TPM – THE LOGAN GOLDEN BRICK

Twenty seven players, including returning player Richard Evans for his first outing of the year, teed off for the second week running in springlike conditions. Only 1 two recorded by David Marshall at the 4th.

Winner on the day was El Presidento, Mr Bob Cooke, with a nett 32, second was Jack McIlduff with a 34, third was Alan McGregor with a nett 35 who beat Gordon Williamson on the last 6 who in turn beat Jimmy Alford into fifth also on the last 6. As Bob has already won the weekly prize goes to Jack.

Overall 3 players lead at the top of the table, Tony Gregg, the President and Robin Cooke on nett 27, and in 4th spot with nett 28 are 6 players Jimmy Alford, Gerry Murray, Billy Pollock, David Marshall and Denis Logan.

With 7 weeks still to run, and another 6 players on 29, it’s getting very close at the top and some exceptional play is needed by someone to break away from the pack.

WEDNESDAY BOYS

Ten went out and ten came home. Conditions were excellent; temperatures well into double figures more than compensated for the brisk breeze and somewhat damp conditions under foot. Peter Clarke rejoined us after a short break and was rewarded with a splendid win, carding 21 points and a birdie on the fourth. Well done Peter!
Our weekly competition finished as follows: -
Peter Clarke 21 
Jim Wilson 20
Derek Bell and Gerry Murray 15
2's were scored by Peter Clarke and Derek Bell on the fourth.
With only six weeks to go, tensions continue to mount in the John Coote Eclectic Competition. Improvements were as follows: -
21 by Peter Clarke (First day out in the eclectic.)
3 by Jim Wilson
1 by Davey Anderson, Derek Bell, Joe Graham and Paul Logan

The leader board now stand as follows: -
1st. Paul Logan 29
2nd. Raymond Hopper, Derek Bell and Joe Graham 26
5th Gerry Murray 24
6th. John Cochrane and Rea Crawford 23

Although Paul Logan has established a three point lead, rumour has it that, holiday commitments may exclude his appearance on at least two of the remaining days and how quickly a lead can evaporate! A glance at the Davey Anderson's excellent spreadsheet reveals many improvement opportunities for every player, so it's still all to play for.

LADIES NEWS
