IN THE first of the Winter Woolies competitions – the last of 2012 – there was some good golf played in the bad conditions, and there was nobody better than those two winter warriors Les Rutherford and Bill Walton.
They tied on net 32s with Billy the Bandit, who played on Saturday morning, on 33. Billy Macdonald, to give him his real name, played less well on the Sunday, his score including an Al Jolson at the eighth.
Winning golf balls courtesy of Murray Cleghorn for having a two on their cards were Peter Henderson and Les Rutherford, who was clever enough to hole out at the sixth twice.
On the previous weekend, the lure of Christmas shopping and of course the appalling weather, deterred most golfers but not the brothers Macdonald.
Billy won, but his big brother took the kudos and the cracker with a two at the ninth courtesy of a humungous putt. AM
