Kinnaird Trophy - Saturday 5 October 2013

It felt as though we had reached the end of the season with a turnout of 120 members on a reasonable day. Perhaps it actually is the Winter as, surely, Jimmy McAulay must have put the big cups into the greens of the par threes. Nearly thirty members had a two from such a field must mean the greens are in good nick even now. Andy Jamieson will not be complaining as he picked up £150 for his pair of twos which were identical to VC Peter's two on Wednesday which returned £4. Anyone want to bet he will try and "fix" this?

A brilliant round from Paul McFarlane of sixtynine, meant he collected the scratch prize for the second time this season.

In the third section, Archie Essler and Stephen Downie had a real battle for top spot. Archies round was built on having played the par threes in only one over par. Pretty good for a nineteen handicapper. Archie would have a couple of double bogeys and finish on net sixtyseven. Stephen, who is still dining out on our sweep money from last year, was four over par for the first six holes and then went six, nine, five to be out in fortyeight. The twenty handicapper then came home in a superb thirty nine for his own net sixtyseven. Both players share the sweep, but Stephen gets top billing.

In Section two Alex Irving missed out as he had a poorer net sixtyseven against that of Mike Morrod for third spot. Mike had a really consistent round and broke eighty for this first time a while to post a season's best seventynine. In second place was Rab Murphy. The season is ending all too soon for Rab as he is continuing to drive his handicap down week after week and he is also still on a high from the recent Ton result. Two nothing against the mighty Alloa is pretty good these days! Ten handicapper Blaine Jamieson had a great start to his round with three birdies in his first six holes. Getting to the turn in thirty seven is no mean feat and his outward half was slightly spoiled by double bogeys on four and eight. A solid back nine of thirty eight was excellent stuff and results in a single figure handicap for the first time. Well done.

Section one would reveal the winner of the Kinnaird trophy. In third place was Paul McFarlane on net sixtysix. Runner up in the group was Stuart Gallacher who put together halves of thirty six and thirty four in a really good round.
The winner of the Medals finals, if I call it that, was David Carney. Seven man, Davie, hardly ever misses a competition and puts a lot into his game. His reward came on Saturday with a front nine of thirty four which had four birdies. If we excluded the "loop", Davie was actually level par for the fourteen other holes. A best ever round of seventy one meant a net sixty four, a new handicap of six and his first ever silverware at the club. Davie might be in contention for the M & H's team plans for next year at this rate.
The runner up in the Kinnaird was Brian McLean on net sixty nine.

Tri Am Trophy - Saturday 21 September 2013

Saturday's competition presented members with the opportunity of playing their way into the annual jamboree which is the GGC Charity Tri Am. Dave Terrey who is the host for this event has been missing in action recently, having lost to Dennis McKelvie in the final of the Whinhill Seniors. A run around the loop of something in the order of 7,6,7,6 from Dennis meant two holes halved and two won! Congratulations to Dennis in securing his first silverware at the club.

A reasonable field of just over 140 saw a course that still looks and plays superbly, even at this time of the year.
Some players took advantage of this and managed their own bit of golfing magic. John Gunn had two 2s, Eddie Ptolomey got his single two at the sixth and surely did not see it coming, having started 8,5,4,6,7? and Bob Hughes achieved a hole in one at the third. This is the second of the year for the club and Bob will see a nice Hugo Boss watch winging its way to him.

Alistair Roy had a scratch sixty nine and has taken a stranglehold on the race for the Robert Spence Trophy for the ten best gross scores. There are only three available rounds to play for this.

In section one we saw the form players coming good. In third place was Chris Connelly. Chris is still celebrating his recent Challenge Cup victory over Peter Gallagher and has managed a nibble at his eight handicap with a net sixty seven. Gerry Donnachie, partnered by John Burns, has just completed a memorable double with wins in both the Provost Trophy and Captains Foursomes. In the final of the Provost they were two down after seven holes to my favourites, Jimmy McAulay and Stevie Lapsley. John Burns then had a terrific run of 3 ,3, 3, 3 from the eighth and also had birdies at fourteen and eighteen to finish the game off in great style.

Against my other favourites for the Captains Foursomes, they also came through to overcome the odds against Hughie Lyden and Owen Gallagher. This meant that they actually successfully defended their title from last year. This has only ever been achieved once before, by Tommy Forbes and Cammy McCallum in 1980 & 81.
Anyway, Gerry has learned from watching John and racked up a net sixty six for second place.

The winner of the section, and also runner up in the trophy, is Tennent Trophy winner, Davie Heron. The nine handicapper had six pars plus a birdie in his front nine of thirtyeight and came home in a superb thirtysix, having dropped shots at ten,eleven and sixteen.

The third section had Mark Taylor, who has finally sobered up from New Years Day, taking third place with a net sixty eight. David Anderson will be pleased with his sixty seven, but the winning score in this group came from Stephen Connelly who took a gross eightyfive less nineteen.

Don Shields and Tommy McShane will look back at excellent scores of net sixty six and wonder if they could be improved upon.

Just like the 64 bus to Auchenshuggle which goes to Parkheid, we wait for ever on one and along comes a few. Jim Gallagher, who already this year has won the Charity Salver has now captured the Tri Am Trophy with a terrific score which turns the clock back. A disappointing double bogey at nine meant an outward half of thirty nine.

Thirteen handicapper Jim would come home in a five over thirty eight for his best score in years.
It is very rare for anyone to win two handicap strokeplay competitions in the one season and the only recollection I have is of Hugh McVey in 2002 and no one else. Perhaps Ian Doak with a freshly allocated generous handicap a number of years ago?   

Anyway, well done to Jim and I am sure he will enjoy stepping out with the big guns next Saturday.

On Saturday, Kevin will be running a nine hole competition and members can also use this score against the Murray Cup.

On Sunday we are having an ad hoc Texas scramble for teams of three.

September Medal & Autumn Meeting - Saturday 14 September 2013

What a difference a week can make as regards weather. From being washed out last Saturday we were presented with an altogether different set of conditions this week.

As well as it being the final round of the Lyle Medal, the 'Unsung Major' in many members eyes, the last four qualifying places for the Kinnaird Trophy were up for grabs.

In section three there were really only four players at the races. Danny Maloney and Robert Campbell would both come home with net seventies. Danny will one day have a real coupon buster of a score as he is playing with a degree of consistency right now. Robert, a club championship semi finalist from the days of black and white telly, is pegging away at his handicap and refuses to use the easy route into the ninth which would knock a shot off immediately. Battling it out for top spot were Vinny Hurrell and Dugald Carmichael.Two excellent halves from Vinny of forty three and forty one would result in a net sixty seven. Dugald's card was a bit more erratic as he had a front nine of ten over followed by a steadier inward half of forty for his net sixty seven which would gain him a place in the medals finals. Dugald might look back on a chance at greater glory as he was only four shots off the Lyle Medal itself.

Section two was not even a fair fight. Coming home with net sixty eights were Kenny Gilmour who marred his card with a seven at fifteen, Stevie McDowall who was only two over par for his first seven holes, James Glover who had two halves of thirty nine and  would finish three shots off the Lyle medal and finally Brian Hamill who scored every number between two and seven. With a net sixty seven and a particularly consistent round was Graham Hunter. His gross seventy seven was his best ever round. Jim McNeil had a terrific season last year, winning the 'County' and he has now driven his handicap down to ten with a round of net sixty five. Eleven handicapper, Jim, went to the turn in four over par and retained that after thirteen holes. With a three bogies in his next four holes Jim needed something special at the last for a good cut and a birdie was precisely what he achieved for a scratch seventy six and a net sixty five.

