The 1st round was played on one of the warmest days of the year but the strong breeze, coming rather unusually from the North-North-East, clearly affected scoring with many established players struggling. As it's a 36 hole competition no results are available yet, but the current standings can be seen below.
Thank you to Rod Rawson for acting as starter for both Gents & Ladies Competitions, a fabulous effort to be repeated on Sunday, we are indebted as always.
The 2s club is run independently on each day, 6 players had 2s today but Ben Rawson's was an eagle on 13 so he receives a double share. Ben sadly found out today that he cannot play in Sunday's 2nd round, and considering that his nett score of 68 today was the best of the day that's a real shame, I also note that his nett 68 playing off 9 included a quadruple bogey on the 8th, so a really exceptional round was so close but just eluded him.
Good luck to all playing in the 2nd round.
