Sunday 19th September – The Taylor Trophy Greensome
Another competition we were unable to play last year, the “Taylor” dates from 1890 although played for at Whiting Bay only since 1976 when it was donated to the club by the family of its first winner, Dugald McKelvie. Fitting then that on its re-introduction, one of our oldest trophies was won by the oldest pairing in the field with John Pennycott and David Brookens pipping Stuart McGregor and Gus MacLeod on a last nine countback.
1st John Pennycott & David Brookens (13) – 60 acb
2nd Stuart McGregor & Gus MacLeod (14) – 60
3rd David Hadden & David Morrison (13) – 61
12 played and no 2s were returned.
