Streamline Open 2011

News Posted: 15th May 2012

This past Saturday saw 72 competitors tee it up for the 2011 Streamline Open, one of the most popular events of the season thanks to the generosity of the sponsors, Streamline Shipping, who provide a barbeque and beer tent for the participants.

The damp weather of the preceding week meant the course was wet in places but still beautifully presented and received nothing but praise from the golfers.  The day, thankfully, stayed dry, although a blustery wind made for testing conditions, which was reflected in the final scores.

Fifth in the handicap section was Stephen Tulloch with a (80) net 68, sneaking fourth on countback was Chris Conboy (82) also net 68.  One shot better in second was James Ramsay (81) net 67 who edged out Richie Smith (79), again net 67.  But beating them by two shots was money man Ian Pottinger, who always seems to be round about the prizes in the Opens, with an (82) net 65.

The scratch section saw footballer Ross MacDougall take third with a (74). Second, on (72) was Grant Wiseman, who must rue starting the back nine with a run of three bogeys.  But taking the title, to add to his Shetland Open victory, was Michael Boxwell a shot better off with a (71).  Michael’s card was an example of consistency with just 3 bogeys and all the rest pars.

Other prizewinners on the day were Longest Drive – Ross MacDougall, Nearest the Pin in 2 – David Nicol, Nearest the Pin at 12 – Tom Simpson and Nearest the Pin at 17 – Gibbie Pottinger.

Thanks once again to Streamline Shipping for their continued sponsorship and their team of Gillian, Mick and Sylvia for the wonderful hospitality provided.