The medal winner, however, was a returning member of long standing. It is always "nice to to be nice" when people come back to the club and the self appointed M & H convenor duly gave David Alford a handicap of fourteen in order that he could ease himself gently into the place again. Starting out with four, four, five and six sent out no ripples of concern. A run of level par to the turn meant David was out in thirty nine. A par at ten started a sequence of scores for the first seven holes of the back nine which he covered in two over. A couple of minor blips at seventeen and eighteen meant a back nine of thirty seven and a total of seventy six less fourteen for a net sixty two.

Section one was a fiercely fought out affair. All three players who shot net sixty nines, Brendan Harley, Alec Cloudsley and John Leslie can look back on very good rounds of golf which only featured a single bad hole or two in it and they were only pipped by a single stroke from getting into the winner's enclosure. There were five players who had net sixty eights. Fraser Gray started like a train, getting to the eighth tee in one under par, before the wheels came off slightly in an outward half of thirty seven. Fraser would give up six shots around the loop and come home in forty for a gross seven seven.Gordon McFarlane continues to push his handicap down and he also had a great first seven holes, parring them all in an outward half of thirty seven.He will be really disappointed to finish his round with two bogies on seventeen and eighteen for a seventy six.

Stevie Lapsley left his fireworks for the back nine. Five handicapper Stevie went out in thirty eight and came home in an excellent two over par for a seventy three.Playing off nine, Al Livingstone would have a reasonable round going until he came to the fourteenth tee where he would finish with a run of four, three, three, six and three for his seventy seven. The method employed to find a winner is by the Standard countback procedure and this was used to separate Paul Mitchell from the others. Yes! He is back to haunt the self appointed one yet again! If we thought David Alford was the one to watch then we were wrong. At first, when the name Mitchell was mentioned in respect to scoring, it was thought that it was Joe, who has now taken to betting on himself not getting a two, that sent shivers down the committee.

Anyway Paul, armed with a handicap of six, used the whole lot of them up in getting to the turn. However, a great back nine of level par meant a gross seventy four and a medal winning round.

Interestingly, Alistair Roy nibbled a stroke from his ten round scratch score to move one shot into the lead over Craig Thomson in the race for the Robert Spence trophy.

Whilst all this excitement was taking place the Lyle medal was being contested. It turned out to be a two horse race and Brian McLean will rue a finish of eight, five, six ,nine (that is thirteen over par for the last four holes to save counting) and he would miss out by two shots. The winner of the Lyle medal went out in the first gae and would post a total of 69 plus 70 for 139 and only Brian would really challenge that. Well done to Robin Goodall for his first major.

Willow Trophy - 4 September 2013

Congratulations to Charlie McDowell who was finally officially declared the winner of the Willow. Charlie's net 59 earlier in the year destroyed this event as any sort of sport, having followed it up with a net 65.

This Saturday sees the last round of the Lyle Medal, where, due to weather, the best score anyone has had, to date, is a sixty eight from Davie Bruce, Brian McCracken and Brian McLean. This 'Major', the oldest along with the Challenge Cup, is open to almost anyone this year. I have attached a leaderboard, for what its worth.

This weekend also sees the culmination of most of our matchplay competitions.
In the Whinhill Seniors final we have Dave Terrey and Dennis McKelvie. Looking at his performances over the last two years in both this event and also his excellent run in the Challenge Cup last year, I believe Dennis might just pinch this one.

The Challenge Quaich will have a new winner engraved on it after the match between Davie Robertson and Mark Cannon. Taking into account his excellent form in the strokeplay rounds of the Championship, Mark should come through to win.

A superbly close contest is predicted in the final of the Provost Trophy. I will not bore anyone with their respective routes to the final, but both teams have taken care of excellent partnerships to get there. All four players have won the competition before and all four players are in a good run of form. Indeed one team, Gerry Donnachie and John Burns are also in the semi final of the Captains Foursome. So, a very difficult prediction, but my heart says Jimmy McAulay and Steven Lapsley but my head goes for Gerry and John.

Finally we have the Challenge Cup. Peter Gallagher has come in under the radar to reach the final, whereas Chris Connelly has taken the scalps of past winners and low single handicap players en route. Chris has improved dramatically over the past couple of seasons and Peter has seen his handicap at a consistent level of six. I think that the two shots which Chris receives will be vital but I think that years on the coalface of the Winter League honing his matchplay skills and also the recruitment of the luckiest player ever to win the Challenge Cup of 1998, brother Kevin, as caddy will get him through in a really tight game, which go go to extra holes.

The games are on Sunday at 1030 onwards and we hope all finalists enjoy the experience and prove me wrong / right as it is not always that a player reaches one of our finals.

No Winner – Rollover of £50 to Saturday September 7

 

The HG McLennan Trophy reached its conclusion on Saturday with a few players not being intimidated by the first round lead of Rab Murphy and making a decent fist of the competition.

Eventually finishing a long way off the two round total by seven strokes were Jimmy McAulay and Bob Hughes. A net seventy from Jimmy was respectable for the day but there was no real run which could have made the huge inroads require. Bob, on the other hand will rue a six on nine and an eight at eleven, two scores which would normally be considerably better.

Matching his excellent net sixtyeight of the previous week, Stuart Gallacher, playing off five, would have needed to have improved on a number of holes as he did not have the big score on any one individual hole over both rounds in order to eat into the eventual four shot difference.

Ending up only three shots behind was John Burns. It is a strange round for John when he bogies holes two, six and fourteen as usually he would expect to be attempting birdie putts on these greens in particular.

As predicted, Alan Gordon, with the newly allocated handicap, almost followed in the tradition of Alan Rodgers, Ian Doak and the never to be forgotten Paul Mitchell in sweeping up a trophy on the blind side. After a net sixty eight in week one, Alan,playing of sixteen, raced to the turn in afantastic thirty eight, having started with two bogies.

The golfing gods, for once, looked favourably on the self appointed M & H however, and, unfortunately, deemed that Alan should start back with a run of four, seven, six and five. A further seven on fifteen would all add up to a back nine of forty five and a net sixty seven, three shots behind and a whole range of places where improvments could be made.

A player on a real fine run of form is David Casement. Having had a significant cut at the Baxter Trophy at the "Port" only the day after his first round of sixtyseven in last week's round one, David must have felt he still had a real chance. Now playing off five David went out in a superb thirty seven. Dropped shots on ten and eleven were followed by a mixed bag of birdies, pars and bogies. The most significant hole might have been the eighteenth which he birdied to eventually return a scratch seventy three, which was the equal best of the day. This meant a two round total of 134 and a worthy runner up.

The overwhelming leader from week one was Rab Murphy. Rab opened his round with a few wobbles, but would go to the turn in forty shots. At that moment in time he was effectively seven strokes in front of David Casement. He would need a good few of these. A nice par at ten was followed by three lost shots at eleven and twelve. A birdie meant he was unassailable after thirteen. No! Four shots would be dropped at fourteen and fifteen and a finish of three, five, five meant a net seventy, which is still very creditable, off eleven. After all the results were in, Rab was found to have won his six trophy at the club, having previously secured two Captains Trophies, a Laurie Trophy, and, partnered by Frank Bethel, a Navy Cup and a Captains Foursomes. The Navy Cup was in 1986 and,interestingly, Frank Bethel marked Rab's card on week 2. After all these years, surely it is Frank who deserves a medal, not Rab! Frank must be the one doing the social work.

We had a wee raffle on Saturday for some cases of alcohol which were donated by Craig Thomson.
The lucky winners, picked at random by Charlie Marner, who obviously has an aversion to single figure players winning anything, picked the following six members out the section three hat, George Anderson, Ian McFadyen, Pat McLaughlin, Mick O'Brien, Jackie Norman and David Anderson.

