Brendan McKenna is the new Glasgow Open Amateur Champion after a sudden death playoff at Pollok Golf Club yesterday. The competition had to be restricted to 18 holes due to the heavy rain and adverse conditions. After the first round both Brendan and Willie McMillan of Bonnyton had tied with fine scratch scores of 66, but Brendan went on to win at the 1st extra hole with a birdie. Congratulations to Brendan and to all the players who braved the persistent rain, and thanks to Pollok Golf Club for presenting an excellent course despite the very poor weather.
