A grand end to my golfing year


Like a Farquar to the slaughter.

Fat chance you thought I'd do so well this year....

Today I had my last competitive match of the year and won it.  My Arran chums (plus Tom) met at Wee Boab’s course, Ravelston, and I shot 35 stableford points and as a result shared the spoils with Derek.  Tom had a mare.

So, my year looked like this…Runner up in our Arran Tourney in May, for the second year in a row; my best ever finish with my SQ chums at St Andrews, despite a crippled back; an 83 on the Queens Course at Gleneagles in November; a number of top 20 medal finishes in the summer (including my three best ever medal scores – one of which saw my handicap cut for the first time ever) and a 10 -1 record against Tom this year.  Undoubtedly my best year ever.

OK, It’s not Major winning form, but it was a considerable step in the right direction.  And whatever you think I’m well chuffed.