HG McLennan Round 1 - Saturday 24 August 2013

Taking advantage of perfect conditions, course architect, Jimmy McAulay, set the greens to a year high peak in an attempt to see if the course record could be broken. To no avail, but wonderful scoring all the same. This level of scoring was not to be the case for Ian Doak. With a couple of terrific scores on the last two Wednesdays which took his handicap down to five for the first time, Ian walked off the first green having just birdied it and must have thought that he had cracked the game. 3 double bogeys would follow and a total of eighty strokes and a return to six handicap would follow.

The HG McLennan is one of the highlites of the calendar at the club with its unique back to back two round format. A whole raft of contenders have positioned themselves for a shot at the title next Saturday and, hopefully, we will be blessed with similar conditions.

Although it should not be the case, many players can be put off by the actions of others. Ending up on the fringes of contention with a seventy was Mark McCaig. Unfortunately Mark's score could have been a lot better but he watched playing partner Craig Thomson get a two at the last and then he ran up a seven!
The players on sixty nine will need to hope for a career round next week if they want to overcome those in front. Higher handicappers Archie Essler and Michael Fulton have a few shots in reserve and might feature. Jimmy McAulay, Paolo Spella and Gerry Donnachie will all fancy their chances. Jim McNeil, Davie Docherty and Mark McDaid have absolutely no reason to think so.

The eight players who took sixty eight are a mixed bag as well. The list starts with twentytwo handicapper, Peter Harley all the way down to category one player Stuart Gallacher. Peter can get safely plastered next week without affecting his chances.

Stuart is consistent enough to put another good score together and might have an outside chance. The two who are really worth watching from this group are previous championship runner up in Alan Wylie, now off eight, and new member Alan Gordon off an extremely generous seventeen.

Challenge Cup finalist Chris Connelly, playing off eight, had two superb halves of thirty seven and thirty eight for a seventy five and is obviously on form. Kenny Piper shrugged off an embarrassing defeat in the Challenge Cup quarter finals the night before to record a net sixty seven and will be hugely dangerous off his eleven handicap. Challeneg Quaich contender, Michael O'Neill, has been playing every week and has nibbled away at his handicap successfully. Off twenty he may put another round on the board as could David casement.

Only three shots off the pace are Danny Maloney and Davie Heron. It is nice to see them both record a good round before the season draws to a close and the can content themselves with that. Also on sixty five is Simon Middleton. Simon has had a really good season with a number of excellent rounds. He was quoted precisely as "watch me in the Championship". Unfortunately I blinked and missed it! Stevie Lapsley, who took a disappointing six at the last and Simon will really fancy their chances.

It is quite fascinating that a number of those who scored well are still in the very last stages of the matchplay events and shows that they are still focussed on their game. Jim Maxwell (Reid Rose bowl semi finalist) and John Burns (Provost finalist and still in Captains foursomes) are two to watch. Maxi started with a six and then a five but then covered the next seven holes in level par. Another six on eleven was followed by a five at twelve. He then went three, three, four to be followed by three straight fives for the last three holes and a round of seventy seven (less twelve). Five handicapper John had a level par front nine and a two over return for a seventy. From left field came Richard Terrey. Ten handicapper Richard shot to the turn in two over par and completed his round nicely with a three at eighteen for a career best of seventy five.

Well out in front of all this pack is Rab Murphy. He is three shots ahead of the nearest challenger after his best ever round. Thirteen handicapper Rab had an amazing level par front nine. An inward start of five straight fours should have set Rab up to break net sixty. Eventually, however, the continual pestering from partner, Jim Orr, of  "Are you sure you dont want to be my Vice Captain? I can get you a car park spot." eventually took its toll and Rab finished with four fives in a row.

Rab only needs to stay standing to win this competition and only a monumental collapse will see any of the challengers overtaking him. It is impossible to lose from this position. He only needs to play somewhere close to his handicap and his name goes on the trophy. No one in history has lost from this sort of position of strength. the rest of us are playing for second place.

Captains Day - Saturday 10 August 2013

We had the interesting situation yesterday where there were 33 players who had a two! From a field of 160 that is quite impressive. We must have extremely accurate players or else the par threes have been set up too easy. Bring back the the pin position on the back of the seventh I say!

In section one, we had the club champion, Cameron Jones taking a ten at the second. There is hope for us all.
There were seven players who scored equal net sixty eights, but the best of those came from David Casement to take third slot in the section. Turning back the clock in runner up spot was Alex Roy. Bogeys on the sixth and ninth meant an outward half of thirty seven followed by a back nine which included a five at sixteen and two threes to finish in level par for seventy less four for a sixty six.

The best scratch of the day came from Paul McFarlane. A bogey at three was offset by a birdie at four and a front nine of one over par. After a bogey at ten followed by a double at eleven, Paul must have thought it was just another round in the buffer zone. A run over the next seven holes of four under par put paid to that thought. Three birdies in a row from twelve and another at seventeen meant a season's best of scratch sixty eight and a net sixtyfour and a huge chunk off his handicap.

In section three there was really only three contenders for the places and they all play off eighteen. Allan McDonald put together a most consistent round and it would be difficult to pick a hole where he could have improved as it was almost regulation bogeys in his net sixty nine for third spot. Derek Leitch and Vinny Hurrell will both rue having a six, a seven and an eight on their front nines. Derek was out in forty four where he also had five pars! Vinny's front nine of forty seven had an eight at the second and also a par at nine. Strange game sometimes. Coming to the last two holes Derek had a lead of two strokes but ran up a six and a five. Vinny finished the stronger with a five and a four for a back nine of thirtyeight to catch Derek.

Section two had a whole group of players who will be upset at their finish. On sixty nine were Ian Wright (6,3,5,7), Bob Hughes (6,5,3,6,4) and Rab McLaughlin (5 at sixteen). On sixty eight was David Williams (5,5,3,5,6). All potentially really good scores marred at the end. Stevie Cameron, playing with a Pro V for the first time, took advantage of this new technology and went out in forty. Fifteen handicapper Stevie managed to complete his last four holes in seven over par and still have a net sixty seven. Jim Maxwell, who somehow or other managed to win a playoff for a place in the Reid Rose Bowl matchplay whilst on a cruise (who runs these competitions? A madman?) is well on course for a superb season as he is in the semis. Yesterday he went out in forty two and came home in a respectable thirty eight for a net sixty seven also. A reduction of a stroke in handicap will please his next opponent.

In third place on sixty six was Stevie McDowall. Even three sixes on his card did not prevent Stevie from a great back nine of thirty seven and a net sixty six and third place. Jim Mitchell was still celebrating a success at last week's beer tent (£2 for a wee bottle of out of date lager took me back to the days of JHD running this). Well done. A three, four, four start was spoiled by three sixes and an outward half of forty one. Jim began the inward half with a run of only two over par for holes ten through sixteen and will be slightly upset at two bogeys to finish. A resultant net sixty five is still good scoring.

The absolute runaway winner of both his group and also the Captains Day Trophy was Eddie Ptolomey. Fifteen handicapper Eddie will be pleased with a front nine of five over par. A par at eleven was the individual highlite of his back nine where he had pars at thirteen, fourteen, sixteen and eighteen as well to capture his first silverware at the club by two shots.

A wee moan (not unusual at all) from myself. In the past we have presented the winner at the Captains Day Dance and this was always an evening to remember (except if you were one of the more infamous winners who stayed after their round for a few refreshments and then regaled the gathering with some sort of an incoherent speech that sounded as though it was in Japanese). It is the only strokeplay handicap event, for members only, where the trophy is presented on the day and we should not lose this unique situation. This was not to be for Eddie, and I am sure he would have wished to share a round of seventy seven which beat his previous best by five strokes with all members, as the evening was cancelled due to lack of support. Shania Twain, Cher and Tina Turner had all committed to come along but we could only rustle up a lowly 14 male members and their partners and we had to pull the plug at some considerable cost. Surely Jim Orr has not been so bad a Captain? Well, best not answer that one.
 
