    Men’s September Medal – 10th September

    61 members took part in the above medal in tricky conditions. As is normal recently there were 2 disqualifications and 9 no-returns. Only two players broke par with Stewart holding off Kevin on the better inward half rule after both recorded net 64’s. The C.S.S. was 66.

    The scratch medal was one by Robert Martin who ironically pipped Stewart on the better inward half rule after they had both recorded scores of 69.

    The results were as follows: -

    1st Stewart Oliver      69 – 5 = 64 (b.i.h.)

    2nd Kevin Skelton       71 – 7 = 64

    3rd Larry Athersmith   81 – 15 = 65
