Daylight for McKnight


The Sunday Society this week was played in truly stormy conditions with a “cut” to the wind that most would have preferred to see on the golf ball sooner than across the whole course! When the cards were checked after a tough day’s competition it Connor McKnight(20) who had placed some daylight between himself and the chasing pack. Thirty -four points was an excellent return given the conditions and, if the truth be told, Connor squandered shots on the course as he bogeyed six, eight and nine. Still, a host of pars made up for those mistakes and he won easily by a margin of three from the challengers.

Jeremy Thatcher(14) and Graham Hepburn(2) carded 31 points apiece and had to be separated by the tie-break rules. Jeremy nursed his ball around the course but even he came a cropper on the difficult Par 5 3rd,”Longfellow” where he failed to register a point but a welcome birdie three at the notoriously deceptive Par 4 10th,”Spires” made up for the mistakes and he finished in second place. The disgruntled two-handicapper Graham Hepburn had to be content with third spot despite another great round. At this stage he must be asking what he has to do to top the table at Prehen!

 Jim O’Hagan(18) piped up with 30 points to take fourth spot on 30 points but he needed a B.O.T to best the ever-improving Frederick Stuart(20) who carded the same total. But for a taxing time on seventeen and eighteen Freddy would have surely finished higher on the table! Sixth place has yet to be decided.
