The May Monthly Medal, sponsored by Dental Accountants Scotland, was played on 15th May and incorporated the second qualifying round of the Club Championship. Playing conditions were very good with light winds and sunny spells. The golfer of the day and winner of the medal was Grant Kinghorn with a very good score of 88(25)63, and he was closely followed by three others on the same net score of 64, these being Colin Robinson on 84(20)64(bih); Hughie Macdonald on 80(18)64 (2ndbih); and Ian Main on 85(21)64. All on his own in 5th place was Ian Wilkie on 92(27)65. These winners received prizes of £50; £40; £30; £25 and £15 respectively. Very surprisingly none of the competitors managed to score in two at the nominated holes, those being the 6th and 18th, and the £37 which would have been paid out to the lucky golfers has been held over to next week’s competition. A total of 74 members took part and with the entry fee being £3, this made the eventual prize fund a grand total of £222. With £160 being paid out to the winners and £37 being carried forward, this left £25 for the contingency fund.
We are indebted to Dental Accountants Scotland for sponsoring the May monthly medal, and it should also be noted that they also sponsor the ‘C’ Club Championship.
