Whiting Bay Golf Club
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.
