30/04/16 Alex Ponton Memorial Cup

 In last Saturday's Alex Ponton Memorial Cup, played in a Two Man Texas Scramble format, Mark Easson dragged Iain Clark round in only 64 shots to win this fine trophy from Andrew Webster and his sidekick Mitch Thomson who also had a good day, coming second and having two twos. 

Results  :-  1  M.Easson & I.Clark           net 59.5

                   2  A.Webster & M.Thomson      60.0

                   3  H.MacDonald & W.MacDonald  62.2 

Twos  :-  Three couples only had one shot each at the short 6th hole  -  J.Farrell & W.S.Walton, A.Webster & M.Thomson and the MacDonald brothers.

                Similarly at the 18th hole, it was only one shot each for D.Brugnoni & I.Wilkie, L.McAllister & P.McVie, R.Pow & N.Purves and, of course, A.Webster & M.Thomson. 

This Saturday the Grouse Trophy, kindly sponsored by Xela Scaffolding, will be contested. It takes the form of a three man team event in which golfers are expected to prop each other up.
