Friday 27th April - AGA Seniors Crystal Rd 1
A beautiful if chilly April evening for the 1st round match against Brodick GC.
In the first game out, David Blair and David Brookens found themselves 3 down to Nicol Hume and Dougie Robertson at the 13th tee only to claw the deficit back to all square on the 16th tee. Brodick then won the hole but the two Davids won 17 to square the game and 18 to win by one hole, the first time they had been ahead in the match.
In the second game a similarly close tussle was fought out between Bobby Macrae and John Mays, representing Brodick, and WBGC’s pair of John Pennycott and Dougie Auld. That also went to the final hole where, in the rays of the setting sun, Dougie made a fine up and down from beside the green for a 3 to win the hole and halve the game.
Whiting Bay therefore prevailed by 1 hole and will now meet Lamlash in the semi finals.
