Crich­ton golfers reach two na­tional fi­nals

Dumfries & Galloway Standard - - SPORTS -

Crich­ton golfers have had a very suc­cess­ful few weeks.

Two mem­bers of the club have reached the na­tional fi­nals for Cap­tains and Sec­re­taries at the Golf Club Elie on Tues­day, Septem­ber 19.

Lee Ster­ritt and An­drew By­ers booked their place af­ter win­ning the re­gional qual­i­fier with an im­pres­sive 61 nett at Pee­bles Golf Club in Au­gust

Lee also won the re­gional qual­i­fier of the Scot­tish Na­tional Hand­i­cap Cham­pi­onship at Pow­foot with part­ner An­drew Ross with a nett 67 on a very windy day. The fi­nal is at the Tor­rance course at St An­drews on Fri­day, Septem­ber 22.

Un­for­tu­nately, the two An­drews are un­able to com­pete in the fi­nals so Lee has drafted in vice-cap­tain Paul Gor­man for the first and past cap­tain Karl Sch­nei­der for the sec­ond event.

Ladies con­test The Pear­mount Cup ladies in­vi­ta­tional was played at Dum­fries and Gal­loway Golf Club on Sun­day. Twelve cou­ples com­peted in very mixed weather but that didn’t de­ter the win­ning pair Louise Bry­den (DG) and Kirsty Thom (Sou) with 43 points. Louise and Kirsty had just met and played to­gether for the first time, re­turn­ing an ex­cel­lent score. Run­ners up were He­len Kerr and Aileen Mor­ri­son 40 pts and Rose­mary Kirk and Anne Kerr 39 were third. Cap­tain Mau­reen McKer­row pre­sented the cup and prizes at the close of play.
