Autumn Meeting 23rd/24th August Downfield G C
Autumn Meeting 23/24th August 2018 Downfield Golf Club
No place like home for Graham Bell, winner of autumn meeting at Downfield
Graham Bell (Downfield) and Derek Paton (Dunnikier Park) led the field at the end of the first round and they were still there in first and second places after the second and final round of our autumn meeting at Downfield Golf Club, Dundee.
Graham, playing over his home course, headed a field of well over 100 with so-steady rounds of 70 and 71 for a three-under-par total of 141. His winning margin would have been greater but, after birdieing the 10th, 11th and 12th in his second round, he bogeyed the 17th and 18th holes.
Derek, the only danger, left himself with mission impossible after bogeying the second, third and fifth in his second round. He did recover a bit to birdie the fourth, 11th, 12th and 14th, finishing with rounds of 70 and 73 for 143.
Ronnie Clark (Erskine) bounced back from a double bogey 6 at the first to birdie the second, fourth, 13th and 15th in coming through to fill third place on 145 (73-72).
Derek did however have the consolation of topping the Handicap section with a Net score of 141, with Duncan Hamilton (Mortonhall) second 3 shots behind on 144.
