Kegan Jamieson had prevented Farr from carrying away another top prize a few days earlier in the August Mid-week Medal as he won on countback with a net 69.

Gerry Parton and Joe Fisher were victorious in the George Stewart Trophy following a net 72. Ian Abrahams and Graeme Thomson (73) were second on countback from Tommy Hamilton and Pat Annand.

Peter Young (71) was runner-up, Chris Hoy (72) clinched the second division, while Helen Roy (75) finished one stroke ahead of Susan Evans in the ladies competition.

Roger Hubbard produced the standout round of net 67 in the Seniors Order of Merit Medal as the 15-handicapper covered the last 11 holes in gross two over par. David Kelly and Bill Fairweather both shot 70.

High-handicapper Luke Knibbs was in fine form in the second week of the Summer League as he smashed 43 points. Chris Charter (41) was runner-up on countback from former club captain Trevor Herring.

Another past captain compiled the lowest gross score of 76 in the first round of the Chalkie White Cup as Ernie Rayner finished five ahead of Gordon Shields and Barry Stone.


The Ladies Medal required countback to decide the winner after Mandy Rutter and Elizabeth Talbot compiled the equal best mark of net 75. Rutter secured the honours, while Barbara Harwood (76) was third.


Mick McGrady’s net 51 secured the plaudits in the August Medal as he finished two ahead of Gino Semeraro, with Shaun Clark in third on 54.

Two strokes was also the margin of victory in the ladies competition as Lyn Jenkins (60) got the better of her sister Margaret Anderson and Jill Kennelly.