Attached is the current situation in the race to be the most consistent scratch player in the club. Really close event this time around.

Member & Guest Day 2013

A great member & guest day with the weather being particularly kind. As usual the scoring for the winning places was ferocious but we had an outright winner in John Gunn (his second time winning the event) partnered by Kenny Ross from Gourock.

The winners of the raffle were Colin McCairn (4 ball at Dullatur), Robert Wilkie (Dollar), Francis O'Donoghue (a posh bottle of Jonnie Walker donated by Roy Brabender) and David Barr (Autographed football from St Mirren FC).

Many thanks to the help from Jim Mitchell (Barman extraodinaire), Pat McLaughlin and Ian McDermid (the raffle boys), Stan Austin, Nicol McCloy, Jim Orr and Peter Gallagher for ensuring everything went well at sign in etc.

Club Championship - Sat 27th July 2013

From the two round qualifier, where Andy Jamieson secured his second ever Syd Montford Trophy as the leading qualifier and Mark Cannon had an impressive runners up position, we had the usual mix of old hands, juniors and relative newcomers who would play in the matchplay stages.

On the first night of games the biggest upset was achieved by Steven Gordon when he defeated seven times winner, Crawford Rae. A sweet victory, indeed.

Graeme McLellan, who had been installed as favourite to win the bottom half of the draw notched up a win against Mark Cannon. Last years runner up, Chris McAulay would win against a tough opponent in Mark Scanlan.
Moving forward to the quarter finals, Steven Gordon found four times winner, Craig Thomson too tough to overcome. Chris McAulay impressed again with a fine win against Paolo Spella.

Having overcome a player in real form in Simon Middleton in the first round, holder, Alistair Roy, found himself one down with one to play against another player trying to peak for the championships in Andy Jamieson. A bogey down eighteen from Andy,however, would see these protagonists going to the fifth extra hole in a quite brilliant match that Alistair won. This would set up a game against Craig Thomson whom Alistair has never beaten in the championship before. This statistic was erased by excellent golf from Alistair as he ran out a five and four winner to reach a second successive final.

Going under the radar whilst all this took place was fifteen year old Cameron Jones. With his handicap having been seven earlier in the month, it is fair to say that Cameron started each game as the unfancied underdog. His first opponent was another junior in Jack Currie and Cameron demonstrated a short game which would serve him well during the week in overcoming Jack. Next up was the aforementioned Graeme McLellan. Graeme,a previous runner up in the championship, had a stranglehold on the game for a long time but just could not see off the determined Cameron and the game went to sudden death with the youngster delivering a body blow on the first hole when he sunk a huge birdie putt.

This would mean a game against yet another junior in Chris McAulay who was trying to return to a final which would be against his opponent from last year. This was a semi final played in a fantastic manner by both players where they demonstrated not only golfing prowess but also superb sportsmanship, which is a real credit to them. There were not too many holes won in a very tight match and, in the end, Cameron would go one up on sixteen and hold this till the end to earn a place in his first final.

Saturday morning saw holder Alistair Roy being matched against a junior again in the final. Alistair is the player in the club who has won most scratch prizes in the sweepstakes this year and has put together some tremendous rounds. Into the bargain, a tougher sequence of opponents on the way to the final could not have been found.
Five handicapper, Cameron, the youngest ever championship finalist, has no such golfing pedigree and might have been intimidated by the whole experience. This was not to be the case.

Cameron would,however, take a little time to settle into the game and he would find himself two down after six holes. Indeed, Alistair would have a putt on the ninth hole from reasonable range which could have taken him three up, but it slipped narrowly past.

Perhaps shaken slightly by this, Alistair would lose the next two holes to pars. After a run of pars and halved holes, the players reached the seventeenth hole all square and Alistair showed true form with a terrific birdie to go one up. This was his third of the round and Cameron was yet to have one. In an uncanny repeat of last year on the eighteenth, Alistair would produce a miraculous escape for a par at the last to retain his one up lead at the end of an excellent morning's play. The main talk amongst members at lunchtime was mainly on Alistair's chance to go three up on nine and would this come back to haunt him.

Remarkably, the afternoon would see even better scoring with the first three holes being halved in pars. A slip from Alistair on four would see Cameron squaring the match. A repeat of his morning birdie at five meant Alistair went back in front. Regulation pars on six were followed by an amazing chip in, from off the green, for a two at seven and his first birdie of the day, from Cameron, who refused to lie down. Alistair, the more powerful player, would par the ninth to regain the lead and be one up after twenty seven holes. Pars for both players on ten would be followed by a bogey from Alistair on eleven and,again, Cameron, found himself all square and putting the champion under real pressure as Alistair was continually finding himself needing to pitch and putt for pars and halves. Holes twelve, thirteen, fourteen and fifteen were halved and the game came down the stretch level. The tension was quite palpable although both competitors seemed to be handling it well outwardly. However, a poor tee shot from Alistair, would only find a bunker and Cameron did not get his on to the putting surface at all. Having chased the match for the best part of six hours, Cameron, unbelievably, holed his shot from off the green for a birdie two which Alistair could not match from the bunker and,for the first time in the game, took the lead.

Both players played superb drives at seventeen and then Cameron found the heart of the green with a great second shot. Incredibly, just a few short minutes after he was on the sixteenth tee all square, Cameron rolled in another tremendous birdie putt to find himself the champion of Greenock GC for the first time. An fantastic finish.
The relevant congratulations and commiserations go to both players for a match played in great spirit.

Fifteen year old Cameron is the youngest ever winner at the club and his winning address at his prizegiving may also have been the shortest on record. If he continues to improve the way he has done recently he may need to spend some time rehearsing a few more longer winded victory speeches.

The Fair Saturday Sweep & March Medal (29/06/2013 CSS: 69 Par: 68)

In weather more suited to the March Medal than the Fair Saturday Sweep, we had a good turnout of over 140 members. A quick look at the winners indicated that the best players in the club have gone on a traditional holiday in readiness for the Championship.

Current champion Ali Roy has now won more of the scratch prizes than anyone this year (who decided to donate our cash to this elite group?) with an excellent scratch seventy. He went out in one over par and also had a run of fourteen straight pars before taking a bogey at the last. The Red Bull must have worn off.
Recent Tennent Trophy winner, Davie Heron, secured the first section medal with his usual brand of conservative golf which he models on the Steau Bucharest side of the nineties. Out in forty, ten handicapper Davie, returned home in three over par for a season's best of seventy six. He managed to pip Paul McFarlane who scored his best with seventy one on the countback. Paul is one of the club's nearly men in that he nearly became a contender for the championship over past years.

Chris Connelly and Stewart Munro will be satisfied with net sixty sixes in section two, but the outright winner was Sat Patel. Postman Sat (and his black and white cat?) took some time out from the game recently and has returned with a generous handicap allowance of thirteen. Even completing his round with three bogeys in the last four holes did not dent an excellent gross seventy six.

A close run battle took place in the third section where the ever improving Adam Brown and Peter Harley scored net sixty nines. Peter has been a member of a very long time and has his own brand of 'Spoonerisms'. A favourite of mine was directed to the wee bench on the fourth tee. The bench has a small brass plaque where deceased members of one of the Winter Leagues are immortalised.  "No way do I want to see my name on the bench!" is a Harleyism of note. We believe he did not like the design of the plaque.

