In the Senior Division, Allan Bradshaw put on an impressive performance with a one-over-par 71 in today’s round to claim the Senior Division title with a total score of 152.
The Johnnie Walker Classic has certainly regained its stature on the golfing calendar, thanks to the inspiration of Brian Morris, the Head Pro at Ocean View Golf Course.
