THE summer season came to an end with a flourish as John Heath won the DD Davidson shootout for the 2011 competition winners.

The highlight of his round was an ace at the sixth hole and this proved to be vital as he pipped Simon Milburn by one shot.

A week earlier, Bruce Currie, Stewart Beaumont, Brian Learmonth and Dougie King won the closing Texas Scramble by two clear shots.
