Players battle conditions in cup
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.