The winner by a single stroke was Danny Maloney. Two very steady halves meant that Danny had breached ninety for the first time this year with an eighty eight.

The timesheet for this year's Member and Guest Day has been put up in the locker room. It will take place on August 4.

Willow Trophy 19 June 2013
We must start with a congratulations to Charlie McDowell for achieving a lifetime best score which will probably never be repeated.

Last Wednesday saw him have five birdies and an eagle in his round of sixty six. A two at the fourth does not occur very often and I would probably suggest one every ten years or so. I cannot recall the last one.

He has now taken a stranglehold on the Willow Trophy itself with a net fifty nine. Perhaps Lawrie Wilson can give him a run for his money after scoring an excellent net sixty three.

Last Saturday saw the so-called Summer meeting where the weather affected the turnout dramatically. We do not have any rules as to a minimum number before a competition is valid, but, if the weather trend continues perhaps we should. We could allow a sweepstake to take place but not put a trophy up for grabs if less than eighty (half the normal) compete. We did not have fifty seniors playing and ended up with only two net scores in the sixties, sixty eight from Brian McLean and a sixty nine from Andy Jamieson. As you will see from the attachment, the Lyle Medal is absolutely wide open.

Saturday's event was the Charity Salver. Alan Moore has won this handicap competition on the last two years, which is a unique feat in the club, and was chasing a threepeat. Unfortunately it was not to be although he would have been thinking he had a chance after a birdie at the first.

In the third section we had Adam Brown taking some sweep money with a net sixty eight. Adam continues to improve as the months pass and will be well pleased. Second was Bob Hossack who had just returned earlier from a sojourn to Spain where the senoritas were impressed to see Charlie Paul in a Superman outfit. Bob had a nice net score of sixty seven. The winner of the group was Dennis McKelvie. Dennis is on the course every morning just now before going to work and it is good to see the hard work pay off.  Two halves of forty one showed a good level of consistency in a score of net sixty six.

The winner of the scratch prize this week goes to Al Roy with a sixty nine. This is the third time he has won the prize this year. One under for the front nine was followed by a two over par inward half and a net sixty seven. This was matched by six handicapper Brendan Harley. who had four birdies in his round which finished four, two, five, three!

The second section featured Simon Harley and Kenny Gilmour with net sixty eights which included double bogeys in the last few holes.Pat McCormick had no such slip up in his net sixty six.
The winner of the Charity Salver is Jim Gallagher. Twelve handicapper Jim is another member who puts a lot into his game and had ten pars in his round of seventy seven. The only previous trophy which Jim has won was the 2007 Turner Quaich, so he will be well chuffed today, particularly with the score.
Next Saturday will be the Fair Saturday Sweep and also the March Medal.

Laurie Trophy - Sat 8 June 2013

With every old folks home in Inverclyde seemingly evacuating on Saturday, it was obvious that the annual Seniors Championship was taking place at Greenock GC. An excellent turnout of almost 170 and a course that was set up for the Inverclyde Championships the following day meant long rounds. On the brighter side, most of those playing will not really know how long they were out.

We have waited years for it to happen, but, finally, Big Donny has got the hang of putting the card in on time. Perhaps a superb round of seventy four less fifteen for a season's best net of fifty nine was the catalyst. There was no one to match this in the competition that is the Laurie Trophy. In the space of a single round Donny had his best ever scratch score and also, incredibly for someone who has been a member for so long and plays every single week, has captured his first ever piece of silverware at the club. Well done on both fronts. It all started in the usual manner for the big chap when he took two bogies and a par at the third. Another couple of pars at the next six holes would have him out in forty one. He has probably done this on numerous occasions. Excellent pars on ten and eleven would set him up nicely for an astonishing run home on a really difficult course playing to its ultimate length. He covered the last six holes with three birdies, one par and two bogies for a back nine of level par thirty three. "Alex Roy (34), David MacFarlane (35), club champions Cammy (36), Kenny Roy (34), Thommo (35) and Al Roy (36)! You boys took a hell of a beating from Donny". Only Crawford Rae's back nine of 31 stopped him having the best of the day. Great stuff.

Mention must be made of Crawford's best of the day sixty seven. A run of eight straight pars was marred slightly by bogies at nine and ten. Two under par for his last six transformed a good round into a great one.

The draw for the Seniors Championship, which is made up of the top sixteen scratch scores, produced a mixed bag of old hands and newcomers and gives more members an interest. There is also a degree of panic emerging as we hear that Crawford and Alex Roy and a few others are fast approaching eligibilty for this event.
First out of the hat was five times winner, Ian McDermid up against Alan Moore. Big Alan has gone into semi retirement and will be grateful that a run in this competition will not mar his taking things easy. He can surely fit in one tie.

Dave Terrey and Raymond Barr will battle out a closely fought match with <and we really needed to toss a coin for this one, Dave sneaking through.
John C Houston, last year's runner up, will be lucky to progress against the people's favourite, Dennis.
Interesting to see the cabin boy sneaking into the matchplay stages for another year, but Alec Cloudsley should see him off.

Last year's winner, Alan Hulme is matched up against Dugald Carmichael in a very one sided affair.
Previous winners Kenny Piper and Alan Young are more evenly matched and the good big one will overcome the good wee one.

Alan Wylie is looking for a decent run in this competition and will be up against Archie. In the event of Alan going behind, then he could always suggest that someone is changing the channel on the telly to put Archie off. Alan to win.

The final game provides Donny with the reward for a marvellous round. A game against JHD! The past captain's handicap has sneaked up to eleven over the past two years and this might be a monitor of how he is playing. Unfortunately, and we hate to do it, we go for the PC to progress.

The dates for the rounds are tight, with a final on July 27 so please been quick to contact opponents for dates.

Members should be aware of a busy day on the course next Friday. There is a Ladies team match , a visiting party from Inverclyde council who are playing at different times through the day and also a team match where the tee is reserved from 1530 till 1700.

Last week saw the Turner Quaich being played for and congratulations go to Jackie Norman in securing this hard fought for trophy.

This year there are 16 players in the draw for the Whinhill Seniors matchplay as, in the recent past, there has been a situation where some players withdraw, leaving a member only playing a single round before the final. The extra numbers will also help to generate a bit more interest in the competition. The winner of the Whinhill Seniors represents the club in the Inverclyde Champion of Champions so is certainly worth making attempt to play in.
For the same reason there will also be 16 qualifiers for this year's Seniors Championship, the qualifying round being played this Saturday.

We had to wait on a playoff to see who went forward to the Reid Rose Bowl. It is a bit clumsy to have a playoff the following week nowadays, particularly with members shift patterns and next year we will go to the countback procedure to determine the qualifiers in the event of a tie for the final places. The draw threw up the following.

Playing for the honour of the car park spot will be past captains Charlie Paul and previous winner Alex Roy. Having gone to a lot of bother to get his handicap up I think Charlie might just win this one. Jim Maxwell should get the jail if he does not see off another ex polis in Murdo Parker.

Its a shame that leading qualifier Gordon McFarlane will be out his depth if the real Calum Gallagher turns up.

In a battle of the protagonists from one of the winter leagues, Raymond Barr pitches up against Peter Gallagher. There are a few shots difference just now and the predictor goes for Raymond. There will be no Gallagher father and son match up in round two.

The bottom half has Alan Young playing Robin Goodall. If anyone has stayed with this, we see that the standard throughout the draw, this year, is on the poor side, but we cannot have a quality field all the time. Anyway, Alan is practicing regularly and Robin is playing a huge number of games in Open competitions. Think the more battle hardened Robin will sneak it.

New member (always got to watch their handicaps!) Craig Sweeney will have 14 shots from another past winner in Craig Thomson. It would be daft to pick an unknown quantity, much as I would like, so we go for Thommo, who will be determined to repair the damage an early exit from the Challenge Cup from Bob Hughes has done to his reputation.

