The rain that was forecast today did not materialise other than for a very short spell, and so 21 of us enjoyed fairly benign conditions. As a result there were some high scores and some members will be relieved that they were not playing in a counter.
In first place with 45 points was Houston Fyfe. His account will be boosted by £6. I had the privilege of playing with Houston today and his short game was a joy to behold. In second place was Ian Burns with 42 points. His account will benefit to the tune of £4. In third equal place (41 points) were David Grant and Jim Wilson. They will each be credited with £2.50. And with 40 points were George Tindle, Jim Jackson and Eddie Maurer who will each get £1.
Twos today were recorded by Eddie Maurer at the 12th, Houston Fyfe at the 10th, and David Grant at the 18th. Only the 5th hole was unavailable today in respect of which each player was awarded two points. Claims from those who allegedly always get at least 3 points at this hole were laughed out of court. £3 will be allocated to the prize fund
Kind regards, Mike
