played at Gourock today
Congratulations go to Sarah Kirby (Ranfurly Castle)

break 80. Despite having a 9 at the 8th, she was out in 39 and then came
back in 40 for a gross 79. Playing off a handicap of 10 meant she
had a net 69 winning the Scratch - 12 handicap award.

with the CSS being 75 for the day, Sarah was 7 under for
handicap purposes and is therefore cut by 1.4 ----- Well done Sarah.