I am convinced that Frankie Bhoy Molloy's tactics used against big Hughie in the final of 2010, which went to three games, will not wash with Mark Cannon and he will blow the slow one away.

Club champion and winner in another century, Al Roy will be worried that he is up against Laurence Deveney, no relation and still a higher handicap than the real one. Larry is another who plays a lot. Ali is another who decided to win the Challenge cup this year and was tossed out even earlier than the other champion. He would like to think that he could meet Alex in the final. Unfortunately he will need to wait for another year. Lets wish him well in Sunday's champion of champions.

The draw has been made for the Challenge Quaich and the rounds are quite tight so its best to make an attempt to get games played as soon as possible.

The timesheet for the upcoming Greenock GC open is available in the locker room. The competition takes place on Sunday June 16.

Provost Trophy Saturday 18 May 2013

As usual, even though the weather was not at its best, we saw an excellent turnout for a very popular competition in the Provost Trophy. Donated in 1974 by the then Provost , members compete to win this fourball event and, in the process make a donation to the Provost's charity fund.

Over the years we have had numerous examples of players being disqualified with the best coming only a year ago when, and they shall remain nameless, a couple of members got their Nets mixed up with their Grosses. The very first hole was marked out as a four net five, only to be scratched out when they recalled it was really a three net four. You would have thought that a multiple champion of Whinhill and Big Donny would have known better!
Speculation is always rife as to what will qualify and, due to the weather, the cut off score crept up to sixty six. There were eight teams on this mark fighting for five places. Mark Scanlan and Stevie Mullan and Davie Docherty and Jim Maxwell will not be happy about having net fives at fifteen and seventeen to take them out the running. The most unlucky team to miss out were Charlie McDowell and Graham McIntyre who had a net five at the last and this was crucial when they were matched up against others on the same net back nine, followed by best last six, last three and finally last hole.

When the dust had settled and the draw (Ha! Ha!) was made, we were left with an interesting set of matches.
First out the hat was the team of Jim McNeil (Renfrewshire Champion of 2012) partnered by Donny Livingstone (sans Ian Wright). They are up against one of the winners from last year in Andy Jamieson along with Duncan Anderson who had a fantastic back nine of twenty seven. The experience of qualifying will be Jim and Donny's lasting memory of the event.

Stuart Alexander and the sleeping policeman should content themselves with having cleaned up in the sweep and twos as they will fall at the first against the other winner from last year, Craig Thomson along with Mark McCaig. Only a disqualification for their usual tardiness getting to the first tee on time will stop their progress.
2001 winners of the Provost, Gerry Donnachie and John Burns have managed to get to round three in the Daily Mail Foursomes defeating the Whinny earlier this week. Five up at one point ,they found themselves all square on sixteen and their opponents took the gas a tad when they missed a tiddler. It was up to John to knock in a twelve footer on eighteen to win one up. They play Ross McWilliams and Jamie Gallacher in what might be the most difficult game to call, but the young boys will prevail, possibly after a second game.
Gordon McTavish and Davie Bruce had a superb back nine of twenty nine and will feel confident of progressing further. However, they are up against old campaigners in Alex Roy and Cammy McLellan. Cammy has won this event on two occasions, both times partnered by Kenny Roy. We go with the experienced pair to go through comfortably.

The bottom half is slightly weaker of the two and opens up with a game between Scott Hunter and Simon Middleton against Gordon Parker and Jim Long. We can look no further than the fourteenth hole for the result of this game with the two youngsters going through.

Brian McCracken and Eddie Ptolomey are new to qualification and they are pitched against perennial qualifiers in Kenny Piper and Stuart Gallacher. Brian and Eddie had a net sixty six which featured a seven at fifteen and it is this statistic which makes me go for the new boys.

Another partnership which are unaccustomed to qualification are the the past captain's lackeys, cabin boy, Drew Bryceland and first mate, Bob McGill. The rarified atmosphere at this level will deprive them of the oxygen required against FTD (flatters to deceive) Neil Delussey and record holder with three wins the first of which was in 1986,John Houston.

In the final match we have recent Challenge Cup winner Davie Heron and last years Lyle medal winner Robert Johnstone. They are up against the winners of twenty years ago, Stevie Lapsley and Jimmy McAulay in a very interesting match. I would consider qualification this year from Stevie and Jimmy to be only a minor blip in an otherwise steep downward trajectory of their golfing careers and see Davie and Robert progressing.
The winner of the event overall will come from the top half for sure.

Next Saturday is a day where members are asked to donate £1 for CHAS and there will be at least four places in the golf day at Largs up for grabs. Good luck.

Crawford Bogey - Saturday 27 April 2013

It was a real pleasure to see 170 members turning up for the Crawford Bogey on Saturday and this figure was only bettered twice in the whole of last year. Invariably, the format seems to bamboozle players even more than the machinations of our local bus company and its subsidiaries.

Arriving from Gourock in the past couple of weeks is new member David Scott and he is not taking any time to settle in. Four down to the course after the first four holes, David would fight back to finish level and be equal second in the third section. The vagaries of the Bogey competition meant that Robert Dolan would score every number between two and eight,have an extremely creditable back nine of forty three, playing off twenty five, run up a net 71, but still finish all square with the course and joint runner up in the section.

There would be a fair number of players who would also finish level in this form of matchplay. John Leslie had a very consistent round, Alistair Livingstone will rue the two fives to finish, John McEleny had a collapse for the last three holes of his front nine but fought back well,Alec Irving had his best round in years with an effective net sixty seven and third place in section two. The Roy Bhoys would always play this format in its purity and Alex missed a real chance by losing the sixteenth and eighteenth holes with bogeys in his level round. Alistair would put together the best scratch score of the day (no prize this week) and, having been three down after five holes fought back well for his level round. Unfortunately, he could not do this in the Challenge Cup against Jeff Mitchell and we have a request from Dennis for anyone looking for a partner for the foursomes to get in touch!

One down after twelve holes, Stevie MacDonald was thinking he was just having an ordinary round. However, a great run of one under par, with the highlight being a birdie at fifteen, for the last six holes meant that he finished one up on the course and would be the best in section one.

The format would obviously suit a player who runs up a big score at a single hole and is relatively consistent thereafter. Jason Gillespie is such a golfer. Aided by two strokes on the fourth, Jason would race to the turn with the equal best of the day, in four up.

A poor back nine and a lack of bottle at the last would result in a two up score and he also would win his section.
Sparks generally fly when Davie Docherty is around and he really got wired in this week, by winning both his first two holes and also his last two. He will be disappointed in not being able to connect them, as the meat in this particular sandwich had four par threes accompanied by too many bogies. Davie's two up result would mean a runners up spot.

As is always pointed out, trophies are not easy to win at Greenock, and James Glover will remember his first for a long time.

Everyone must have a piece of good fortune to capture any event and James' approach to the sixth was spot on. A foot lower and it would have hit the bank and fell back, a foot higher and the best it would have been was a third shot from way behind the green. It actually hit the bank at the front and jumped up onto the green and fell in the hole for a two!

Twelve handicapper James' statistics for the day make impressive reading. One over par for his front nine. One under for his six holes from four to nine, with a run of par, par, eagle, par, par from the fourth hole. 4 up on the course for his front nine, James would try his best to throw away his lead and he would eventually require something from the last two holes to clinch the deal as he was now only two up, with a poor back nine looming. An excellent par net birdie at seventeen and a net par at the last would mean a three up victory and win the "Bogey" by one. His net sixtyfour will mean a substantial cut in handicap.

