Saturday 1st July – The Clark Trophy
Douglas Auld and John Pennycott played out a thrilling final of the Clark Trophy, the club’s handicap matchplay trophy dating back to 1912. After both players met trouble on the 2nd, John established a 4 hole advantage by the turn only for Douglas to mount a charge on the back nine to level the tie by the time they were on the 17th tee. After winning the 17th John found his approach shot to the 18th blocked by the large green side tree and extra holes seemed likely. However Douglas was unable to capitalise and John managed to win the hole and the match by a 2 hole margin. Congratulations to both players on a fine contest and to John for his winning performance.
