Monthly Medal + D.A. Heard Cup - 25.07.20

A Monthly Medal combined with the D.A. Heard Cup was played on Saturday, 25th July, 2020, on a lovely warm day with a mixture of clouds and sunny periods, occasional light showers and moderate to strong winds.         The successful contestants were first one of our new members Gerald McMorrow with a very good score of 74(8)66; followed in second place by Iain Clark on 69(2)67(best last three holes); and in third on the same score was Les McAllister on 71(4)67(2nd bih); whilst fourth place was taken by Colin Finlay also on a score of 69(2)67(3rd bih).    Prizes of £40; £30; £20 and £10 were awarded to the four winners and of course the D.A. Heard Cup goes to Gerald McMorrow.     Only two of the contestants had the necessary skill to hole out in two at the nominated holes, and surprisingly nobody managed this feat at the 6th hole.    Equally surprisingly the only two who managed it at the 18th were the father and son duo of Alistair and Michael McVie, who each received the princely sum of £12 each for their efforts.      A total of 48 entrants took part in the competition; the entry fee was £3 each making a total of £144; £100 was paid out in prize money; and with £24 being paid to the two's winners, this left £20 for the contingency fund.