Congratulations go to Gerry Donnachie and John Burns who have won through to the next round of the Daily Mail Foursomes.

This competition claims to have the highest number of clubs in the UK participating and is extremely prestigious. Somehow the guys are drawn in round two to play Whinhill (Out of all those thousands of clubs? Weird. They must have the same guy who makes our "Draws"). We shall keep an eye on their progress.

Navy Cup Sat 20 April 2013

What a fantastic week for our club. We started last Sunday with the now hugely anticipated Winter League Masters where Charlie sold his soul, if ex cops have such a thing, around noon, to ensure there was reasonable weather to allow the event to go ahead. For anyone who was there, this day just improves with age and there were no winners or losers on the day, only winners, with the highly entertaining prizegiving and apres golf ensuring multiple sore heads on the Monday. Finance convenor Andy Jamieson rubbed his hands in glee at the bar takings.

Having kick-started the season, everyone now looked forward to the Navy Cup on the Saturday. It is always strange how the golfing gods redress any imbalance when the prizes are given out. Last year, Andy Jamieson and Craig Thomson scored 66 to run away with the Cup. This time around the winners would shoot twenty three shots more with an 89!

Last year's winners were definitely the lowest handicapped pairing and I believe this year's might be the highest, but fair play to them in their achievement.
There were really only four contending teams.

An excellent thirty eight out would see Paolo and Robin take a slight lead at the turn from Donald Petrie and Joe Ball who scored forty four. A double bogey at nine would be setback for Big Eck and Franky Bhoy Molloy, who are still recovering from losing their frontrunning reputations after being dragged round the course last week by renowned slowcoach Alex Roy in record time. Totally under the radar came Jackie Norman and Peter Harley who amassed a score of forty eight.

Coming home with a number of bogeys were Robin and Paolo with another thirtyeight. This would eventually mean a net score of 66.8 and would be a full shot away from a victory. Only they will know where this might have been made up.

Interestingly, the Roadrunners would have two 2s in the back nine but these were slighty spoiled by a number of bogeys and they would come home in thirty six, plus forty for a net 66.4 which would also be a shot away from winning. Their five at the last would have come from Ecks approach shot missing the green for sure. Frank should have gone in with the longer shot.

We were now left with four players whose total handicaps come to over ninety and are a testament to what electric trolleys and wee blue pills can do to keep you going. On a net basis the Don and Joe were five shots ahead at the turn. After twelve holes this lead had gone up by one. A six and seven against a three and five at the next two holes would see both teams more or less equal. Peter and Jackie would take a seven at fifteen. However, with the score of the day at a single hole, Donald and Joe took a four up the same hole. Inspector Morse couldnae work out how they managed that one! Their now three shot lead would become one when normal service was resumed with a five at sixteen and their determined opponents took a three. Both team would finish the last two holes with a five and a six to ensure the trophy would be won by only 0.2 of a shot and prove that the game can be exciting at all levels of the game.

Commiserations must go to Peter Harley who has now been runner up two years in a row, last time out with Duncan Gracie. He will probably partner Tommy Murphy next year to close the deal.
Congratulations go to Donald (whose once a year day was recently predicted?) and Joe, who have both won a couple of other trophies over their many years as members but celebrated as though it was their first (or last?).
Super Donald went ballistic, Joe just thought it was all simplistic.

Saturday Sweepstake - Sat 6 April 2013

Saturday's competition looked like being frozen out by the weather, but, using a long lost ruling, there was an agreed delay to allow everyone a game, albeit a bit later than expected.

In section 3 it seemed that Donald Petrie was on course for his usual once a year mega score, having gone out in a respectable fortyfive. Twenty six handicapper Donald then managed seven double bogeys in his back nine for a net seventy. Jackie Norman and Danny Maloney both finished their last six holes in eight over par for net sixtynine.

They were all falling like horses in the National. To secure third place in the section it was obvious that something extraordinary was required. Having joined the club only recently and been given an eighteen handicap of what now seems magical proportions, David Scott was quite pleased to reach the turn in a fortyeight which included a nine at six! His first ever round would see a highlite of a two at the thirteenth, which was the only two of the day, followed by three straight pars to finish his round of net sixtyeight.

In second place we had young Jason Gillespie. Jason did not quite reach the predicted heights forecast last year and has been putting in a bit of practice over the Winter. A fairly steady round of net sixtyseven will see him moving in a positive direction towards a handicap in the teens. The winner of the section was Robin Goodall.

Unjustly disqualified last year for a breach of timekeeping (some might say), Robin was a bit bewildered as to when he should tee off yesterday morning. Seventeen handicapper Robin went out in an excellent six over par and came home in seven over. Having honed his matchplay skills in last year's Whinhill Seniors, Robin might be one to watch in the Challenge Cup.

In section two, ten handicapper Pat Tinney displayed some Winter League form, but completed his last four holes in five over par for a net sixty nine. Davie Docherty tried valiantly to squander a good front nine of thirtynine with a couple of double bogeys on the way home. A net sixty eight would keep him out the sweep by a shot.

Quite man, Blaine Jamieson, playing off twelve had an almost great round. A birdie on twelve, which will help his eclectic, was allied to another ten pars. His eight at the fourth hole was never quite shrugged off. With no difference in handicap,Charlie Marner also returned a net sixty seven. Charlie put his together with one of his most consistent rounds and he will be pleased to have broken eighty for the first time in a while. I do not think that Graham McIntyre who had four doubles in his round of net seventy two will be too scared of this in the Challenge Cup, however.

Ten pars for most players constitutes a good round and Matt Bonnar had exactly that. Two halves of thirty eight put a real gloss on Matt's scorecard and he had the most consistent round in the section on the day.
In the first section Stevie McCafferty and Stuart Gallacher get their seasons off to good starts with net sixtynines. A two over par front nine from Stuart was excellent form , but he finished with a five and a six. Stevie had eleven pars or better in his round of seventy six. 

In third place came the Capitano ( If you thought the M & H was useless, then you are in for a real treat!). He thought he was auditioning for the job in the same fashion as "The Voice", only, when he spoke, everyone turned their chairs round with their backs to him!

Also can someone please let him know that when he gets a two, it does not need to be circled, starred and then astrerixed as the computer will pick it up. Anyway, two great halves of thirty nine and thirty eight saw his best round in years, but can confidently predict that bubble will be well burst at Archerfield next week.

In second place was Alec Cloudsley. Alec was only two over par for his first thirteen holes, but five over for his final five.

A great front nine of thirty six came from the winner, Davie Carney. With only a couple of minor blips, Davie came home in thirty eight for a superb net sixty six.

Texas Scramble 30 March 2013

After the previous debacle of a division of eight for the Scramble the self appointed so called M & H convenor made the handicap calculation of six (after he deleted around ninety e mails advising him to do so! Advice on removing this digit was taken on board.)

This time around the top three places were a mid handicap team, the extremely low team and, quite nicely, a team of players all with plus twenty handicaps. A good spread.

Creditable performances were seen throughout the day, but a great front nine of twenty nine was returned by Eddie Spence, Stevie McCafferty and Stevie Wilkie as a threeball. It was a bit too much to hope to keep it going in the back nine.

Two other teams who went out in twenty nine were those of Pat Tinney, Brendan Harley, Graeme McLellan and Cameron McLellan and that of Craig Brown, Mark Scanlan, Stephen Mullan and Chris Conelly. Both teams came home in a four under back nine, but, such is the difficulty of winning one of these scrambles, they were still three strokes off a winning margin.

