Sun­day Oc­to­ber 8, The Tay­lor Tro­phy. Tak­ing full ad­van­tage of the fine au­tumn con­di­tions, a se­lect field of four elite golfers com­peted for the Tay­lor, an or­nate and pres­ti­gious tro­phy dat­ing from the very ear­li­est days of the club.

Scor­ing was good from both teams with Stan Rainey and David Brookens just pip­ping John Pen­ny­cott and Ge­orge McKech­nie on the fi­nal green, although some dis­quiet at the hand­i­cap­ping sys­tem as ap­plied by the club­house com­puter may yet re­sult in this out­come be­ing re­ferred to the court of ar­bi­tra­tion for sport.

As things stand, how­ever, the re­sult is as fol­lows: 1 Stan Rainey and David Brookens 11, 58, 2 Ge­orge McKech­nie and John Pen­ny­cott 8.8, 59.2. Magic twos, Stan and David at the 17th and Ge­orge and John at the 17th. This is prob­a­bly the only oc­ca­sion in his­tory the en­tire field has scored twos at the 17th.

Fix­tures: Sun­day Oc­to­ber 15, Hamil­ton Salver, draw at 10am.

Sun­day Oc­to­ber 22, Win­ter Cup, first round, post­poned from Sun­day Oc­to­ber 1.
