Another great turnout today for the Smithfield and JW Grays Opens with 94 men turning up and 42 ladies.
Ladies first and in the Grays it was a 63 Nett from Marlene Croy that sneaked it a shot clear from Ida Seator with Lorraine Work & Elaine Wishart a shot behind on 65 netts. Fifth to seventh nett required the beloved countback and it was Kay Mowat from Anne Robertson while Jenna McDill claimed the last prize in 7th nett from Moira Groundwater. Moira however had the last laugh by claiming the 2s kitty thanks to her birdie at the 8th.
In the gross is was revenge for Kathleen Sutherland as her 77 beat her victorious opponent in last week’s matchplay Shona Croy (81) into second. Shona Slater (84) found herself promoted to 3rd gross with Ida (82) being 2nd Nett.
In the Smithfield Open it was a tight
affair with countback being required to decide the cup. It was
Hoy, Dounby, Stenness legend Stewart Moar that shoulder-barged poor young
Gary Harvey to the sideline after both had tied on 60 netts. In third place
Alfred ‘Olly, St Johnstone glory hunter’ Sinclair with his 61 and Davie Garson
& Andy Watt a shot further back with 62s.
In the gross it was Outertown legend Steven Rendall who eased round in 66 shots two clear of Brian Corsie and a birdie at the last saw a freshly jabbed Denis Harvey snatch third on countback from Steven Walls and Wayne Monkman.
Once again a huge thanks to both our sponsors, JW Grays and the Smithfield Hotel. Also to Rae & Lee for a course in fantastic condition.
