Gordon lights up the course to help team win Midnight Cup!

News Posted: 21st June 2019

25 players turned out for the Midnight Cup, in what can hopefully become a regular and well supported fixture in our calender for years to come. 

Each player completed a 9 hole individual stableford, where a total points tally was worked out from a combination to give them a Team score.

1 players score out of the 3 will count for holes 1-3, 2 players scores out of the 3 will count towards holes 4-6, and on holes 7-9 all 3 players would have their scores counted to create a total points tally. This gives you a points tally for a combined 18 holes of golf as your team. 

Special mention to Michael Groat, Jamie Robertson and Jimmy Burnett who took the Team aspect very seriously and made sure to enjoy the occasion to the full. Perhaps the real winners here!

In 3rd place was Grant Wiseman, Gary Wiseman and Mike Stein, who scored a total of 37 points. 

2nd place went to Heather Hogg, David Nicol and Ramsay Hogg with 38 points. 

The winners this year with a superb 41 points was Caroline Keith, Janice Johnston and Gordon Keith. Gordon had 2 birdies on the round (2nd and 6th) which really pushed up their points total to take a clear victory and the trophy.

There was an appeal lodged during the points tallying from the 3rd place Team member Grant wiseman, who tried to claim that they had 42 points as a team, but that the team also consisted of a 4th member. Mens Captain and organisor Ramsay dismissed this effort to boost their score, without so much as a hint of a bribe being produced to convince him to allow it.

Unfortunately due to the odd number we could not get a team together for the last Gentleman in the door. The late arriving player was still able to put in a 9 hole score as an individual but had to just play alongside a Team with his scores not able to count towards the total. 

The irony of the situation is not lost on the Mens Captain.
