Hume hits 67
IT WAS the low handicappers who mastered the tricky wet and windy conditions in last Saturday’s Centenary Cup, sponsored by Jim Farrell.
It was fitting that the club captain in 1983, the centenary year, Jocky Hume triumphed, recording a remarkable 67 – almost shooting his age.
Results: 1, J. A. Hume nett 64; 2, I. Clark 66; 3, A. McVie 66; 4, G. Inglis 68. Twos: A. McVie and N. W. Purves.
This week’s sympathy goes to an intrepid trio who were caught in the worst of the wind and rain playing their 17th hole. Ian Stephenson had a nine, Dennis Smith had a 10 and Drew Reid went home.
In the Open Mixed Greensomes on Sunday, sponsored by Colin Turnbull, it was good – in a way – to see the visitors take the spoils, although our own Martine Pow and Donald Ballantine also took their share of the prizes.
Results: 1, D and P. Leithead (Hawick) nett 66.4; 2, B. and M. Black (Magdalene Fields) 66.6; 3, N and C. Purves 67.8. Scratch: R. D. Ballantine and M. Pow 67. Twos: R. D. Ballantine and M. Pow (2), the Blacks, the Heards and the Whitefords. Nearest the Pin: (6 or 15), K. Scott; (9 or 18), R. D. Ballantine
The club championships are well under way with shocks and surprises galore expected during the week. The finals are all on Saturday, starting at noon. Good weather, good golf and good crowds are also expected. AM
This week saw the Woll’s Annual Championships being played.
After a week of battling midges, and re-arranging games due to the heavy rain, Saturday arrived and the weather looked promising.
Along came the showers, however, although they failed to dampen the spirits of the players or the spectators.
Organisers were pleased to see so many people come along and support fellow competitors.
In the Ladies’ Championship final, Merrick Innes took the honours over Janice Cambridge.
The Gents’ Championship final was between Andy Lindores and Alistair Gillie, which saw Lindores winning the title for the fourth time. Playing in the Plate final was Bruce Caswell and Alan Brunton, where Bruce emerged as the winner, while the Salver was won by Rob Nisbet who won out over Richard Snowden.
