Cooler, blustery conditions with heavy rain for brief periods presented a challenge for 50 players in the August Monthly Medal. With the wind from the south the 2nd hole proved to be the easiest vs par although as so often the 1st was the most difficult vs par. Six 2s were recorded, alongside 30 birdies in total, showing the greens are still putting nicely despite the challenging growing conditions.
Winning scores today were :-
1st place nett : Eddie Oswin 77 - 12 = 65
2nd place nett : Andy Glencross 81 - 15 = 66
3rd place nett : Keith Helstrip 77 - 10 = 67
Best gross : Craig Hallam 71 (off 4 handicap)
Don't forget the 3rd round of the Summer Series is on Tuesday, SRGC players pay £5 to enter, Visitors £15, with substantial vouchers at stake and also your aggregate score counts towards the 5 round series finishing in October.
Next Sunday is the Gents Summer Open, a 36 Hole Individual Medal. For those not playing in the Open, note that there are playing slots available for social games to book from about 11:00 until just after 12:00.
