Play­ers battle con­di­tions in cup

Rutherglen Reformer - - Sport -

Play­ers at Cam­bus­lang Golf Club bat­tled through ex­tremely dif­fi­cult con­di­tions in a bid to lift the cov­eted Gor­man Cup.

The main stroke­play event of the year for play­ers with a hand­i­cap of 13 and above was played out in a dry but very windy day on Satur­day, June 24.

The wind made it tricky for play­ers by mak­ing the tra­di­tion­ally more dif­fi­cult holes even harder than nor­mal.

A few play­ers how­ever, man­aged to battle through the weather to post some im­pres­sive scores which cul­mi­nated in a one- shot vic­tory for John Cromp­ton.

He man­aged a com­bined 36hole score of net 140.

In sec­ond place with 141 was Michael Lo­gan and third with 144, was Liam Browne.

Michael Lo­gan also picked up the Rod­ney Tay­lor tro­phy for best scratch score in the day.

Con­grat­u­la­tions went to John for his hard fought vic­tory and a spe­cial thanks went go to the greens staff for set­ting up the course in such good con­di­tion for one of the main events of the year.

In other club news, Cam­bus­lang mem­ber JJ Smith was se­lected to com­pete on Sky TV’s Trilby Tour.

He fin­ished fifth out of 117 com­peti­tors over the chal­leng­ing Carus Green Golf Course in Ken­dal, Cum­bria. This qual­i­fies him for the tour fi­nal to be played over Hull Golf Course on Au­gust 31, 2017.

John was ably as­sisted by another Cam­bus­lang mem­ber John Shanks who was his caddy on the day. Their progress can be viewed on Sky sports.

Well de­served John Cromp­ton is pre­sented with the Gor­man Cup
