OMPC Results 2017
Despite quite tricky and cold conditions for the 86 competitors on Saturday the scoring was remarkable. We had 67 grosses, 61, 60 and even 57 netts and these weren't even the winning scores!
In the gross section playing partners Steven Rendall and Kenny (new irons) Inkster both returned two over 67s but it was Ewan Rendall (a bit of a Stromness specialist these days) whose 66 with 5 birdies proved to be the lowest on the day.
In the nett section a fabulous 57 nett (68 gross) by Stan Seator would have walked it any other year but he was to be denied by an even more remarkable 56 nett (78 gross) by Michael Parkinson! The 22 handicapper was out in 35 shots and despite back to back 6s at 14 and 15 he clung on to edge out his playing partner Stan and his handicap was duly chopped!
Thanks again to Streamline for their continued support which is greatly appreciated by the club. Also thanks to Ray for getting the course in as good a condition as possible in these arctic conditions!
