Weekend Competition Report
By Guy Sutton
Saturday saw the Port Erin Town Cup being played in ideal conditions. A large field turned out for this Rowany Major and some exceptional scores were returned. The winning score was a tremendous 60 net, the result being decided on a count back! Alan Guy just inched ahead of Steve Meehan scoring a fantastic 72 gross off a 12 handicap. Alan played the first nine in 39, then had a great back nine, with 2 birdies and 7 pars to return in 33. Steve must have thought the competition was his after carding a 78 gross off an 18 handicap but had to settle for second place. Coming in third place was Dickie Corrin with a 74 gross, 64 net, a score which would normally have ensured a top place!
The Tower Insurance Stableford round 8 took place on Sunday. Orry Teare took top spot with 39 points, on a count back ahead of Bunty Howarth also on 39. Just one adrift was Gareth Jones on 38 points.
