East Lothian Junior Golf results
We had a close to capacity turnout of 27 junior golfers at our second May holiday competition at North Berwick's short course on Monday 20th May.
The short course again proved a great venue for golfers both with and without handicaps. The weather was kind so there was again lots of good scoring and a very close competition.
It was great to see another of our regular golfing girls, Gemma McArdle, take the top spot in the Non-handicap Division. Gemma beat Frankie Moore into a very close 2nd by one point and Frankie in turn beat his little brother Harry Moore into a very close 3rd by only 1 point!
We also had a new name at the top of the Handicap Division, Ben Churn, who beat Joseph Armstrong into another close 2nd by one point! With such a close competition it proves that every putt really does count both individually and for your team! Full results below:
1st - Ben Churn (25 points)
2nd - Joseph Armstrong (24 points)
3rd - Rory McArdle (21 points)
Non Handicap Division
1st - Gemma McArdle (26 points)
2nd - Frankie Moore (25 points)
