The 2nd Legacy Cup sponsored by Highland Spring, a legacy to the Ryder and Junior Ryder Cups from 2014 was once again played over The PGA Centenary Course, Gleneagles and Rosemount, Blairgowrie on Sunday 10th and Monday 11th September. A full field of 72 players competed on two mild but blustery days for the magnificent trophy donated by the European Tour, a trophy which has official holograms of the Ryder and Junior Ryder Cups inscribed.
The first round played over The PGA Centenary Course was particularly blustery and provided a real challenge to all Gents and Ladies participating. Murray Duncanson and Johnnie Montgomery led the field with 34 stableford points whilst the top lady was Carol McNally with 27.
The shotgun start over Rosemount on 11th September, was played in calmer brighter conditions, which were not dissimilar to those experienced at the events of 2014. Carol McNally returned a very impressive 41 points, but with Murray Duncanson maintaining his form and returning 38 points, he went on to win this coveted trophy by 4 shots from his nearest rival, Carol McNally.
