Mclean wins Buchan Firkin

A historic golf tournament held in the Broch saw 64 competitors battle it out.

The winner of the Buchan Firkin was Phil Mclean who also won the tournament in 2008. Mclean won the 36-hole open with a score of 137 beating his closest rivals K. Duncan and Jordan Findlay by five strokes.

The tournament is open to both professionals and amateurs and this year’s tournament saw an abundance of up-and-coming Scottish talent with some players who had recently played in the Scottish Amateur open and two who have been selected for the Walker Cup squad.

A spokesman for the tournament told the Herald: “We would like to thank the Elizabethan Bar and The Famous Grouse for sponsoring this years Buchan Firkin.

“Without their support the Buchan Firkin wouldn’t be the success that it is. Thanks to Raymond Forsyth of the Elizabethan for continuing to sponsor the Buchan Firkin.”

Buchan Firkin sponsored by Elizabethan Bar and The Famous Grouse.
