THIRTY-two four-man teams took part in Whinhil Golf Club’s Texas Scramble Gents’ Open tournament.
The team of David Casement (Port Glasgow GC), Peter Daly, Andy Hendry and Chris Payne (The Carrick on Loch Lomond Golf Club) return a magnificent score of 51.875 to clinch the victory.
This was the ninth year of the Greenock club hosting the competition after its inception in the club’s centenary year. The wind picked up as the day went on making scoring in the afternoon a little tougher on a course in really good shape, even at this early stage of the season.
The team of John Donald, Myles Gallacher, Brian Hamil and Paul Jones (all members of the host club) claimed second place with a great performance and nett score of 52.625 (best scratch score of the day – 11 under par 57).
Third place went to the team of Gary Havlin, Jim McAulay (Greenock GC), Chris McDaid (Greenock GC) and Barry O’ Donnell (Greenock GC) with a nett score of 56.625.
Fourth place went to the team of Colin Coventry, Harry Coventry, Paul Coventry and Jim Maxwell (Greenock GC) with a fine nett score of 54.25
