Whit­ing Bay Golf Club

A lovely June day on Sun­day June 3, saw the two Jamies, Macpher­son and Ste­wart, con­test the fi­nal of the 2018 WBGC Cham­pi­onship.

One down af­ter four holes, Jamie Macpher­son went on a five-hole ram­page to go to the turn four up. The back nine saw only two holes change hands to leave Jamie Macpher­son four up af­ter 18. He start- ed the af­ter­noon round with three wins in suc­ces­sion to go seven up only for Jamie Ste­wart to win the next three. Un­for­tu­nately, he then mis­cued an iron at the 8th, leav­ing him un­able to match Jamie Macpher­son’s up and down for a par four.

With nine to play, Jamie Ste­wart was five down and with a moun­tain to climb and de­spite him win­ning the 12th with a fine birdie three, the match ended with a con­ces­sion on the 13th green for a com­pre­hen­sive vic­tory, and his third club cham­pi­onship, to Jamie Macpher­son. It’s fair to say that, as with many matches, the con­test was closer than the six and five score might sug­gest but the new cham­pion’s short game, al­ways a strong point with him, was es­pe­cially good on the day.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to the new club cham­pion on his vic­tory and to both fi­nal­ists on the sport­ing and friendly man­ner in which the match was played. Thanks to the small band of sup­port­ers who turned up and to John and Louise in the club­house for the ca­ter­ing and re­fresh­ments, su­perb as al­ways. Last but by no means least, grate­ful thanks to Ste­wart and James for their hard work over the past few days get­ting the course, es­pe­cially the greens, back into shape af­ter the hot dry spell of weather; an amaz­ing turn­around con­sid­er­ing the con­di­tions they faced just a week or so ago.

Fri­day June 1, Ladies Smiddy Brae Sta­ble­ford. A to­tal of six ladies played in fine con­di­tions. The tro- phy was kindly do­nated by Mar­jorie Brown a few years ago. The win­ner was Pa­tri­cia Tait, who con­tin­ues her good form, with 37pts, 27. The nine hole part of the com­pe­ti­tion was won by Mar­garet Auld with 16pts, 11.

Sun­day June 3, J C Reid Tro­phy fi­nal. In a closely fought match, Paul Rob­son held off 2104 win­ner Stan Rainey to win the J C Reid by one hole.
