Fireaway Golf Cup 2011

The above match was played over the Braids No 1 course on Monday 15th August 2011. First of all, it was too much too hope that we would have had a nice day, in what has been a dreadful summer. The ground was heavy and there was very little run on the fairways. The greens were slow, which is unusual for the Braids and there was a stiff northerly wind.
 
Paul Edwards won the Cup for the second year in a row. He scored 34 stableford points. It was a tremendous effort, given the conditions. He is fast becoming the "Tiger Woods" of the Golf Section. I hope he doesn't mind me saying that! I was second, finishing a long way behind with 25 points and Alan Scott was third with 23 points.
 
Also playing were Rab Redpath, Ally McLeod, Dougie Gordon and Willie Fordyce. By a sheer coincidence, my cousin was playing in the group behind us. He is Professor of Psychiatry in either the University of Ottawa or Vancouver. I can't remember which. He is over here on holiday.  After witnessing me groveling around gorse bushes for golf balls and missing two inch putts, I think he will be offering me some advice. It won't be about golf though!
