and foundation manager Michael MacDougall. Craig was best with 65 then I was 67, Sean 69 and Mikey 81-7. it was really good to play there again as its been a while. It was a lovely day with little wind and pretty mild. I hit some balls at Plgc for a couple of hours after we got back


Stage 2 tour school Rd 4

Craig had a disappointing day shooting 78+6 which I think came through frustration of hitting it good all week and holing no putts , but it's all good experience for him and he'll know what to expect next time.  Congrats to everyone who qualified at each venue and all the best at final school next week, especially the scots lads. We're staying at Barcelona airport tonight then fly home tomorrow ready for the alliance at Fraserburgh on Wednesday morning

Stage 2 Q school round 3

Craig shot 72 again today and again he played really good and missed putt after putt for birdie which is frustrating for him and his spectator ..... It's all good experience for him but I doubt he's thinking that right now

Stage 2 Q school

Craig shot 72 Lvl par today , it was pretty much the same story as yesterday where he hit it nice but struggled on the greens , again he hit a lot of lovely putts but holed nothing , the weather was again perfect with scoring really low

Round 1 stage 2 Q school

Craig shot 73+1 today which was frustrating for him as he hit it really good from tee to green but holed nothing all day on the greens , scoring was really good as theirs loads of chances so hopefully he'll get some birdies tomorrow , it was another lovely day with no wind and pretty hot

Stage 2 Q School

I'm in Spain this week with Craig who is playing in the second stage of qualifying school  at panoramica GC. We flew yesterday to Barcelona then hired a car for the two hour journey , this week is a 72 hole event with no cut. I walked round with Craig this morning the course is very nice with the greens rolling lovely

Thanks to everyone at Montrose for looking after us.


I was at Parkhead with Craig , Michael and Sean to watch Aberdeen lose 3-1 to Celtic in the lunchtime kick off , we had a few chances but overall Celtic played well and deserved the victory , we are staying at Loch Lomond tonight and playing there early tomorrow morning before heading back up the road

NE Alliance Montrose

I played at Montrose this morning with Craig and Sean we had a few showers and visibility was poor but the condition of the course was top notch with the greens rolling beautifully , I only got home on Monday evening so jet lag been awful so no surprise to struggle a wee bit shooting 75+4 mind you I was only +1 playing the 17th but a triple bogey 7 finished me off , Craig had 72+1 and Sean 74+3 , really enjoyed it and looking forward to playing a few alliances this winter


I left Seoul at 10 55am arriving into Heathrow at 2pm then the 5 15pm flight up the road , it was a really good week but pretty tiring when you consider the miles we covered but really good fun , thanks to all Aberdeen asset management staff and customers I hope you all enjoyed it and hope to see you all next year

AAM golf day Korea

Today was the fourth and final golf day on our trip , we played at sky 72 GC , it's an incredible facility with 72 holes and the largest driving range in the world with 300 bays.  The course was again in fantastic condition as it had hosted the LPGA tour only last week. It has been a really good trip a little tiring but a lot of fun , I fly home tomorrow morning

We flew overnight from Sydney to Tokyo for the third golf day out of four on the trip , i had a day off on Friday which was nice as I managed to catch up on some sleep , we played at caledonia GC on Saturday which is same course we played last year which was again very nice. We then flew onto Seoul, Korea, on Saturday night for the fourth and final day.

AAM golf day Sydney

It was an early start in Melbourne this morning to fly to Sydney for our second golf day of the trip , I gave a clinic on the range late morning then we headed out onto the course.  The weather was awful with a really strong breeze blowing and some heavy showers thrown in , most of the groups began to stop playing as it was getting really heavy and not pleasant.  We brought forward the food and did a longer Q&A for everyone , despite the weather I really enjoyed visiting Sydney again massive thanks to Brett and all the team in Australia for looking after me , I flew to Tokyo overnight for our third golf day which is on Saturday which gives me a day off today

AAM Golf day Royal Melbourne

Portugal masters Sunday

This week I had rounds of 71-70-74-70 for 285 +1 My tee to green was pretty good but struggled with short game and putting this week , my back held up pretty well but it was a struggle on a few occasions but it was good to get four rounds in.  It was good to have Marian and the boys as well as the Morrisons and the Reids with me this week, we've had a great time , we're staying at the Sofitel in terminal 5 tonight then I head to Australia, Japan and Korea tomorrow afternoon for golf days with Aberdeen Asset Management while the gang head home to Aberdeen
