September Medal results.
Our final Medal event of the season saw a field of 24 players compete over the Seafield course for the last place in next week's Medal Final. Once again the course came out on top with
only 5 players breaking par although our winner was a clear 6 shots ahead of the field. We had 3 players tied on 72 shots for the best gross score but new Club Champion Bob Long pipped both
Alan Smeeton and Alan Muir on countback on the back 9. The fight for the podium places was tight with 2 players tied on nett 66 (2 under par) including Club Captain Tony Bloor despite
dropping 3 shots in his opening 2 holes before his birdie 2 at the third. Bogeys at 7&9 meant Tony was nett 3 under par at the turn before another bogey at 11 was followed by a triple bogey
at 13. Further double bogeys at 15&17 finally took him out of contention to win as he limped home in nett 1 over par for the inward half. Also shooting nett 66 was Billy Murdoch who dropped
4 shots in his opening 3 holes before a birdie at 4 settled him down. A run of 7 straight pars from 5-11 was undone with a bogey at 12 and further dropped shots at 15&18 saw Billy finish
nett 1 under par for the back 9 to pip Tony on countback for 2nd place. Our clear winner today was Alan Muir whose level par outward half of 33 strokes contained a birdie at 5 and a bogey
at 9. A double bogey at 10 was compounded by bogeys at 12&13 but a strong finish of 5 straight pars meant a nett 60 and 8 under par total for a 6 shot victory. We had 4 players with 2's during
the event with Billy Rae, Tony Bloor and Robert Long making birdie at hole 3 while Stephen Kelly fired a birdie at hole 15. Unfortunately, Billy does not enter the Two's competition and so the
spoils will be shared among the others once all payments have been made.

Amendment to procedure
Following 2 incidents where a member was left without a game, the following procedure must now be followed by all players who pull out of a game
after the draw has been made. It is now a requirement that the player pulling out contacts EVERYONE PLAYING IN THE GROUP to inform them. This should happen
as a common courtesy but clearly has not been.
