The weather “Guru’s” were spot on this week where heavy rain and hail showers prevailed for most of the day, blown down and across the course in a strong North Westerly gale making golfing conditions miserable, however in between the showers the “current bun” popped out to dry the water proofs and heat up the hardy winter leaguers who braved the wind and rain.
Before we go into the results this week, a special mention to past Peterhead Golf Club Captain A. B. Buchan for his “Care in the Community” attitude when looking after his “elderly” playing partners, Alex was tasked with having to, pick up golf bags that had fallen off a golf buggy, (by the way these carts shouldn’t have been on the course due to the wet conditions), picking up pencils, ball markers etc and running after score cards, however Alex maintained his composure and remained in control of his game to post a credible 47 net under difficult playing (and partner) conditions…well done Alex…patience is a virtue
A decent field turned out this week with 97 players teeing up. Considering wet and windy conditions which prevailed for most of the morning and early afternoon, it was expected the winning scores to be up slightly compared to last week’s glorious summer conditions, however that was not the case, Dougie Cruickshank posted an excellent 3 over par 49 for 43 net. Doug was out in 3 over 25 against the strong wind but steadied the ship to complete the back 6 in level par 24 and pick up the 4pts on his own. That’s Dougies first points of the season but could be early favourite for the title.
Top scratch score this week was posted by Steve Burnett “aka China” with a very tidy 2 over par 48. Steve was never in any trouble with halves of 23/25 and posted a net score of 44 which was good enough for 3pts.
Selected Score Details:
Barry McGee was on fire going out in 23 which included a birdie 2 at the 2nd but unfortunately could not keep up the good work coming back in 28 f or 51 – 7 = 44.
James “All things Celtic” Duthie will rue a costly Len Goodwin “SEVEN” at the last for 45 net, a 5 would have gave him a share with Dougie, RB said in the clubhouse that his collapse was like watching Celtic play PSG 😀 .
The 3rd hole which was playing slightly downwind proved costly for Dale Galley where he recorded a double bogey 6, Dale’s halves were 26/25 where a birdie 3 at the 17th tidied up his card.
Wullie Middler started with a demoralising 6 at the first but bounced back with a birdie 2 at the 2nd normal service then resumed until the 15th where a triple bogey 7 was posted???? A birdie-birdie finish tidied up the card and was a good “Haste ye Back” for next week Wullie.
Dave “Red” Buchan, must have thought his score was heading for the “bucket” after posting a 7 at the 14th but an eagle 2 at the 17th was enough to repair the damage and get him “in the points”.
Only changes to the leader board this week is winner Dougie C who joins a number of players on 4pts and Dave Red who joins Huggy, Dru and “Gas Meter” Duthie in 2nd place with 5pts. Camo and Mike Kerr are still leading on 6pts and eight players are on joint 3rd place with 4pts (details on attached leader board).
Considering the poor weather another excellent field of 97 tee’d up this week, the average for the first 6 weeks is 97 which is great turnout for winter golf.
59 players have recorded points, of which 11 are within 2 points of the leaders, Camo and Mike have went quiet the past few weeks so maybe time for the chasing pack to catch up.