Brilliantly, in third place were the team of Albert Finch, Robert Dolan, Joe Ball and Michael O'Neill. Their combined handicaps came to ninetyfour, and they actually lost 47 strokes from their total handicap with the runners up losing only five and the winners thirtyeight. For these guys to get reasonable balls in play, with the imposition of a mandatory tee shot every six holes is nothing short of exceptional. They started with a birdie and then had a their best run with a par at the fourth followed by a birdie at five. Absolutely tremendous.

The runners up were the team of Craig Thomson, Mark McCaig and David MacFarlane and, in a strange move which would backfire, they decided to drop Crawford Rae and draft in Murdie Carmichael, who himself had been dumped from his previous group. Undoubtedly, they had the best ever front nine for this event (or any other) with twentysix shots. They were eight under par for the first six holes, with eagles at holes five and six and birdies at all the rest! An inward nine of twentyseven was no less impressive for a record total of fiftythree and also a new high for the number of twos, with five. I am sure Crawford would have got them first place though.

The winning team of Davie Docherty, Jim Maxwell, John Ellis and Brian Stevenson had a more consistent round, starting well with three birdies in the first five holes and eventually being out in thirtyone. After twelve holes they were actually, in net terms, at least two shots behind a team who would finish out their last six holes in five under par. Something special was required. Fantastically, they birdied every hole over the final six and would race across the finishing line, not like some who were crowned champions on the day who coughed and spluttered their way and fell over.

We now move on to some strokeplay golf, staring with the medal on Wednesday, with 'preferred lies' still in operation.

Greenock GC also recently had their first competitive team match in the Mail on Sunday Classic. This is a five man team, playing individual matchplay games.

The team were up against a strong Gourock side, which was chosen by a real M & H organiser, who put out his club's 2012 matchplay winners. Where was Andy Jamieson (Challenge Cup), Paul McAulay (Reid Rose Bowl), even Robert Johnstone (Lyle Medal)? What about most improved player in Jamie Gallacher? What about Stephen Downie who won a shed load of sweep cash and must be able to play under pressure? Spence Trophy winner? Montford Trophy winner? Perhaps the actual club champion, Al Roy, might have got a call? No, none of these were deemed suitable. Absolute madness.

Instead we rolled up with the following assortment of Craig Brown, Chris Connelly, Scott Coulter, Scott Hossack and Peter Gallagher, some of whom had never been to Gourock before except for a bevvy! Under crystal clear instructions regarding the format and the order of play, they also totally ignored these tactics and went out in the order which suited them and this would prove decisive.

Out first was former Gourock member Peter Gallagher who secured a comfortable three and two win. Craig Brown was up next and he also managed an excellent victory of two and one. There are no easy wins when playing away from home and they should be congratulated. Scott Coulter performed admirably by getting a half and even had a chance of the win on the last green but the putt slipped by. This meant, that with three matches gone, we were leading two and a half to a half point. Scott Hossack was unfortunate in losing his game narrowly and now we were only a point ahead. In the last game was Chris Connelly who had never played Gourock before and he was at the receiving end of a bit of a hammering and trotted in from the course and back to the clubhouse not understanding the significance of being the last man out.

In the event of a tied game, the last match plays sudden death to see which club progresses. So, after letting his girlfriend know he was on his way home, Chris was told to get ready to back out. How stressful this must have been, to represent your club and your teammates in the golfing equivalent of a penalty shootout. Not only that, he was on the receiving end of either a text or a call from the girlfriend every two minutes asking how long he would be! An under pressure half at the first, followed by another at the second meant his phone was almost in meltdown. An incredible half at the third resulted in a call from a divorce lawyer. Eventually, when he got as far away from the clubhouse as possible, at the fourth extra, he succumbed to a par. His final interaction with the phone was a call to 'Matchmakers.com'. I am sure Chris will remember this for a long time and he actually done really well under the circumstances.

Saturday 16 March - Texas Scramble

When we have a Texas Scramble it is like Groundhog Day upon examining the winners. It is as common and as expected as the old "Rangers have been awarded a penalty" statement. The low men predictably carve this event up.
The 3 winning teams' handicaps came to a combined 5.2 and that includes Mark McCaig being drafted in to boost the actual winners handicap due to Murdie doing a bit of social climbing and peeheeing with the upper echelons of the club.
Ten out of the 12 players in the first three groups are category one golfers and the other two play off six. The next Scramble will be tougher for them, I predict.
Starting with an amazing seven straight birdies were Duncan Anderson, Scott Hunter, Paul McAulay (Reid Rose Bowl 2012) and Andy Jamieson (Challenge Cup 2012) and looked to have this sewn up. Out in 28 must have been the stuff of dreams. However, the actual dream team (I wonder if a nightmare can be considered a dream?) of Mark McCaig, Crawford Rae, David MacFarlane and Craig Thomson, matched them. It was now a two team race with the Roy Bhoys and Paul McFarlane putting up a great attempt to catch them but their outward half of thirty left them too much to do even though they came home in seven under par . Duncan's team started the back nine with four birdies from the opening five holes, the exception being a par at eleven to be on the fifteenth tee eleven under par. With Duncan's boss' team (which might have been a factor in the final analysis?) matching them, it was all down to the final four holes, albeit Duncan had a handicap advantage of 1.3 strokes, whatever that looks like. A level par finish from the young bucks was never going to be good enough against a team with multiple championships in their locker. Crawford put the icing on the cake by bringing his team home with birdies at 15, 16, 17 and a par at eighteen to win the sweep money by net 0.5. Fantastic stuff.
This week's competition is really hard in that the team of four need to have three counting scores at each hole. Tough.
A gentle reminder regarding the matchplay competitions. The draw will be made very early in April, so please get your name down asap.

Saturday March 9 Fourball Event

Having deciphered the cards for this week's competition, we find that almost 120 members took part in the fourball. That equates to 600 attempts at a two at the par threes. We got 9! Anyway, looking at last year's results it came to light that Jim Docherty and Jim Gallagher shot a net 65 to be in fourth place. How they managed to repeat this in 2013 is incredible! Another pair who will be disappointed is that of Jim Orr and John Stark who returned a sixty six but we can only guess about the fives at seven and fourteen.
Looking at one of the joint winners' cards, the immediate thought about S Lapsley and P Gallagher was that it would have been nice to be a fly on the wall after they run up a six at the eleventh! Turns out it was Pat Gallagher.
Danny Maloney and Brian Stevenson had an almost error free round for their 64, barring a five at fourteen, and both will feature heavily this year. Definitely the best round of the day was from Jason Gillespie and Brian McLean who shrugged off losing 11 strokes from their playing handicaps to record their 64. 

I would like to point out that the refurbished grass banks at some bunkers are the actual areas where free relief is given if a player's ball lands in them. The bunkers are in play.
If a player lands in a bunker he must play out. If he does so and lands within any painted off embankments then he may take relief or play the ball as it lies. He never drops the ball back into the hazard.

The entry sheets for the Challenge Cup and Captain's Foursomes are posted in locker room. If anyone is totally unable to get up to put their name down then let me know and I will do so.

  • 4 Man Strokeplay - Saturday 2 March 2013
  • Gents,
    the season got off to a terrific start last Saturday with a very healthy field taking advantage of the excellent weather. This is exactly the same as last year where we had a good March and slowly disintegrated.
    There was no doubt as to the winning team. They had the best front nine of the day and also the best back nine by a mile. On his own, Jamie Gallacher scored a net 61 and that was with a lost ball at the sixth. He took a drive and a wedge down 9. He chipped in from off the green at 13. At the 16th he was within 3 feet but 2 of his team beat him to the punch where Jim Mitchell and Ross Ballantyne got their putts in first.

    Another fantastic way to start your season was achieved by Davie Heron. A drive up the first was followed by holing his second shot. He can only go downhill from there!

    There will be some photos appearing on the website of a few worthies on the opening day.
