Competition Scratch Score: 76 - Reduction Only
The Club Championship qualifying was played in conditions more suited for December than June. The qualifying round played off the medal tees produced only one score in the 70s - a 78 by Jonathan King, the defending Club Champion. A number of players (your correspondent included) were sweating on scores in the mid 90s until the last game in produced two 91s which spared those above that number from the ordeal of playing again that afternoon.Not surprisingly the CSS was 76 (reduction only) as there were no nett scores below 80.
Given the conditions, the afternoon matchplay round was played from the medal rather than championship tees.
The following day normal summer conditions were resumed with sunshine and light winds for the semi-finals and final. In the first semi-final Jonny Kink beat Graeme Rutherford to set up an afternoon final against Gavin Lawrie Jnr who beat Charlie Macneal in the other semi.
In the final, Jonny King took an early lead with Gavin Lawrie finding a number of bunkers from the tee. Despite a brief fight back by Gavin, Jonny held on and ran out a worthy 2&1 winner.
