Yarrowford Shield Rd.1 - 28.9.19

The first round of the Yarrowford Shield was played on Saturday, 28th September, 2019, in mainly sunny weather, but with gusting winds from the north west.     The leader on the day with a net score of 67(2)65 was Iain Clark. In second place, with a welcome return to form, was John Coyle on a score of 76(10)66(bih) and third on the same score of 71(5)66 was Scott Galloway.     Other scores were Norman Roxburgh on net 67; Les Rutherford, Bill Walton, Chris Kemp and Graeme Bell on net 69; and Rodney Pow & Peter Henderson, both on net 70.     Three contestants managed to score a 2 at the nominated holes and these were Iain Clark, Alistair McVie and Robert J. Wilson all at the 18th, with each receiving £5 for their efforts.     A disappointing number of 28 members took part; and with the entry fee being £3 this made a total of only £84; £65 was paid out in prize money, and with £15 being paid out for 2's this left £4 for the contingency fund.
