The second week of the midweek competition saw not quite so many players, but some good scores coming in. Bonus points for the week for all their team playing went to Plus Fours and Full House. Shire Sharks came in with the best scores for the week with 79 in total, followed closely by Garrie’s Hot Shots on 75.
Individual High Scores went to Roger Cox on 22 and Matt McFarlane with 22. Can everyone please put their NAMES on their cards, NOT their initials. They are a bit hard to track down if someone has the same initial and handicap.
A reminder that we need email addresses for some of the teams so we can send out any info to pass on to team members.
